Uganda: Star Trail - Walden and Chosen Split

At Kenzo's album launch at Hotel Equatoria's parking lot last Friday Chosen Blood appeared alone on stage and did Pressure Ya Love, the duet with his cousin Faridah Walden.

After the performance, he was quick to make the announcement that they are no longer singing partners, but there is no bad blood.

"We decided that each takes a solo career, but we shall team up whenever necessary," Chosen explained further.

This comes as no surprise, seeing how their second single Nalonda Ggwe did not take off.

Kigula blacks out

Talk of the brown bottle and its powers. Robert Kigula who was accorded a VIP seat during Eddy Kenzo's launch at Hotel Equatoria's parking lot last Friday, spent most of the evening in a blackout.

A lady who sat next to him was at task to wake him up, but the man cannot be blamed; he works for Parambot, the brewers of Moonberg lager. You know what they say; man drinketh where he worketh! Good branding, Kigula.

Zari and hubby in accident

It was a bad ending for Zari Hussein and husband Ivan Ssemwanga. After they caused inflation in London bars, the couple was involved in a nasty accident in London over the weekend. Those who had waited for the couple on Saturday night at Club La Face for a promised open-bar waited in vain and when the news of the accident broke, they all looked crestfallen.

Zari and Ivan were slated to bid their fans farewell in an open-bar party at the club, but on their way, they got involved in a road accident. They have since flown back to South Africa for more medical attention after a London hospital cleared them.

Alina Talents for Hungary

Alina Talents, the actors of Bukedde TV's Emboozi Z'abagalana, will be leaving for Hungary for the Budapest World Intercultural festival that starts on August 10.

According to the 22-man group head, Aloysius Matovu Joy, most of them are travelling abroad for the first time and are very excited. He said they would fly the national flag higher showcasing Uganda's rich cultures in dances and poems.

Kalibbala off the shelf

The date is this Friday when singer Priscilla Kalibbala will be taken off the shelf by Michael Kimbugwe. The songstress is introducing her beau to her parents this Friday and a wedding will follow on August 4.

Kalibbala's invitation cards interestingly have no cliché pictures of the couple; they instead have a small mug shot of Kalibbala and a big portrait of Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi and the Nnaabagereka, with the words: "Mukama wangaaza Bbaffe" or, Lord preserve our king.

Maybe it is because Kimbugwe is a Buganda prince.

Fiona modelling for Christ

Those close to Fiona Wamala Mukasa are wondering why she changed her name to Fiona Kobz. But she is quick to defend the change of names and her new ministry called Modelling for Christ.

"Kobz is just a stage name, I just felt like doing this because I like the name. Kobz means God is Great, and Modelling for Christ is just my ministry which is called International Gospel Ministry that includes talent shows, brother's keeper, how to choose a right partner and modelling for Christ. Modelling for Christ is how one dresses for the glory of God," says Fiona, who said her Fiona Wamala Mukasa name still stands.
