The level at which Ugandan social media freaks are aggressively looking for following is tending to get annoying and what’s funny about this is how these guys drag celebrities’ names in this whole crap. Recently, someone opened a fake Tycoon SK Mbuga Facebook page and posted how SK was to going to give away one of his monster rides to a lucky winner who likes the page and invites their friends to like it too.
On the same note, late last week and during last weekend, rumours were all over social media that one of Uganda’s top vocalists and singers Rema Namakula had passed on. This all began on one Facebook page dubbed ‘Mudde Dj’Mudde Pro’ that had a post saying that the ‘Akaliro’ singer had gotten a fatal accident that cost her her dear life as she went to perform in the USA.
On hearing this, Rema who recently announced dates for her ‘Banyabo’ concert rubbished this statement and put whoever was spreading this baseless rumour in God’s hands
‘Allah akyalina bingi byaakyankozesa, Ekisela bwekilituuka alimpita but as for now it’s not in anyonez hands. Whoever started posting and sharing the sad news I forgive you and leave you in God’s hands.” Rema posted
However, prior to this, there was a section of people who attacked Rema on social media accusing her of not showing up late at an introduction she had been invited and paid to perform at and we are not sure whether they are the same people spreading her death rumours but Rema’s manager Mr Kayemba called them hooligans
“U see social media has no rules, every kind of person including those who think straight and those who don’t, use it. There are those who just post thing in name of getting followers and this has not happen to Rema alone. Many artistes have been announced dead. These are just stupid people who do things with no aim.”
People had started to pass their condolence messages concerning Rema’s death
