Many people were left wondering whether Meddie Sentongo was just plain broke or it was just his way of keeping a low profile, given his recent legal woes with former flame Bad Black.
The dude who last year managed to smuggle the title 'tycoon' into his name, recently stopped driving his posh cars and dropped to a Toyota Premio.
Last Sunday he took it down a further notch when he showed up at Havana Beach next to the Mayor's gardens on Entebbe road, riding a Yamaha sport bike.
Considering that the bike has a much lower fuel consumption than a Premio, could the 'tycoon's' pockets be running dry, or is it just another guy showing some love for two wheeled monsters?
Roger Ddungu bounced
People with the title 'president' are feared and respected, until last Friday at Chris Evans' show when Roger Ddungu was pushed and shoved, like he was not the President, Uganda Olympic Committee. When the chaos at New Club Obbligato intensified, bouncers bounded a few people deemed to be causing trouble out of the club, and just like that, the sports boss was shown the exit like a common criminal, as those who recognised him watched in embarrassment.
The emcee, Meddie Nsereko Ssebuliba, tried to save the situation by begging the big man to please return and be seated in the VIP section that befits him. But Meddie's pleas fell on deaf ears as Ddungu refused to return to the show in the heavily congested venue, as some fans even passed out. Ddungu's only consolation should be that MPs Mariam Nalubega and Grace Namara faced similar drama, as survival became a luxury for the fittest.
Jacobs Nsaali lands TV job
More remembered for his arrogance and hot temper than for his singing talent, Tusker Project Fame III reject Jacob Nsaali has landed a job after years of serious grassing. Star Trail has learnt that Jacob will be co-hosting Movie Digest on Record TV with little-known actresses Irene Asumpta and Monica Biwinyo.
Those who watched the show's debut on March 4 reckon that though 31-year-old Jacob exhibited good presenting skills, his knowledge about film was sketchy. Sources close to Nsaali say he has been beaming with pleasure and telling everyone who cares to listen that he is the next big TV star. The same sources intimated to Star Trail that the hunky fella has lived a miserable and broke life after being voted off TPF for misbehaviour. All the best, Jacob; we hope you tame yourself!

Eddy Kenzo shoots video in Dubai

The video was shot by Badi Films Production and Kenzo says he decided to shoot the video in Dubai as a souvenir to himself, "a small boy who hails from Masaka".

Fyonna releases Cranes song
UK-based Fyonna Nsubuga has released a song in support of the national football team, the Uganda Cranes. Fyonna was incensed by the way Ugandans showed their disappointment over the team's failure to qualify for the African cup of nations last year and decided to show support, instead.
As an avid football fan, she believes losing is part of the game and happens to the best of teams. After the song, Fyonna has been booked by MTN to sing the national anthems of both Senegal and Uganda live at Namboole in June, when the Cranes host Senegal.
