Uganda: Navio Is Searching

This should certainly be good news for the single ladies out there: hip hop star Navio is single and searching.

Appearing recently on The Sporah Show, which airs on British Sky Channel 182 and BEN TV, among others, Navio (real name Daniel Kigozi) explained his fallout with Sophie Rusoke, with whom he has two children.

"My lifestyle is hard to cope with. She knew I was an artiste but she could not have predicated my success of moving from being in the top 10 to the top three in Uganda," he said.

Navio says success has meant being away from home for months on tour, which strained the relationship. Rusoke was quoted in one of the dailies to have said that nobody could take her place in as far as taking care of Navio was concerned. But the star with charming looks has come out to say he is available.

He has been severally seen in the company of gorgeous young women, possibly auditioning for the role that belonged to Rusoke. He was even rumoured to be moving out with fashion designer Gloria Wavamunno but seems like nothing tangible came out of the relationship.

Responding to Sporah's question about his ideal woman, Navio said: "I look out for drive and ambition. If you are not scared of working hard and pushing yourself, then you are definitely the woman for me."

On beauty, he said: "It's one thing if you look good on my arm but if I can't live with you or if you are a crazy person, then how do we live together? A lot of what women put out is from the inside as well."

Well, there you have it!
