Meet Flavia

91.3 Capital FM’s Flavia Tumusiime and Sam Ayo on the Martyrs’ Day holiday, June 3, 2015, after a fight in the studio.

The “fight” began shortly after the 11:00 a.m. news when Sam started complaining live on air that Flavia had been snapping her fingers and trying to distract him as he was reading the news.

She in turn asked why he had come late into the studio for the news and interrupted her show, “AM to PM”.

What to the listeners sounded like an angry exchange of words that went on for a minute was, in fact, just another of the friendly dramas that usually take place between them on air.

Ayo also presents the Saturday afternoon sports talk show “The Score” on Capital FM.

Three weeks later, June 29, 2015, she made her debut as a news anchor at NTV (pictured here adjusting her ear piece during a break that first day.)

An all-round media personality — on stage, on radio, on TV, online and who seems to permanently trend on social media — she knows what to say, how to say it, when to say it and where to say it in such a way that always triggers off a blaze of gossip, speculation, amusement and chatter among the Ugandan online community and her army of fans.

Apass: I am sorry Flavia.

An apology doesn’t mean that you were wrong, or the other person was right. It means that your relationship is more valuable than your ego. Could this be the school of thought where Apass has graduated? About half an hour ago, the “Memories” singer has made a public apology to Flavia Tumusiime.

[Tweet ““I am sorry Tumusiime Flavia. i honestly don’t want us to drown in this drama.” Apass”]

“I am human and when we make mistakes we have to make triple effort to fix it.” One can imagine His voice was soft, his tone not dismayed or disappointed, but disillusioned. The apology was there, ready to come out— in this situation there is little that I can do but, I am sorry Tumusiime Flavia. Sorry for my actions.

It was as if something in him snapped. Apass advanced on social media(Facebook), backing his pride against the wall, not touching bits of his ego and withholding nothing, accepted full responsibility for his actions.

[Tweet “I take responsibility for my mistake because i am in wrong and I want you to feel happy- Apass”]

Why? Apass doesn’t have to apologize, may be for using social media, according to a comment on Facebook. Alexander is defined as a gentleman with discipline and down to earth as per the same mention. People have associated with this declaration admitting to being crazy about people they admire and loved.

Tomorrow Apass will be on #TheOverDrive show hosted by Lucky from 3pm. We hope he can tell the story.

Uganda’s fashion lovers were treated to a celebration at the Abryans Fashion and style awards on Saturday at the Kampala Serena hotel.

The well attended event saw our very own Flavia Tumusiime bag an award for best dressed female media personality of the year.

The organization at this year’s  ASFAs no doubt gave us the Ugandan version of life on any Holly Wood  red carpets we watch on Western TV.

Gaetano had the honors to Emcee along side Kenyan, Vera at the event.


A number of entertainers across Africa turned up for the event to entertain and present awards . It was evident that after Nigeria’s former BBA star Tayo was sandwiched by Ugandan ladies it was inevitable for him for forge a song asap.


It looks like Former Miss Uganda Stella was loved in the house and yes, much more by Idris.  Their BBA house romance was one people who followed the previous season can’t ignore. And seeing Idris play gentle man on that that red carpet, brought back lots of memories.

At the sight and eloquence of Princess Bagaya who was accepting the award of Lifetime Style & Fashion Icon Achievement Award, many girls must have changed their role models. We must confess this lady has aged as gracefully as she sounds.


A number of entertainers put up a great show and there in was Uganda’s self proclaimed Big size, Bebe Cool, Kenya’s gorgeous voices, Sauti Sol, Nigeria’s Banky W  and of cause trust Tayo to sing a godly song with half naked queens dancers.
