South African- based Ugandan socialite and Rich Gang boss Ivan Semwanga was in the news late last year when he surfaced with a different look. He bleached his skin and who ever saw him last year can remember how he turned light skinned especially after the fall out with estranged wife Zari Hassan.
Media was awash with images of the new Ivan and even when he showed up at the end of the year for the festive season he still spotted the ‘new look’ as it became a subject of discussion and ridicule among many gossipers on social media.
Fast forward December 2016, we were astonished when we saw him back to his original black colour a thing that forced us wonder what had happened to the so called Rich Gang boss. He was spotted busy having fun with his colleagues ED Cheune and Adams at the recently concluded Arab Money Fab party that took place at The Square Place located in Industrial Area –Kampala and other hangouts over the weekend looking un bothered by the stares.
Bleaching or skin colour change has recently become a trend among celebrities in East Africa and the world at large is first spreading among the fans as well especially with the ladies. Although ministry of health has warned of side effects, many continue to use the bleaching agents and lotions. Those who do bleach have their own reasons though the common one is the belief that it makes one look more beautiful or attractive.
In related news, the Rich Gang is also scheduled to throw a big end of year party dubbed ‘Made of Money’ tomorrow and we will keep our ears and eyes on the ground for any updates.
