Singer Qute Kaye takes burdens to the Lord

Faded Ugandan musician Qute Kaye has been reborn.

Famous for his single, “Ginkese”, Kaye has decided to turn away from his sinful ways and give his life to Jesus Christ.

He made the life-changing decision on Thursday as he sought salvation at renowned Pastor Robert Kayanja’s church, Rubaga Miracle Centre.

This happened at the ongoing crusade by Pr. Kayanja dubbed “77 Days of Glory”.

The singer revealed that his hunger for fame and money had led him to do despicable things including visiting shrines and witch doctors where he made sacrifices.

However, he has had enough of that life and is now seeking new beginnings.

My comment about Beyonce not being a good singer was misunderstood ~Santana

“I would like to clarify a comment that was reported when I was doing an interview for some upcoming shows in Australia & New Zealand,” he says.

Adding, “My intent was to congratulate Adele on her amazing night at the Grammies. My comment about Beyonce was regretfully taken out of context. I have the utmost respect for her as an artist and a person. She deserves all the accolades that come her way. I wish Beyonce and her family all the best. Carlos”

While some commenters agree with his stance or don’t feel he needed to respond to the interview, others think he should have addressed what was said about Beyonce’s singing abilities.

“Adele and Beyoncé have very different singing styles but to say that Beyoncé is not a singer is very disrespectful to her and all of the contributions that she has made to music,” said a Catherine White Walker. “Even if you believe the Grammys got it right no need to disrespect a fellow artist.”

Another person noted, “You’re still missing the point. Initially you denigrated and dismissed Beyoncé’s extraordinary vocal abilities, and reduced her as something to look at. As though her exceptional performance ability is an ‘instead of’ rather than ‘as well as’.”

No word from Adele or Beyonce’s camps.

If you’re wondering what that faint sound is, it’s the Beyhive attacking rock legend Carlos Santana for bold comments he made about Beyoncé’s singing abilities.

When asked by The New Zealand Herald why Adele won Best Song, Record and Album of the Year for 25 over Beyoncé’s Lemonade at the Grammys on Sunday, the Mexican-American guitarist concluded it’s about vocal prowess.

“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing,” Santana said. “With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modeling kind of music — music to model a dress — she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her.”

“Adele can sing, sing. She doesn’t bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there and she just stood there and sang the song and that’s it, and this is why she wins,” Santana, who has won 10 Grammy awards, added.

 

As Twitter noted during the show, there are many singers—Beyonce included—who can out-sing Adele. There is also an elevated experience concertgoers expect when attending shows. The fact that Adele deviates from the status quo is great, be doesn’t warrant accolades over someone who puts in the extra effort to deliver, time after time.

Here’s a thought. Carlos, it’s probably not about semantics and vocal ability. It’s about old-fashioned racism. And it’d be great if a fellow person of color confronted that and stop placating for White approval.

Swangz avenue and Irene Ntale have parted company by mutual consent. We would like to bring to record our thanks to Irene Ntale for the hard work, integrity and honesty she put forward during our four years of work.

All at Swangz thank Irene for her immense contribution since we signed her in March of 2013.

Her numerous awards and numerous chat topping hits in just 4 years make Irene the most successful female artist in our 9 year history. Irene asked to leave the label and we believe it is in the best interests of both parties.

Swangz wishes to make clear Irene leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Swangz. Her legacy at Swangz and the country at large has long been guaranteed and she will always be warmly received.

Song bird Cindy could be preggars

Last year, Singer Cindy Sanyu started making trips all over East Africa.  She claimed, she was on her music tour trying to sell her music and move her career.

In the process, news broke out that she had hooked up a new man and was ready to move on. She denied the rumours and went silent.

Over the weekend she leaked a picture on her social media.

In the picture, clearly, it shows how she has piled on weight and when her fans provoked her to explain the source of the weight gain, Cindy responded with answers that clearly insinuated that she is expecting.

On her twitter page, she puts it “Moving on and expecting new life” Cindy wrote.

From her look now, you wouldn’t call her skinny or small. She has flesh on her, which never used to be the case. Her fans now think Cindy could have served the leg to some ruthless guy who never hesitated to plant a live seed in her.

In brief telephone interview with Cindy, she assures us to mind our business and made it clear to us that she an adult and is free to enjoy sex.

However, the singer hasn’t stopped making tours and performances across the country, as the speculations continue to make rounds.

Birth mother to one of Angelina Jolie’s adopted children wants contact with her daughter

The natural mother of Angelina Jolie’s adopted Ethiopian daughter Zahara has made a heartfelt plea to the superstar actress telling her: ‘Please just let me talk to my daughter’.

Poverty stricken Mentewab Dawit Lebiso told Daily Mail Online she is desperate to be part of her 12-year-old daughter’s life – and called for Jolie to get custody of her daughter in the bitter split with Brad Pitt.

She dreams of one day meeting the girl she gave up as a tiny infant – but said she would settle for the chance to simply hear her voice.

‘I just want her to know that I am alive and here and long to be able to speak with her. I do not want my daughter back but just to be in contact with her and be able to call her up and talk with her,’ said Mentewab, who ekes out a living in Ethiopia.

Mentewab is the first to admit that the Jolie-Pitts have given her daughter everything she could wish for, adding: ‘Angelina has been more of a mother to her than I have ever been. She has been with her since she was a baby, but that does not mean I do not miss her.

But she adds: ‘I miss her all the time. I think about her every day and long to hear her voice or see her face.I know when she has a birthday but I am sad because I can’t celebrate it with her. I would so much want to celebrate with her on her birthday and other special days.

Ali Kiba might have scooped himself a Ugandan bae

Latest information we have is that AliKiba and this girl named Sharon Fabrinsnky are an item…and there’s proof to that.

Recently, a cozy photo of the two emerged online, sending tongues wagging on whether the two could actually be banging.

In the photo, the ‘Aje’ hit maker was seen shirtless in what seemed like a Hotel, while Sharon on the other hand, was clad in a simple dress.

By mere fact that Alikiba was shirtless, various snoops think he’s already enjoying the central fruits of Sharon who is a fast raising actress based in Kenya.

The insanely hot, dimpled and light skinned Sharon seems to be high in the clouds, as she now frequently litters her social media handles with photos and videos of Ali Kiba.
