KAMPALA – The President of the Uganda Musicians’Association (UMA) singer, Wycliffe Tugume alias Ykee Benda has explained why his relationship with journalist Sheila Ndukuhire failed to come to life.
From the time Ykee Benda’s relationship with his longtime lover and baby mama Julie Batenga hit rock-bottom, the singer has been jumping from one crush to another, with most notably actress Martha Kay and Sheila Nduhukire.
Despite having a serious crush on Sheila, Benda’s fans were shocked recently when he disclosed that he was involved in a car accident with his baby mama Julie and their son Dante.
This left many questions as many asked where his relationship/crush with Sheila ended, and what he was doing with Julie.
In an interview on a local TV station earlier this week, Benda said that Sheila got the opportunity to be Mrs Tugume but she misused it, so he had to go back to his baby mama.
“Sheila Nduhukire failed out on the love game because she got the opportunity but failed to utilize it. When you get a chance to be approached by a powerful person like me, you have to respond quickly, but she failed to do so. Her chance is now gone and it’s really very bad for her,” he said.
It ought to be remembered that Benda tried so much to woo Sheila on many occasions and he at one time promised to visit Sheila’s parents and make their relationship official.
“I have watched her on TV for some time. I am single myself and I am sure she is the kind of person I want. I need to meet her parents and lay my intentions dear,” Benda said then.
Sheilah Nduhukire, an award winning journalist who is currently a news anchor with NBSTV was also once a Guild President at Mbarara University of Science and Technology
