Have you always been like that while growing up?

Every child has some gossip in them. When you’re a kid, you don’t know what’s right or wrong and you’re basically just throwing up words. I never really cared about what Ugandan celebrities were all about. In fact when I first got the show, I cried because I was not interested in celebrity lives. I then realized that this is a role I have to play. I basically act every day on the show. The show has nothing to do with my daily life outside the set so after the show I am a different person and am always minding my own business.

So is your Scoop on Scoop show scripted?

No it isn’t but at the start I used to script it because I hadn’t yet gotten used to it. But now I don’t script. I just get subjects to focus on for the show. I usually get my subjects and ideas for the show on set while I’m on air. At times, I even change my subjects during the show contrary to what I had planned before.
