When we speak of Tycoons, Uganda has had its fair share of those over the years.
These Self styled money bags usually flood the Kampala entertainment scene with money we are not aware of its origin. As is, they disappear like they came.
Today, we are counting them down and reliving these memories.
- Mike Ezra
This One is the Pioneer of this tycoon business in Uganda. Mike most profound moment was when he paraded a heap if dollars way before even 10% of Uganda’s population had seen a dollar. It is said however that these we fake but he never stayed around long enough to explain. He has since disappeared in thin air.
- Sue Ochola
Who can forget the endless Arab parties with this one. Sue made a name for herself in kampala’s most affluent societies for the money she threw around. Who can tell where she is now.
- Meddie Sentongo
Do you remember when he used to carry around money in a black polythene bag in the Back of his car? We are talking about the Meddie who ate Muzungu’s money with Bad Black but has since disappeared from the scene to date.
- Bad Black
Also Known as Shanita Namuyimba once a street walker, made her fame when she conned a British Business man Greenhalgh of 11b Uganda Shillings and painted Kampala Green with her new found fortune. She however ended up convicted and came out whiter but has since gone silent. We surely miss her comic antics!
- Judith Heard
Once a mere model got fortunate and married rich South African doctor Alex heard to make her one of the new tycoons of her time. She once paraded a Bentley a birthday gift from her rich Hubby. We hear he has since moved on to another Kenyan model leaving Judith Heard to attend blanket and Wines.
- Who can you add to the list?
I’m a whole lot of “what not to expect.”
