KAMPALA– Actor Ashraf Ssemwogerere has penned down a letter to the Ugandan female artist Rema Namakula cautioning her about exposing her marital status to the public through music.
Following the release of her latest controversial hit song ‘Siri muyembe’ that in one way or the other attacks boyfriend and fellow musician Eddy Kenzo for his laxity towards their marriage, the CEO Suubi drama group asserts this was a wrong move that Rema has to correct if she still wishes to have a stable marriage.
Ssimwogerere believes Rema’s Siri Muyembe love song was on point though it wasn’t applicable for a mother like her who is in the showbiz industry.
“In “SHOW BEES”, where you belong, if you want to be successful, you have to be young, appreciated and admirable. Have a nice home never mind if rented, with single married status. You need to be extra ordinary good in what you show the ppl,” educated Ssemwogerere.
“The most important undo in show bees. “NEVER ANNOUNCE YOUR MARITAL STATUS TO Be POSITIVE”. Once you do it, the law of diminishing returns will apply on you. Here I can give you many examples. And I will mention names because I’m not character assassinating anybody,” he added.
Below is Actor Ashraf Ssemwogerere’s heartwarming letter to songbird Rema Namakula.
Hi Rehemah, I don’t want to insinuate that you are doing well after that lovely song “KAYEMBE”. I thank the writer for the good poetic language.
And the good picture of the video. Tho I for one the video story didn’t synchronize so well with the song. However Geofrey Kayemba Ssolo your manager must be a happy man.
There is something I want us to discuss for your own good.
In politics, if you want to be successful and pull the masses, build a good house, buy a nice car, marry a nice lady or gentleman and start a stable family. On top of that behave well and get involved in charity, with your stable job or business. Not forgetting where the majority fall.
And in “SHOW BEES”, where you belong, if you want to be successful, you have to be young, appreciated and admirable. Have a nice home never mind if rented, with single married status. You need to be extra ordinary good in what you show the ppl.
To make your show bees likable.
Show bees include performing artistes (musicians, dramatists, comedians), and pastors (preachers).
The most important undo in show bees. “NEVER ANNOUNCE YOUR MARITAL STATUS TO Be POSITIVE”. Once you do it, the law of diminishing returns will apply on you. Here I can give you many examples. And I will mention names because I’m not character assassinating anybody.
There is an organization which encouraged young men and women to get married and save their lives. They used popular artistes like Sam Gombya RaggaDee, Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine and many others to popularize their campaign. Billboards were everywhere in Uganda to announce their partners. That was the beginning of their diminishing returns.
Today most of them have joined politics. Sam Gombya is no longer doing well in Show bees, but he joined politics and he is the deputy Mayor of Kampala central. Ragga Dee, tried to run for Kampala mayorship. Tho he failed, he is now successfully working for NRM. Chameleon is still fighting to regain his glory. When the bosses of former Eagles production showed their partners, their story is no different. It’s as if they announced their retirement. They are now struggling to maintain their glory which is no more. Sophie Nantongo made two mistakes; she married, divorced and changed from a Moslem to a Christian man.
The Moslems went emotional to start a boycott for her it’s like a sin to invite Sophie on a Moslem’s function. I doubt whether she will ever gain her glory. In show bees when you announce your marital status to be positive you lose all those who admire you to either marry them or be their friends. With the new Eagles, Mr. Geoffrey Lutaaya was wise enough to bring in Betina Namukasa and that young man, I’m forgetting his name.
This applies to Born again churches too. The way those Pastors conduct themselves is real Show bees. Its not like the mainstream churches we are used to. A pastor will spend a lot of money on clothes to attract flocks. Women will smartly stage themselves to be picked. Meanwhile, the 1/10(ekimu ekye kumi) will be big to make the pastor happy. A pastor who announces his partner early will lose it. Pastor Jessica Kayanja took a long time. Until he was sure that his Church was stable. But his popularly never remained the same.
Look at Pastor Wilson Bugembe the moment he will announce the woman to marry I don’t think that church will ever be the same. He is still waiting for his church to have a firm foundation.
Back to you my daughter Rehema. I might be insinuating but I’m a dad of realism. I know by now must have a professional Muzungu manager. There is no good muzungu manager who can allow Kenzo to get married now. Unless he is going to divorce in a year. You must have heard it in Europe and America musician good musician there marry to have children before they divorce to concentrate on Business. Try to google you will tell me. Don’t force Kenzo to marry you. He will do it to please you and divorce to leave you in tears. That is how show bees work. From what I see, read and hear Kenzo loves you so much. But there must be some pressure from his manager not to marry.
And Kenzo a young man can’t accept to compromise money making for MARRIAGE.
As a Moslem, I think you know what to do. I don’t want to see you losing Kenzo for show bees. Hold it otherwise you may regret. You two are no longer ordinary. Many ppl are looking at you. The opportunist will use your weakness to fail you and take your Kenzo. Listen to yourself, not to others. “Rehemah wadde abolugave batugamba nti abawala baba balalu naye mubulalu mwetufumbira. Sooka okole sente. Akobusiramu bwetulisisinkana ngenda kakugamba”. Most important; the knowledge of Allah shud be your capital.
Your “dad”, Hajj Ssemwogerere Ashraf Ashraf.”
