Beef and fights seem to have no end in Uganda's showbiz. The latest news that have landed on showbizxklusivs desk indicate that Pearl's lead singer Jose Chameleone beat up dance hall artiste Vamposs yesterday. The reason being Vamposs refused to worship Chameleone, a thing that never went well with the Leon Island point-man ending in a showdown.  The details about the fight have been scanty but the war is likely to continue as Swangz Avenue artistes have promised to revenge against the Leon Island boss. Vamposs brother Maurice Kirya was shocked at what Chameleone did to his brother. 'I was blind but now i see, with blows to his face, he wondered why he was attacked,and the answer was,because he did not worship the Dr. Joseph chameleon! i hope my brother vamposs recovers from the injuries and dis figured face, i love his music, but chameleon has attacked many, and is protected by all of us. We have ...all failed to lead as a good example to the coming generation! said Maurice Kirya. And the war could get uglier if the Swangz avenue keep their word to revenge.  ''You shall fight the whole swangz and friends, beat everyone you find, but trust me Vampino was the last, he's the wakeup call. You pressed the wrong button, played a bad card. We got you another title coming.The man u beat is like the swangz ambasoder. he too got a commandin that follow him, now we are all out,' said Viboyo when he called on us.

Following twin bomb blasts at Kyadondo rugby club and Ethiopian village in Kansaga that claimed over 80 lives in Kampala last Sunday, several concerts have been cancelled as more threats still come in.

All the above mentioned concerts have been postponed till the country becomes safe ounce again.
According to security enforcers in the pearl, hang outs and gathering places which are the main targets have to be closed by at least 10pm to prevent those responsible for last week’s attacks get the opportunity of repeating the same callous act.
“Ugandans have to be vigilant as the current situation is threatening. For security purposes, most of the concerts have been cancelled until the situation is back to normal.” Kayihura said.
Ragga Dee has pushed his concert on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th of December so as to mourn with those who lost their beloved ones. The venues, curtain raisers, sponsors and charges still remain the same for his shows. 
“On arrival at the airport from my European tour, I was welcomed with the sad news about last Sunday’s blasts and immediately, I postponed my concert to December.” Ragga Dee said.


Looks like Lady Jay Dee is taking her music career a notch higher. Well ,many of her fans who've watched her play at the famous Zhong hua gardens in Dar es Salaam will be shocked to hear this. This Sunday  (18/07/2010) the singer will perform at a church in Dar es salaam. 'I will perform at the Officers mess oysterbay at the Day of singing at the Seventh Day church in Kinondoni. I will be there singing,'she wrote on her blog. This will be a totally different crowd and we wonder whether she'll be singing gospel..

Veteran politician and Peoples Progressive Party president Jaberi Bidandi Ssali, is worried about the safety of his son Bebe Cool.  Bidandi said that he wanted the Government to provide more security for the singer.
“When I look at things that have happened to my son since the start of the year, I cannot help but wonder what is really going on. I want the Government to provide meaningful and maximum security for my son,” demanded Bidandi. Bebe Cool was shot at in January at Efendy’s bar & resturant. Then he narrowly survived death when the car in which he was travelling with his wife, Zuena, overturned. Last month, Bebe Cool, who moves with crutches or in a wheel chair, was involved in a brawl in Sweden and last Sunday, he survived death by a whisker at Kyadondo Rugby Club, where two bombs went off during the World Cup final. It is probably against this background that Bidandi feels his son needs extra protection against this streak of bad luck.

Last year,the awards chief was embroiled in a battle of words with artistes as she could not give the Kshs. 5000 as prize money to award winners.

King of the street deejaying Bunduki could not resist what he called a golden offer at a Mombasa club. Bunduki who until end of June was resident DJ at Club Lambada has left the club. The celebrated decks man was apparently poached by neighboring beach club to be DJ cum events manager. Sources say the deal was too good and he went ahead to celebrate his move with a toss of champagne.

Taking the Word of God in hip hop rhymes to World is the mission of 25 year old Aggrey Kaka Meshack better known as Bantu. The award winning gospel rapper is still on a mission incomplete; to see many youths turn to Christ.

Who exactly is Bantu?
Bantu is a young, focused,, talented and gifted gospel artist who is totally inspired by the great I AM.

How has your musical journey been?
It has been challenging indeed. Too many times we pray for ease, but that’s a prayer seldom met. W hat we need to do is pray for roots that reach deep into the eternal so when the rain falls and the wind blows, we wont be swept asunder, that’s what has been my stand which has seen me through.

What's your music style?
I do gospel hip-hop, but have also ventured in other genres of music as well. I have done a ‘bounce’ track and a zouk single.

Is it easy being a gospel artiste?
It is very challenging. One thing that keeps me going is knowledge that my calling is the most expensive thing in life. There is no calling without suffering and its not about what you can get, but what you live for.

’Kapungala’ has done so well in the gospel scene. Have you been tempted to change style in-order to make it on radio charts and may be dance floors?
Kapungala is a great style, but in this ministry its not all about getting in charts or taking people to the dance floors, but its simply a matter of inspiring others with the word of God which will change and transform their lives and heal there hurting souls.

Where do you do your music?
I am not based at any particular studio but I’ve recorded most of my songs in coast. ‘Ka Umeokoka’ and my yet to be released single titled ‘Sonko’ which I featured Juliani are some of the songs which I have recorded at Jeddan records. ‘ Bila wasi wasi’  is yet another un-released single which I have featured Danco and Daddy Owen which was produced at Dreamland recording stable produced by Dr. Eddie in Nairobi.

So far, how many albums?
My first album is ready and by God’s grace, the launch should be in December.

Do you ever battle with the devil?
Always...One weapon that God gave us against Satan is prayer and that has seen me out do him. But it all goes down with who your friends are. For wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friends. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.

Before seeing the light, how was your past?
I was no different from the prodigal son. My life was a mess. I used to be a party animal and did all the things for the glory of the devil. I was a player and had many girlfriends, used to drink myself out and had no future. But thanks be to God who picked and washed me by the blood. God had a good plan for my life and He saved me. For a good man knows his past, understands his present and moves towards the future and that’s my principle. Today, my life is a message.

Where do you draw your inspiration?
JESUS....No one in this world can die for me...But Jesus did. He took all the pain, insults and shame for me. I am a Jesus freak.

Are you gifted or talented?
 I think I have double portion; A gift and a talent.

Some gospel artistes claim that when writing a song they were led by the holy spirit. Ever had such an experience?
Yes indeed. You don’t just wake up one morning and just write anything that comes out of your brains. Gospel ministry is a total opposite to the secular industry. Secular industry is all about showbiz, Gospel is pure ministry. Hence we totally depend on the Holy Spirit to guide us write lyrics which will challenge and change someone’s life through God who strengthens us.

 In gospel industry, there are two genres; praise and worship. Where do you fall and why?
Both. Apart from praise, I have also done worship songs with the likes of Kristine Ndela.

How effective has your ministry been?
Very effective I must say. I have almost gone all around the country ministering to massive crowds through my music and has seen thousands of people receiving Christ as there personal savior. I have also ventured in the prison ministry and to be specific Shimo la Tewa prison which I visit after every four months to give Hope to the prisoners and lead them to Jesus. I also do school to school ministry which have seen thousands of students giving there life’s to Christ. I have also taken an initiative and started an entertainment company known as Gospel Rave which will be organizing gospel events and see coast rise to another level ministry wise, since there is not much happening and we have been forced to wait for our Nairobi friends to organize events for us...i believe we can do it...yes we can.

Has showbiz ever affected your music career?
Not really. It has never been showbiz to me...Its pure ministry. It all depends on some ones calling. I was called to win souls not showbiz.

Do you practice your faith?
The ministry I do says it all.

What is your stand on the draft constitution?
Personally, I’m not supporting it thus will vote ‘No’. The rest of the constitution is nice except the abortion clauses which I find totally unacceptable.

How do you escape that kind of public intrusion into your life?
One thing people should know is I am not a celebrity but a minister of God. And the reason I like the intrusion is that it gives me a chance to minister to people. When a person stops me for whatever reasons, I take that as an opportunity to give them the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ and thus win souls in the kingdom of God...Cause that the main aim we are called for.

Are there any specific goals you have that keep you motivated?
To see the Gospel reach in every corner of the world. That has been my cry. That every one should know who the messiah is and that he Died for us to give us an eternal life. My main goal is to see a saved God fearing nation and continent.....That’s what keeps me motivated and I wont stop.

With holiness as a requisite in the faith based ministry, are you still having fun?
 It depends on your definition of fun. My greatest joy in this world is winning souls to the kingdom of GOD. That the greatest fun I have ever wished for and i enjoy it every second of my life.


She is the pearl's hottest and sexiest singer and many men will agree that Desire Luzinda is alluring. Well, after breaking up with her husband software engineer Ken Ntaro last year and being linked to several Ugandan men, the singer has spoken about her relationship status on facebook. Recently,she edited it to 'looking for a relationship'.  However, she has always insisted in press interviews that she is single and not searching.
Well, it would now seem the 'Nkomyewo' singer wants the world to know the truth after all.

ESCOBA babake and his wifey.....and baby gal....keeping it real... Escoba is one of Mombasa's finest artistes.His wife was his dancer....


“I had finished performing during the half-time break and I was seated in the front row enjoying the game. I don’t normally watch my football matches seated in the front row. I always seat at the back. Everyone was happy then all of a sudden…boom!”“I was thrown off my seat. There was silence all over. Before I could recollect my thoughts to find out what exactly was going on, I heard another blast…boom! I immediately knew something was terribly wrong,” says Bebe Cool.
Bebe was the main attraction at Kyadondo Rugby Club where the finals of the 2010 World Cup were being held. It was a reasonable crowd. Before heading down to Kyadondo Rugby Club Bebe had also performed at the MTN World Cup party at Boda Boda restaurant.
“While still at Boda Boda, I received a call from Elvis Ssekyanzi telling me to come down to Kyadondo and perform on stage. My wife suggested that we stay at Boda Boda but Elvis being our friend I decided to drop by, perform and watch the remaining half of the game from there,” says Bebe Cool.
It’s that decision that nearly proved fatal. “I knew it was a bomb blast after the second one went off. I was lying on grass having been thrown off my seat by the fast blast. All around me was blood. I saw a man missing an arm. I was helpless and dazed on the grass with pain. I then felt people pulling me up on my feet. It was my wife and some other people I didn’t know. We were put in a car and left the scene,” says Bebe Cool.

A Nigerian, Adebayo Ogunlesi, has acquired the London Gatwick Airport as the new owner. The Gatwick deal is a £1.455 billion agreement with BAA Airports Limited. Ogunlesi, 56, is the chairman and managing partner, Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), an independent investment fund based in New York City with worldwide stake in infrastructure assets.
According to the report, Ogunlesi, the son of an 86-year old professor of medicine has presided over a great number of sweet deals that made him the envy of his peers abroad even if his forays into the brisk world multi-billion dollars deals are barely talked about in his home country.
GIP will be investing through Ivy Bidco Limited, a limited liability company registered in England, established for the purpose of making the acquisition.
Bidco will pay cash consideration of £1,455 million for the entire share capital of Gatwick Airport Limited on a cash-free, debt-free basis.
 Ogunlesi says the acquisition of Gatwick is a landmark deal for GIP and adds another quality asset to his firm's rapidly expanding portfolio.
He said, "we see significant scope to apply both our strong operational focus and our knowledge of the airports sector to make Gatwick an airport of choice."
 He began stacking up his big deals profile when he joined the top-shelf New York law firm, Cravath, Swain & Moore. It was at the law firm that he jumped at the chance to advise First Boston (which later acquired Credit Suisse in 1997 to form Credit Suisse First Boston or CSFB) on a hugely lucrative Nigerian gas project.
The success of that deal landed him his first big pay move to First Boston. For First Boston, he worked on project finance, brokering deals in which lenders finance assets like oil refineries and mines and are repaid with revenues generated by those enterprises.
Based in New York City and traveling to emerging markets, he built CSFB's project-finance business into the world's best, in part by encouraging corporations and governments to tap public debt markets in addition to commercial lenders.
His teacher while at King's College, Lagos, J. Namme, said that Bayo, as he is fondly called, loves getting things done. Perhaps, the London Gatwick Airport acquisition best underscores his desire to get things done and in the big way too. The Gatwick deal illustrates his global influence in infrastructure assets deals.  Ogunlesi has lived in New York for 20 years and is active in volunteer work. But he also cultivates his ties to Africa. He informally advises the Nigerian government on privatisation. And last summer Manute Bol, former NBA center, visited Ogunlesi in his Park Avenue office, seeking donations for a charitable foundation in former basketball star Manute Bol's homeland, Sudan.Ogunlesi walked Bol around the hallways, introducing him to junior staff. It was just another day in the Bayosphere. Prior to his current role, he was executive vice chairman and chief client officer of Credit Suisse, based in New York. He previously served as a member of Credit Suisse's Executive Board and Management Council and chaired the Chairman's Board. Previously, he was the Global Head of Investment Banking at Credit Suisse. Since joining Credit Suisse in 1983, Ogunlesi has advised clients on strategic transactions and financings in a broad range of industries and has worked on transactions in North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.Ogunlesi attended the prestigious King's College, Lagos. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar Association. He was a lecturer at Harvard Law School and the Yale School.Ogunlesi, whose father was the first Nigerian-born medical professor, studied philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford and then earned law and business degrees from Harvard. In the US, he is known as the Nigerian who clerked for late Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall, who they say was unable to pronounce his name and quickly dubbed him Obeedoogee. Colleagues and friends call him Bayo. This is real swagg.....

They both made it clear that they had separated and we went ahead and wrote about it. But at this rate we are quite doubtful if the Cindy and Mario break-up is real. The two said they separated because of “being too busy for each other.” However, going by recent sightings, Mario and Cindy have quite some good time for each other.
Cindy is a frequent visitor at Mario’s Cayenne bar,  situated near Kabira Country Club in Bukoto. According to an insider at Cayenne, Cindy and Mario still enjoy evenings together at the hangout and at times leave together. “She comes here almost on a daily basis and they’re always together, I don’t think they really separated,” the source added.As if that wasn’t convincing enough,Showbizxklusivs bumped into Cindy and Mario hand in hand at Nakumatt Shopping Mall. There was visibly no sign that the two had issues! Just asking, is Cindy’s break-up real or is it just another stunt?

British star and ex wife to soccer star Cheryl Cole has contracted the potentially deadly disease malaria, according to reports. The X Factor judge and pop star, 27, is said to have been diagnosed after collapsing at a photoshoot over the weekend. It follows a visit she made last month to the east African country of Tanzania.  According to the Daily Mirror, she is receiving treatment at London's private Cromwell hospital, where her friend, dancer Derek Hough, was pictured on Monday.
Also on Monday, Cheryl's publicist confirmed the singer had pulled out of work commitments for the coming days on the advice of doctors, but did not give a reason.  The spokesman said: "Following doctors' advice Cheryl Cole will be cancelling all work commitments for the next week."
Malaria is caused by a parasite called plasmodium, which is transmitted by the bites of infected mosquitos. Symptoms include headaches, fever and vomiting.  If not treated promptly, the disease can become life-threatening by disrupting the blood supply to vital organs.
Cheryl, who also visited east Africa last year when she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief, has been attending auditions for the next series of the ITV1 talent show since last month.
She has also been busy touring as a solo act for the first time, supporting Black Eyed Peas, in recent months.  The star, who earlier this year split from footballer husband Ashley Cole, is scheduled to play high-profile shows at next month's V Festival.
