Even if the main event is taking place on the 19th of August this year, the Uganda Entertainment Awards couldn’t wait to announce that singer Angella Katatumba is the recipient for the Humanitarian Noble Award.
However, the artiste will receive the accolade at the Awards giving gala with the rest of the winners but the news of her win was passed on in an email by Mr Ronald Kabuye, the Chairman Organizing committee of the prestigious awards.
This comes when Angella is set for her maiden charity VIP concert which is dubbed MULAGO YAFFE at the Kampala Serena Hotel scheduled for Friday 1st July 2016 at 6PM. Ticket prices are set at 100,000 UGX, while tables go for 5 Million for 10 People and 3 Million for 6 People respectively with proceeds going to the Uganda Cancer Institute for the fight against Cancer.
Itshould also be remembered that, in January of this year, Angella donated 10,000,000 UGX to the Intensive Care Unit at Mulago National Referral Hospital which was well received. Her donation which was used to buy a Phototherapy Machine and a Syringe Pump is saving the lives of about 60 babies every week.
