Uganda: Take 5 - Samuel Mwebesa, AKA MS Ray

Samuel Mwebesa, aka MS Ray, is a Mbarara-based artiste and a research assistant with the ministry of Defence in Arua.

His song Portable is about a slender girl whom he would like to date. He fielded five questions with Alon Mwesigwa.

At 21, how do you manage to keep ladies at bay so that they don't disrupt you?

Oh ladies! I spend a lot of time doing research and composing my songs; so, they don't have much space. I sometimes lie to them that I am engaged, which reduces their pressure on me.

Do you have a girlfriend?

No, and I am not searching because I feel like I still have many missions to accomplish.

What mistake have you ever done when you were with a girl?

Hahahaha, that's crazy. Of course, groping but it was not exaggerated.

And how did she respond?

Oh, it depends [on the girl], but please don't push me far into that.

Lastly, tell me about the kind of girl you would like to get.

Portable, slender, God-fearing and intelligent; at least with such features and qualities I can manage.
