A LOT HAS been said about the celebrated TV presenter, emcee and ,er, musician Straka Mwezi.
Much has been talked about her career, intimate life and a lot more about her kid that she sired with the dancehall raga muffin, Sizzaman.
Xclusive UG sat Straka down and she spilled all…
Xclusive UG: Can you briefly tell us more about you?
STRAKA: In a few words, I would do say am Uganda’s most celebrated TV personality.
Xclusive UG: When did you join television and how old are you?
STRAKA: Well, I joined TV 14 years back but for my age I prefer it a secret. I don’t see it as anyone’s part of value. (Smiles serenely)
Xclusive UG: Are your parents still alive, if so, who are they?
STRAKA: I am happy to say one is still alive but still I do prefer to keep that private.
Xclusive UG: Everything seems private to you, got some haters?
STRAKA: I believe that anyone in life has got haters. It’s not that everyone will like you or what you do!
Xclusive UG: We hear you are now deep into music; so are you going to dump TV job for music, does music pay much higher than TV?
STRAKA: That’s hilarious because none of them has hindered me to do the other. I can still handle both of them; the TV job is my career, and music has always been my passion. So whether TV or music I’ve always been in the entertainmentindustry and remember I’m also a professional emcee so the financial benefits are the same.
Xclusive UG: Who manages you?
STRAKA: I have always had a manager under Straka Management.
Xclusive UG: Where did your relationship and love affair with Sizzaman end?
STRAKA: We were never in love although we got a child together. Our role now is to co-parent our child, nothing intimate.
Xclusive UG: What more can you speak about Sizza?
STRAKA: (with a silent smile) I’m very sensitive when it comes to my private life most especially that now I have a child involved, so I beg we skip that topic please.
Xclusive UG: Where do you hangout?
STRAKA: (laughs justly) Where the vibe is on hype is where you will find me.
Xclusive UG: Apparently your former landlord wanted sex, how did it end?
STRAKA: I guess you heard the song entitled ‘Landlord’ by Straka Baibe; you will listen to the details for the incident if you haven’t yet I recommend you visit YouTube and get the visual bit of the story but that’s in the past now. I have a new project called ‘Kinyenya Nyo’ still by me the one and only Straka Baibe. (Laughs) I love myself.
Xclusive UG: Tell us more about your new music projects…
STRAKA: It’s a club banger about a woman’s behind (big bum) which I do proudly say is one of the assets a Ugandan woman is known to have. That song is a different story like I said the Landlord issue is in the past and the style is also very different. I just found out I’m very versatile with music.
