Studying in the diaspora is not uncommon for Ugandans lately, and the summer holidays are more than just holidays for the likes of Yvette Ninkugizamukama, who brave through foreign weather and culture; to make their academic dreams come true. And what other place is better to forget about hard medical course units and let your hair down, than home?
Ninku, as some prefer to call her, is surely one of her kind. As many that get to taste Europe, just come back with obnoxious, whiny attitudes about how Uganda isn’t as good. The 21 year old medic still maintains that there’s “No place like home.”
With her trademark exuberant laugh, eyes that exude royalty and a smile that one might call infectious, Yvette shares her positive vibes on her Instagram via @ninkugizamukama_ and her wit on twitter via @yvette_ninku.
“I’m just here for a good time, not a long time”, says the young lady, and this should definitely be the motto for y’all pulsers out there.
Tarrus Riley being the guest artist at Swangz All Star Concert, he arrived in the country 3 days to the concert in a surprise move to shoot the music video of his song titled “Uganda”. Most people expected a collaboration with a Swangz signed artist given it is also a record label but that wasn’t so as Tarrus featured on the track alone.
The song has Tarrus put in a few lines in Luganda a language widely spoken in Uganda. He sings about Uganda while relating it to a very charming girl. The video was done mainly in Jinja at the Nile river and in a market place setting. The video also has some culture embedded in it with some glimpses of the kiganda traditional dance.
The audio was produced by Nessim and Video directed by Swangz Avenue’s Marvin Musoke.
