KAMPALA – Presidential advisor on Kampala affairs Catherine Kusasira is apparently in the spotlight over a hair debt.
This is because celebrated Kibuli-based barber, Brian Lutaaya a.k.a Brian Barber has threatened to sue presidential advisor, Catherine Kusasira for ‘failing’ to clear a hair debt amounting to shillings 300,000.
The barber claims the debt occurred in 2019 when Kusasira held her ‘Tears of a Woman’ concert that was graced by President Museveni at Serena Hotel.
He made the accusations while appearing on an entertainment show on a local TV entertainment show. Brian Barber said the Golden Band artist hired him as her official barber for the concert and agreed a payment of Shs200, 000.
Lutaaya further alleges that while offering the hair service, she asked him if he had Shs 100,000 with him so she could give it to her kids to buy something to eat which he says did, making it a total of Shs 300, 000.
“She told me, a one Amina would give me the money. During the process, some people came and told her that the President had arrived and that she was supposed to go immediately and sing for him and there was no way of asking her for my money,” Lutaaya said in an interview.
While she was leaving, Lutaaya says he tried to remind her to pay him for the service but she ignored him. “She told me to come to the concert saying Amina would pay me. She was whisked away in her gown attire and that is the last time I saw her”
Lutaaya, who says got to know Kusasira through a manicurist, has threatened to dump his children at the singer’s home to feed them or report her to police should she fail to pay him.
“I have all the evidence. I have all voice notes of the manicurist reminding her to pay my money. She will also compensate for the expenses I have incurred over the two years”
Bryan Barber’s confessions of an artist’s failure to pay hair bills. Last year, Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool found himself in the same situation after famous barber, Mart Barber accused him of failing to pay for his hair services rendered to his family.
