Uganda: Star Trail - Eagles Suffer New Year Hiccup

Eagles Production had a show at Hotel Africana and the turn-up was unusual for them.

While there was a busy bustle outside Hotel Africana on Wampewo avenue, the long queues were not heading for the band's show at the hotel; rather, they were going to Kololo where overnight prayers were scheduled.

Some band members were overheard blaming the Kololo prayers for taking their clients, while others thought the lack of fireworks was the cause of the low turn up.?The show started at 9pm with Hindu Asha, Mega Dee, Yoyo, Kenzo and Dr Hilderman, who ushered in members of the band. But most of the seats remained vacant.

Chameleone releases Badilisha:

Despite being in trouble over Robert Karamagi, the man who allegedly set himself ablaze at the Seguku home of Jose Chameleone, the singer has released a new song, Badilisha, for 2013. Like he released Valu Valu at the end of 2011, he hopes Badilisha will sail him through 2013.

Badilisha was composed by Chameleone in Kiswahili, English and Luganda. It was produced, mixed and mastered by Producer Paddyman of Audio 1 studios.

Sources close to Chameleone say he is so worried he might be arrested in connection to Karamagi's death and hopes to use the song to clean his image.

Martin Oscar ?is CBS' best:

It is rare for fellow workers to single out a colleague who has outshone them as CBS workers did when they chose Martin Oscar Kintu as the best presenter. ?Kintu, who presents Mugyebale on 89.2FM, is credited for being multilingual as he speaks almost all Ugandan languages and he always stands in for whoever is absent.

Nantongo to launch Kagiiko:

Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata may be on her neck ever since she got married to a non-Muslim, Sam Ssimbwa, but clearly no curse is about to stop Hajjat Sophia Nantongo. She is putting an eventful 2012 behind her to launch her new album, Kagiiko Nnattabula, on January 18 at Equatoria parking lot.
