If you hadn't already noticed, Kampala is teeming with young and middle-aged singles who are on the verge of developing philophobia (the fear of falling in love or being in love). Many of these single people are already unintentional philophobes; disillusioned with love as a result of painful prior encounters or the love-hardship stories of their f...

Kenyans of different persuasions went to the polls on August 9 to vote in a general election that the Brookings Institution, an American think tank, contends will provide an important bellwether for where the African continent is heading. The stakes are high, and the world is keenly watching what is already an edgy two-horse race bet...

Preaching to Africa's GMO-averse countries and publics about the long-term merits of GM technology to the continent's agriculture systems remains very much a work in progress. More often than not, ignorance of the virtues of GM technology and unwarranted anti-GMO lobby narratives have stood in the way of progress. In recent years, however, the tide...

I was already a legend on the Radi...

“Chill with all that fuss about good looks,” a friend once quipped as we talked one weekend at one of Kampala’s quiet rendezvous places. 


A couple of young nice-looking females were parleying in our midst.

“I am for brains over beauty. In propositioning to a lady, I place a premium on her intellect,” he closed out. 

In my reverie at home, I thought about what he had said. I thought to myself, that writing about would not be a bad idea after all.

 Later, I did some online searches and came across information that seemed to connect with what he was saying.

There is indeed a world out there where brains hold sway over beauty; a world where real people, yes real people looking for people to date, look beyond skin deep beauty as their foremost dating attribute.

That world, which has been christened the Sapiosexual world, is a world where people are attracted to someone of the opposite sex on account of their brain power or call it their intellect.

Only your smarts will get you into a prospective lover’s good graces and get you laid for good measure in the sapiosexual world.

Sapiosexuality is not an indelicate sexual orientation; so, trust me moralists like Pastor Ssempa will lose no sleep if they hear about it.

So we now know for sure that an election loss is not after all a bitter pill to swallow for disgruntled African Politicians only. By refusing to concede defeat to Joe Biden in what US authorities are calling one of the most secure elections in US history, Trump has shown the world that he has something in common with some of the third world's paria...

In part two of this Podcast, I disabuse some of the false impressions created by some western media outlets on the heavy-handedness of some African security forces during COVID-19 lockdowns. Some headlines in western media like the [France 24] April story headline entitled-" Curfew crackdowns in several African countries kill more people than ...

Looking into my crystal ball, I can ably predict that the longer COVID-19 keeps rearing its ugly head, the scarier it will likely get for Ugandan musicians, specializing in genres, where getting appreciated, however hardworking one is, is akin to casting pearls before swine. For the Ugandan music industry in general and am just an innocent crystal ...
