Uganda’s female Artist of the Year 2010, Iryn Namubiru, is set to tour Scandinavia from 5th to 26th March 2011. KSB has learnt that Iryn, who is of the “Byambiligo fame” will be accompanied by dancehall Artist Ceaserman famous for hits like: Mafalanga and, most recently, Taximoney, Angella, Chinaphone, among others. Performing together with Gift of Kaddo, another Ugandan Artist who has taken the country by storm, the tour promises thrilling and rare moments when overseas fans touch base with some of East Africa’s finest entertainers. It will be the second time Iryn will be in Stockholm, having thrilled the crowd a few years back. Iryn has a growing fan base especially in Scandinavia and demand for her music is part of inspiration behind the tour. Back in Uganda, she is constantly becoming a crowd puller, a success she is seeking to expand internationally. Visit KSB for updates about the show.
Wife is Like a TV; Girlfriend is Like a MOBILE
At home you watch TV, but when you go out, you take your MOBILE.
No money, you sell the TV, got money you change your MOBILE.
Sometimes you enjoy TV, but most of the time you play with your MOBILE.
TV is free for life, but for the MOBILE, if you don’t pay, the services will be terminated. That is the relationship.
TV is big, bulky and most of the time old!
But the MOBILE is cute, slim, curvy and very portable.
Operational costs for TV is often acceptable, but for the MOBILE it is often high and demanding.
TV has a remote, MOBILE doesn’t.
You watch the TV from a distance, the MOBILE is always in contact with your body during communication,
close to the mouth and the ear while you hold it with your hands. It’s something you really love.
The TV can never keep secrets. When it talks, everybody in the room listens.
When the MOBILE talks the communication is secret.
You can never send the TV a secret message but with your MOBILE, you can send an SMS, very secret indeed.
Once you leave home, the TV is out of mind. Once the TV is out of mind, your MOBILE takes over and keeps you company.
If you forget your MOBILE, you return to fetch it if possible because it is always much closer to your heart.
MOBILE is a two-way communication (you talk and listen), but with the TV you
MUST only listen (whether you want to or not).
The TV never learns new tricks of the game and has never helped you go online. It is old fashioned. Your MOBILE went online long time and even enables you to send/receive photos and play MP3s. It’s more fashionable!
Most Importantly: TVs don’t have viruses but MOBILES often do…It’s cute but dangerous!
In any case, the initials “TV” stands for “Too Vague” for comfort.
“MOBILE” stands for “My Obedient Babie Is Lovable Eternally”. You will never do without it!
Doesn’t this very good example prove 100% that Kenya’s illegal President Mwai Kibaki is a tribalist of the highest calibre ? KIbaki’s ethnisization of critical Depts or plain lies? Found this in my FB account and thought of sharing. I cannot vouch for its veracity but it may be worth pondering.
