WORD HAS IT...

Will Urban Boys get new management?

It has not been an easy ride for these boys. They might have taken home a juicy cheque of Rwf24m in 2016 after winning the Primus Guma-Guma Super Star competition; however, they’ve been on a bumpy road since.

Most notably was Safi Madiba’s departure from the group, sparking rumours that the last two members were also heading for a split.

Since leaving their former music label, Super Level, James Manzi, alias Humble Jizzo, and Muhammed Nshimiyimana (Nizzo) have had no management.

However, word has it that talks between the management of Uganda-based music label Kiwundo Entertainment and the duo are underway.

The music label, which presently works with different artistes like Rabadaba, Sheebah, and Vampino, has already signed local musicians Naason and Diplomate.

They are also said to have had talks with other Rwandan musicians, including Bruce Melody and Charly na Nina, who recently split with their manager Alex Muyoboke. However, no deal has been officially announced yet.

Ali Kiba to pocket KES9m for wedding

Tanzanian Bongo star Ali Kiba will pocket up to KES9 million when he finally says ‘I do’ to his girlfriend Amina Rikesh Khaleef from Mombasa.

The musician kept information about his nuptials under wraps to respect his contract with Azam TV that is said to have exclusive rights to air the event.

It is understood that in return, Kiba, who last performed in Kigali on New Year’s East African Party 2018,  will pocket a sum of KES9m (Rwf76 million).

His wedding is set to attract a number of bigwigs in East Africa, including Tanzanian actress Esha Buheti, former Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, among others.

Ali Kiba and Amina will have two weddings, a Swahili wedding in Mombasa and another in Dar es Salaam next week with Azam airing both events live.

The Ben admits to bleaching his skin, wants to go back to normal

For quite some time now, the public has been throwing shade at US-based Rwandan singer for appearing to have bleached his skin. The singer, however, refuted the claims repeatedly.

But a few days ago, The Ben, during an interview, said that his skin was in fact bleached but that it wasn’t his intention.

He said that when he went to the US, he started using lotions and creams which he didn’t imagine would have an effect on his skin tone. Bad idea.

We are told that the Habibi hitmaker is currently looking for a dermatologist to help him get his skin back to normal.

We are yet to find out if the singer is struggling with any solid effects of skin bleaching.

Zari abandons Islam faith

Ugandan socialite Zari, who early this year dumped singing lover, Diamond Platnumz, seems to find no peace. Her latest twist, we are told, is to turn to Jesus Christ by accepting Him as her personal saviour.

The mother of 5 is said to be currently fighting a silent war with family members who do not consent to her latest conversion.

In the recent past she has been sighted in church.
