Bobi says he was urged by his late father to keep his marriage with the Barbie fresh on a daily basis as it would be the only way to keep him resting in peace.
“Son, this ring means a commitment and promise to LOVE someone’s daughter the same way that I have LOVED you. I know you have already loved her for 10years but with this ring, it’s a covenant not only between you and her but between our two families and our communities. If you keep this commitment and promise, I will sleep well even in my grave“, said my father on 27th August 2011 in the dressing room.
Dear Barbie Kyagulanyi, now you know that I LOVE YOU not only on my behalf but on behalf of my parents and all my people. It’s been 19years and you’re still the one that makes my world go around.
Happy anniversary my love.

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic that saw the entertainment industry crippled, the world’s most awarded premium vodka, Smirnoff partnered with NTV to give viewers an ultimate dance party experience dubbed the NTV Dance Party.
The show was formed to encourage people to keep up the weekend outgoing spirit, however, this time partying while staying safely at home during the lockdown.
From Lynda Ddane’s dazzling fashion sense to the electrifying music played by Guvnor deejays, Baby Love and Mark Rebel to the energy of presenters Crysto Panda and Esco Mc and the signature Smirnoff cocktail recipes, viewers were taken on an entertainment journey at a time when everything had shut down and the world was a sad and gloomy place, every single Saturday.
NTV Dance party also held a series of fun games like the, ‘dress up to go nowhere,’ where viewers were given an opportunity to dress up in their favorite outfits and chill with friends and family whilst enjoying a Smirnoff. The best dressed viewers won prizes like the Smirnoff starter packs that included a crate of Smirnoff, two bottles of vodka, a bar set up, a mixologist and a DJ delivered at the winner’s doorstep for enjoyment.

“Smirnoff is a brand that recognizes the importance of adapting as things change in society and is committed to doing the right thing and the NTV Dance Party is the perfect choice to stay connected with family, friends while hanging out from home,” said Nakiyaga.
Several artistes are lined up to perform during the show and there are lots of Smirnoff goodies to be won by viewers.
Nearly three years ago, a US-based Ugandan Ham Serunjogi and a Ghanaian colleague Maijid Moujaled launched a cross-border money transfer platform called Chipper Cash.
To the creators of the platform, the purpose was to ease money transfers by enabling sending and receiving money locally at zero cost, while offering instant settlement and the lowest cross-boarder rates.
The duo wanted to create a feasible solution to the blocks associated with exchanging money especially in Africa and the app has since been launched in Nigeria, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa as well as Uganda.
And on Wednesday, April 21, the largest mobile cross-border money transfer platform on the continent unveiled NTV News Anchor Faridah Nakazibwe as a brand influencer.
“I’m honoured to be working with Chipper Cash. I have worked with a number of brands and one thing known about me is that I’m a natural influencer and I’m happy to bring on board what I know to Chipper Cash,” Nakazibwe said.
Last week, Chipper Cash was launched in the United Kingdom and now people in the UK can send money back to Uganda and get 15% instant cashback for the sender and 5% for the receiver. Each Ugandan who downloads the app and shares their referral link to a person in the UK (friend or family) gets UGX50,000 as a referral bonus when the UK person downloads the app, verifies their account, and sends £20 to any Chipper Cash user in Uganda.
Dan Tumuramye, the Country Manager of Chipper Cash, says Nakazibwe fits the credentials of a brand influencer they needed.
“We wanted to bring on a TV/Media personality on board. We feel Faridah is a right fit for our target market,” said Tumuramye.
The “Sili Muyembe” singer then turned emotional and, in disbelief, shied away from the cameras. She couldn’t stand the surprise that her lovely in-laws showed her.
After a few moments, the joyous singer took to her social media platforms and shared the update with her fans as she thanked her in-laws and her mother-in-law for loving her.
When I prayed for family…..I didn’t know what Allah had in stock for me. As always…I thought I was traveling with my husband and our Aamaal…..Had no idea that my sweet husband and wonderful inlaws had planned to travel with us for my birthday gateaway.
Everyone starting with my awesome Nazaala… My beautiful sister’s in-law plus their little children. Ya Allah, I’m forever grateful.
