So I met Kevin in cell, he went to Ndejje SSS after I’d left. But I’m super mesmerised by his art. And here is why. You can find out more about Kevin on facebook.com/iradukunda.kevin.5 . Advertisements
Dianah Christine Nagujja, commonly known as Dianah Deah is an extremely talented designer, who makes scarves/necklaces. Yes, I said scarves/necklaces. Because you can’t separate them. I recently asked her about them, and learnt much more than I had anticipated. Much more to love. She is Multitalented. “What don’t we already know about you?” Was the… Continue reading 10 Fascinating Reasons We Love Dianah
Every once in a while on a few luxurious occasions I’m given VIP treatment, and invited to such high end parties as the God DNA EP exclusive listening party of creative artist Josh SB Sessions.
Real names you ask? Well,SB stands for Sick Beats, because his music prediction is far from the normal/ ordinary “Ugandan” beats we have come to know and love. What choice do we have, right?
He, and the C19 Studios crew have brought a Next Level product to this market, at no extra charge, so much that the MC just had to ask,”Can’t you be Ugandan?” To which I secretly replied,
“Can’t Ugandan be you?”
Yes, we have set a very low bar for the industry, and though clearing it is not easy for the ordinary Ugandan, Josh has taken a giant leap, plus a few bounds and set a whole new bar. So the question we all need to ask ourselves as Ugandans, is: Can’t we rise to the challenge?
YES WE CAN!
Josh should never have to lower his standard to what was once ours; we should rise to his, and beyond!We can, and we should. And I will 😊. Because I know excellence when I see it, hear it or read it, and I saw, hard and read it in this newest EP; GodDNA, that features some of the best, most passionate, talented minds we have in the music industry today.
All these are amazing, unequally gifted, ordinary individuals doing extraordinary work! And no! We have no right to ask them to give less than their best, because like Walt Disney said; Keep Moving Forward!
So I like to use other peoples photos as my profile picture on Whatsapp and I get asked why.
Let me just answer this question once and for all.
I like, no, admire these people, whether it’s a photographer who took his time and took the perfect shot, or a ballerina who spends her time horning her craft, or a graphic design, well thought of and executed, or a song that speaks deeply to me,
I have,I do and I will always put them up on my virtual wall of fame, because to me, these are heroes and heroines, they have overcome obstacles each so different from the next, each so focused not on the thousand reasons why it can’t happen, but the one reason it must, each fighting a constant battle between giving up on their dream to make extra money, our just because someone said you can’t make it.
Yes, they are good at what they do. Yes, they may not be professing Christians, tongue speaking, demon chasing, verse dropping christians, but, yes, they do glorify the Almighty when they excel in the fields God has placed them in, with the talents He has entrusted them with, and that in itself is an act of worship, according to Watoto Church founder Pastor Gary Skinner, another hero, and one who literally and in all aspects is a professing Christian, and Rick Warren, the author of the Purpose Driven Life.
So yeah, she may be wearing a leotard and nothing else because she is a gymnast,a ballerina or swimmer, and it’s ok. Because, like I say, that’s her line of work. She’s not going to wear a helmet and boots, just like nobody expects you to wear a suit to a construction site.
So, yes, I am a Christian, and I have values, but I’m not a simpleton, and dear brother and sister, hopefully, neither are you. So know your place, have your values, beliefs and practices, but have an open mind and heart, try to understand the rest of God’s creation who are not designed like you, and know that God saw that it was good. ( Genesis 1:4-25)
