Uganda: Miss Uganda to Play At FNL

After a break last Friday because the host YMCA were holding their graduation ceremony, Friday NiteLites is back tonight with Miss Uganda Phiona Bizzu on the court.

Bizzu is expected to step on the basketball court to show her ball skills. And we might be in for a good show because she ably represented Uganda - in the Sports category at Miss World in China. She may not have won the category but at least she managed to tie with Miss Sweden, Sanna Jinnedal in the penalty shootout.

We, therefore, hope this will translate into three-points every time she steps up. Miss Uganda will play alongside Isaac Lugude's Team LK4. She is the dangerous substitute taking The Hostel's Helen Lukoma's slot who was the guest player the previous Friday.

Actually the actress and singer spent the bigger part of the night ducking whenever the ball was passed to her. She looked lost. Nevertheless, one of the night's highlights was her brave moment when she made a basket long after the buzzer, drawing applause from the fans.

The night will open with Team Blick taking on Team Legends and close with Team Malinga against Team Flirsh. The biggest games could turn out to be Team Kasewu playing Team Enabu and Miss Uganda's Team LK4 taking on Team Amoding.

Fans should expect surprise performances and goodies from Rwenzori mineral water, Samsung, KCB and Castle-Lite.
