Fun Factory gets boost from Bell Lager ahead of their 5 Star Madness comedy show

By Our Reporter

Bell Lager has unveiled its sponsorship of the annual 5 Star Madness Comedy Show organized by Uganda’s renowned sketch comedy group, Fun Factory.

“This is the biggest comedy show of the year. This time, as you laugh to Fun Factory’s jokes, you can sip on an ice-cold Bell Lager and toast to a perfect evening. Bell is all about powering those celebratory and fun moments. What better way to do that than sharing a couple of laughs with friends over a drink?” Maureen Rutabingwa Bell Brand Manager said.

The highly anticipated event will have different comedians outdo themselves blending most of the hottest and funniest comedy skits that capture the current trends in society especially for their fans who never get the time to watch the weekly shows.

“We will take a jab at the highlights of the year adding a funny twist to them that is definitely going to crack you up. We’ve also added a jazz touch to the show. We will have performances from instrumentalist, Joseph Sax and his band,” said Richard Tuwangye, a founding member of Fun Factory.

This year’s show is slated for 15th December at the Kampala Serena Hotel and tickets are being sold at UGX70, 000 for Silver, UGX100, 000 for Gold and UGX 2 million for a VVIP table. They can be purchased from National Theatre, online via Easy Ticket or at Serena Hotel.

Tiwa Savage and estranged hubby, Teebillz could get back together soon

Tiwa Savage and estranged hubby Teebillz

Fans of Mavin records singer, Tiwa Savage may be buzzing following a report that she might be returning to the father of her son, Jamil, as the warring duo have been holding peace talks.

A source close to the estranged couple exclusively told LIB that they are working on their marriage. It should be recalled that earlier speculations also confirmed their reconciliatory moves with rumours that Tiwa Savage still nurses a soft spot for her handsome former music manager, Teebillz.

The two who went their separate ways earlier this year after almost two years of marriage are said to be undergoing marriage counseling for corrective purposes.

They were recently spotted together at a private birthday party of another celebrity. Tiwa and Teebillz came together and left together according to reports but there are no pictures to affirm the claims.

Teebillz has successfully undergone a rehabilitation process and has returned to Instagram to pursue his daily activities and sharing of inspirational quotes.

Sauti Sol’s partnership with Chrome vodka has been signed and sealed. The vodka that was launched this year will see Sauti Sol become its second time ambassadors through which they will market the vodka through various activations.

The multimillion shilling deal will see Kenya Breweries Limited invest in the group as they set out to perform at different counties as they roll out the campaign.

Today marked the renewal of our partnership with @chromevodka. Launched in February this year, the relationship has been a perfect fit for both brands leveraging on each other’s success. Sauti Sol embodies #ShineOn – this is why we are in the position we are today. As a group and friends, we’ve gone through a lot of hurdles along the way but we never lost focus of our dreams and that is how we got to where we are. On top of all that, we still DREAM BIG.” The group posted on social media.

“The partnership brought to life a strong connection between Chrome Vodka’s position as an aspirational premium quality vodka and us, the leading music brand in Kenya. Together, we created a unique platform that resonated with our target audiences.

The numbers speak for themselves. The results and the impact of our partnership between @chromevodka further establish that the Entertainment Industry is a sector that is growing in strength and influence in Kenya. We commend the Chrome team for being big thinkers and seeing the value and potential in the space between business and the entertainment world. #ShineOn.” Another post read.

Video: Rapper Young Thug blasts Airline staff, calls them peasants.

Young Thug gave two female Alaska Airlines employees the business for trying to make him miss his flight and his show … at least that’s the way he saw it.

The rapper went in on the women pretty hard — calling them “peasants” and “ants” with “nappy” hair. You can tell they’re pissed as he tried to offer them $15k to quit their jobs.

A rep for the airline tells TMZ … Thug was supposed to be on a flight from ATL to Seattle, but he arrived after their 45 minute cutoff period. We’re told they still offered him a seat on a partner flight, but he declined.
