Capital FM is the official radio partner of the 2017 Abryans Style and Fashion Awards 2017.
Wordsmiths from the golden literary eon coined the notion that; ‘class gravitates towards class.’ And they were right. Because indeed, with affluence comes pride. Such was the case when Uganda’s finest English Speaking radio station, Capital FM (on frequency 91.3,) together with its sister radio, Beat FM, joined the list of sponsors at the forthcoming Abryanz and Style Fashion Awards (ASFAS.)
During a mini press brief about the partnership on Thursday, Capital FM General Manager Peter Mungoma referred to the ASFA’s as a phenomenal venture.
“We are excited to be part of a ceremony that attracts a youthful audience. The ASFAS resonate with our audience, the youthful population that loves style, fashion and flamboyance. We will thus use this opportunity to help the continent celebrate the individuals that have flourished in the different institutes of fashion,” relayed an ecstatic Peter Mungoma.
The mini press brief that took place at the Capital FM premises at Kisementi also had celebrated TV and radio presenter Katongole Omutongole, currently of Beat FM, relay his excitement about the new partnership.
“Beat FM is undoubtedly the best Luganda speaking radio station in the country right now. And even when our audience is not exactly the type you’d call fashion savvy, they are excited and willing to learn about trends. They will be excited to learn about fashion and be in an environment full of people that exude such oomph. It is an opportunity we won’t take for granted,” explained Katongole.
Capital Fm joins a list of sponsors like Ciroc Premium Vodka, NTV, , KCCA, Bell Jamz, Uganda Police, Pemba Sports Africa, Sky Beach Freedom City, Fenon Events, Joram Model Management, MuleyiPr that are supporting the process of organization of the forthcoming Abryanz Style and Fashion awards that are due for 8th December 2017.

There is no doubt the Abryans style and fashion awards are quickly becoming a fashion event to watch out for every December. The stakes are rising each new time the awards happen. The the organizers of this event are working hard to pull it off every season. Compared to the previous two I have attended, it just keeps getting better. Here are just a few things my eyes didn’t skip at the event:
Two of the Capital FM presenters presented Awards:
FlaviaTumusiime, the AM-PM show presenter and Rahma Mbabazi Lucky, presented awards. Did some few members have an issue with Lucky’s dress? Yes. She had a perfect response for them.
Time! time! time!
Until 10 pm the actual ASFAs had not started happening, we live in a city where all event of that nature should be done by mid night. Starting and event with more than ten categories to award at 10 doesn’t add up. Or did you take advantage of the Nankulu being in the building?
Every girl wanted to look their best;
Finding a less busy hair dresser and makeup artist by Friday mid-day was close to impossible. All uptown hair dressers were busy making girls achieve “The Look”. All salons and dress sellers around town should thank God for Abryans Ahumuza. They have surely smitten moneys out of this one. Perhaps the best time to have a hair dresser for a boyfriend the girls know what I mean.
We couldn’t have imported a pair of MCs to just do what those guys did? I am not trying to be racist or nationalist… but that pair was wrong. I just thought scripting for such an event is not for us yet. Both individuals are people full of life and you would imagine if they were free styling it would be a lot better. Oh my God! They made the whole scripting business look so wrong. And what did Fenon do to add insult on injury, as soon as they came on stage, the mics went off.
We have come from so far to get here. Honestly, I think we are getting better and better each day. The dressing is improving, so is the whole red carpet set up at the venue. Thanks to the organizers, Hollywood Looks closer these days.
The beach wear show case hullabaloo:
Oh! So one designer was showing off her creativity with her creation; the crocheted bikinis. The Bikinis looked for fun and colorful. What perfect bodies need for those beach outings? But the reaction on social media, Huh! God save the models. Not so many people wanted to understand the concept as the moralists on social media quickly jumped unto their pages to bash the models.
