evicted, Naava resumes probation
By Abu-baker Mulumba
Winfrey Nanyonjo’s tears did not save her from eviction
even after the Principal Achieng Abura threw in words of
“You can get over probation. You have done it before
and nothing should stop you now,” Achieng encouraged
her. But she was evicted on Saturday and this week three
Tanzanians and Uganda’s Naava Asha Zziwa (Contestant
number 11) are on probation.
Naava has been nominated more than anyone in the house.
She has only missed one nomination in the 39 days they have
been in the academy.
Others on probation are Linah Mohammed Blanche (9), Felly
Kano (5) and Hemedi Seif Suleiman (6).
But despite the eviction fever, the students had an extraordinary
day on Tuesday in the Academy as calls were made, a movie
screened and a change of lifestyle was about to happen.
All students were allowed to call their loved ones back
home and Stephen’s mum had a piece of advice for her
son: “lose the vest that you always wear my boy, you
are embarrassing me!”
Linah’s fiancé reprimanded her for getting
too close to the boys in the academy.
The academy also had a surprise guest in form of the popular
East African rapper CMB Prezzo.
Ugandan Jacob Nsaali was saved from probation after impressing
the judges with I’m the Tiger from Rocky. Stephen
Oundo did How Deep is Your Love from the Bee Gees and he
was given thumbs up by the judges for his fantastic vocal
Esther Mugizi’s rendition of Vanessa Williams Colours
of the Wind impressed even Kenyan judge Ian Mbugua: “you
have made my evening with that great performance.”
Viewers will get a chance to save one of the contestants,
in the Shs 75m singing competition that also comes with
a recording contract with Gallo Records, for the winner.
