Hi canary, thanks for creating time for this interview! Start by telling me some background information about yourself?
I am the second last born in a family of 4. Born in Mbarara, 1st year student at IUEA doing I.T. I am a professional commercial and runway model, TV host, Fashion blogger founder of Version 86, Creative director- Fashion Republique. Net
I know you are enjoying significant success as a model, when did you discover you can be a model and who convinced you?

What's your biggest professional achievement so far in your career?
My biggest achievement has been the respect I have earned from people, I enjoy certain privileges because of the work I do and I have built a good reputation
What do you think are the features/qualities you have that attract other people the most?
My self-discipline is my best feature. I am an honest person and am very patient. Secondly, as I mentioned above, I was trained to be a model, therefore I mastered the art of walking on the runway, the confidence and attitude towards the cameras.
Your career involves hanging around with hot babes, right? How is it like to keep up with those girls?
Keeping up with hot girls? It is normal. I mean, which person works around only men or only females? We all work around different sexes, therefore it is normal to me.

There people who say, male models are gay, what do you have to say about that?
It is a wrong stereotype that Ugandans use because they know absolutely not much about male modeling, it is a new thing in the country, that has to be embraced with time, people choose to be gay by themselves, but not all male models are gay and if one is gay and at the same time a model, it is a coincidence, the same way you will find an engineer who is gay.
