“You are A Disgrace”- Goodlyfe Terminates Association With Bryan White

Chano8 - Thu, 02/22/2018 - 17:10
  • “You’re a disgrace to our brand. Stay far away from us”  Goodlfye management told self proclaimed tycoon Brian White as they sent Weasel on leave for two months in the USA

Through their Radio and Weasel Facebook page , Goodlyfe has terminated their working relationship with socialite and self proclaimed tycoon Bryan White citing disrespect. The label accused the socialite of trying to capitalise on the death of Weasel’s singing partner, Radio for fame. Weasel has thus been granted a two-month retreat in USA to recuperate.

A short video went viral allover social media as Bryan White was holding the microphone and yelling out Weasel’s name, calling him to come back as he also warned in a way threatening that he owns shares in the Goodlyfe Duo.

Using their facebook page, Goodlyfe crew has posted an official statement disassociating themselves with White Bryan

“No Company Member should ever leave the podium when am still speaking”, and by Company Bryan White meant the Goodlyfe Company. hence forcing the Goodlyfe Management to now come out and distance themselves from Bryan White

“Our agenda as a brand is to RESPECT and PARTNER with fellow Artistes, Business people and Entities with an agenda of developing one another as we build our great nation, Uganda. Unfortunately, this has not been met with our current client Brian White Foundation.

Its a shame to our brand and our other business partners that believe in us when a client ( Bryan White ) doesn’t accord us RESPECT to the brand in an equal measure even after running to us to use weasel on his brand just during our trying moment.

Its from this that we halt any business dealing or community social responsibility that we have been engaging in with its founder and the foundation as a whole with immediate effect.

Weasel will be currently going on a retreat to USA for two months to freshen up as he recovers from the loss of his dear brother and friend Mowzey RADIO that passed on early this month. #Tokyayitaba Loading”

MC Dagy Nyce The Final Replacement For Douglas Lwanga

Chano8 - Thu, 02/22/2018 - 16:13

After the untimely resignation of Douglas Lwanga a few weeks back from NTV’s ‘NTV The Beat’ show, the station has of late been searching for the perfect replacement.

They had Mc Esco standing in at some point, Sheila Gashumba and Crysto Panda as well. But it looked like no one came close to Douglas who switched to NBS TV. NTV then resorted to the viewers by advertising for that position and after days of screening from the various clips applicants sent it, it seems no one passed.

It is on this note that the Kampala Serena Hotel based station decided to trust Dagy Nyce to that position.

Morning Fam, Today i have been tasked to fill the boots of the BIGMAN himself, my brother @douglaslwanga Douglas UG Ntv Uganda To guest host for THE BEAT on NTV. Am honored and humbled to be the man to take on your LEGACY BROLets keep it burning. We start TODAY…!!!” Dagy Nyce posted.

VIDEO: More Embarrassment For Spice Diana As Her Wig Falls Off On Live TV

Chano8 - Thu, 02/22/2018 - 15:33

As people are still throwing jibes at and bashing singer Spice Diana over a mistake she made while on an interview on NTV’s ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ show, another trending video of the singer whose wig is seen falling off her head on another live TV show is making rounds on social media. 

In the first video at NTV, Spice confused the country when the host asked her to share about her education background and the points she attained in her A Level exams. To our surprise, she mentioned 32 which was way higher than the the maximum number of points one can attain at that level which is 20.

That left aside, while free styling on BBS TV last night, Spice Diana got embarrassed when in the middle of her dance move which was an accompaniment to her freestyle session when her wig fell off the head and fell on the floor. Instead of continuing with the freestyle, she instead bent down to pick it up as a way of consolation. This could be Spice Diana’s season of embarrassments.

Social media is now of fire with people making more fun of the ‘Onsanula’ singer who recently had a successful concert at the Namasuba based Front Page Hotel with extra shows at Georgina Gardens and Lido Beach

Like they say, positive and negative publicity is all good  to the artistes as days after the saying she got 32 points at A Level, Spice went and bought Uganda Cranes jerseys and printed 32 at their backs and she promised to also release a song dubbed 32.

Chano8 - Thu, 02/22/2018 - 12:41

According to the look of things, Singer Eddy Kenzo has been taken over by fame. He has been involved in several verbal exchanges with fellow musicians. However, he claims musicians he has attacked always begin the fight.

The latest fight the singer is involved in is with Kadongo Kamu singer Abdul Mulaasi. Over the weekend, the two have been involved in a bitter verbal exchange that has escalated to the extent of branding each other ‘failed musicians’.

Over the weekend, the Big Talent boss Edirisa Musuuza had a concert in Lyantonde town where the Kadongo Kamu star Abdul Mulaasi was at the same location with each fighting to have a big gathering.

It has also been reported that the “Farm” hit-maker is in a bitter relationship after the Big Talent camp reportedly plotted to decline his show while in Lyatonde. According to sources, it is believed that, in all the shows that were held in Lyatonde, Abdul Mulaasi had a higher capacity as compared to singer Eddy Kenzo’s.

Abdul Mulaasi made an appearance at David Lutalo’s concert earlier this year  

A few days back, singer Eddy Kenzo signed another fresh artiste to his label called New York. The Dancehall singer, New York has earned himself a slot to be part of the group. The signing and unveiling happened on Monday at Big Talent head offices in Makindye along Salama road.

This happened after the big talent boss had also signed a female singer called Pia Pounds which raised eyebrows of his loyal fans.

New York has released songs such as “Nakwatamu”, “Anjagala”  Ft King Saha that received massive reception.
