Singer Spice Diana, born Namukwaya Hajara Diana, has apologised to her fans for a fairy tale she told on NTV claiming she got 32 points at A-Level.
Diana who has was doing History, Art and Luganda claims to have been the best performer in her school.
“I got…I think 30 what…30 something, yah, 32 points,” she told Faridah Nakazibwe, the host of “Mwasuze Mutya” [good morning] programme.
“That was a second grade. 32. Yah. Because my school was performing well,” she added, confusing senior four with senior six.
The maximum grading for Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education [UACE] was 25 points before being reduced to 20 points by Uganda National Examinations Board [UNEB].
The remarks spread an outrage across social media prompting the singer to issue an apology with a purported S.6 certificate from Kampala Citizen College School.
Here is her apology:
Hey all Spice Diana fans, well I have so much to share with you. First things First thanks for coming through and supporting me in large numbers on all my three shows i had last weekend. I wouldn’t have made it this far without you. We surely made history on my first ever concert in my career and I thank God for all of you that have supported me through this journey.
I also would like to make a few things clear especially what’s going on about what I said on TV last Friday about my results. I have been going through a crazy phase esp last week when I had a show, then RADIOs death is something i haven’t gotten over plus when I Postponed my concert a week later it affected me personally. I was so stressed but i had to do interviews and try to push the show. This made me disoriented in a way and later I even became sick, although I had to do the show regardless of what I was going through emotionally.
I made a mistake during my interview on TV that was due to mistaking my S6 results with S4. Honestly it’s been long since I left S4 or even S6 I couldn’t remember exactly the points as I have lost touch since. However let me attach my actual results for you my fans. Am sorry for the miscommunication.
We are all humans. We make mistakes. Let’s get over this guys “Aaaah Ahhhh ANTI KALE.Nekyo Kigwa Kale Kantu katono kakukubya embale”
