Did you know that Nambi used to make the costumes for the two groups where she belonged i.e Obsessions and HB Toxic? Everyone thought her bag of talent had run dry when the two Girl groups faded before the face of the Ugandan Music industry but it was her renaissance and chance to focus on what her minds do better. That’s the moment when Fashion became her daily song, meal and life.

With the passion and experience she held at heart, the reception of Nambi Clothing Line was one with unique positivity. While some brands were forever upcoming after years in the industry, Nambi Clothing line shot all the way up and here it is set to launch Nambi Clothing and Textiles Co in an only by invite cocktail party at One Ten studios on Seventh street industrial area.

When asked about what new thing her online shop is going to offer to Ugandan fashion freaks, she had this to say

“Look at your Tshirt, we all have different ways how to wear it and that’s what we shall be offering. Daily tips on how to keep trendy and details and directions on where to get the latest designs:”

One may wonder why she is trying to have a one time swallow of this big yummy mango by switching the brand name from Nambi Clothing line to Nambi clothing textiles. Yes I was also wondering if she purchased shares in Nytil but maybe it’s something close to that.

“Its going to be called a textile company because we more than cloths. We shall be taking orders from corporations like hotels  and individuals  to design uniforms, blankets, duvets, bed sheets, pillow cases, curtains, decorating material, fabrics and  shoes. The Online platform will also provide for replicating of designs on customer’s orders” Nambi expounded

Brenda Maraka, Abbas Kaijuka, Martha Jabo and Brenda Nambi herself will showcase on the run way what they’ve been up to acting busy with the sewing machines.

In summary, will celebrate the rich African culture,style and taste of different local and international ethnicities.Fashion Poster2-01

Veteran Journalist, news paper columnist and political commentator, analyst has decided to sting Bobi Wine again in his critical analysis on his facebook page this afternoon.

In a post Titled ‘Lessons from Bobi Wine’s success to his supporters and admirers’, Andrew Mwenda labels Bobi Wine as a filthy rich young successful musician and business man who boards an expensive KLM business class flight with a suit case worth 4.9 million US Dollars while pretending to be fighting for the fellow poor youths in Uganda.

Andrew Mwenda went ahead to assure Bobi Wine’s followers of how Bobi is misleading them into thinking that they can only get rich and successful through Government handouts yet he himself didn’t need them to get where he is!

On September 17th, Andrew Mwenda authored another article ‘Bobi Wine’s international media embarrassment’ where he slapped Bobi Wine for holding no Vision goals for Uganda yet he is eyeing presidency something Bobi Wine has never mentioned in all his media appearances!

Lessons from Bobi Wine’s success to his supporters and admirers

By Andrew M. Mwenda

Below is a picture of Bobi Wine carrying a $1,300 Louis Vuitton bag about to board KLM’s business class (probably given the sign “sky priority” behind him) to Uganda to fight for the poor.

If President Yoweri Museveni has stifled Ugandans from prospering, how did Bobi Wine make so much money from his music talent to live in a castle on seven acres of land, drive expensive cars and carry luxury bags?

The lesson for his supporters and admirer is simple but fundamental: if someone in Uganda is talented with marketable skills and invests their income wisely they will prosper. To claim that Ugandans are poor because of government is wrong. It takes away personal responsibility to develop marketable talents and skills.

Bobi Wine’s success makes it clear that the policy environment in Uganda creates opportunities for the talented and skilled to succeed in whatever they try. Those online complaining about government not making them rich are holding a dysfunctional ideology and mentality.

Governments do not make people rich. Possession of talents and marketable skills does the trick. The best government can do for its citizens is to create an enabling environment for individual talent to be exploited.

Bobi Wine’s success in music and in business, like the success of so many other Ugandans in other fields of endeavor, is evidence that Uganda has the enabling environment for individual success.

Therefore instead of telling his supporters and admirers that they are poor because of government and need welfare handouts, he should be telling them how they can use their talents productively for their own individual success.

According to the Sponsorship terms and conditions of the 10 year contract with Star Times TV Uganda, no Football Club under FUFA is expected to get sponsorship from any competitors in the digital TV service providers space like DSTV, GOTV, AZAM TV and others.

The Turning point ofg the deal has aarived where Express Football Club which has always been sponsored by DSTV has cracked a deal with GOTV as their next sponsors! On hearing this breach of the Star Times TV contract , Star Times threatened to terminate the 10 yaer contract with Fufa

As per Counsel Kiryowa Kiwanuka’s level of sports understanding, Star Times Tv sponsoring FUFA totally has nothing to do with the sponsorship arrangements in the private Football clubs registered under FUFA. He further clarified that from the last season, FUFA was sponsored by Azam TV yet Express Fc had DSTV as their club sponsor which had no impact on FUFA’s contract with Azam Tv.

As Star Times threatens to terminate the contract in its toddler stages of growth, this will mean that FUFA President Moses Magogo’s office chair will be decorated with thorns and his position will be at risk him being the Star Times Inconsiderate deal negotiator!
