Social media is awash with pictures of Uganda’s kick boxing champion Moses Golola in a suit holding onto a “bride” like his life depended on it.
His fans have been congratulating him for “wedding his long-time girlfriend” at an alleged private ceremony.
Some went as far as claiming the ceremony took place at Lubaga Cathedral and the reception at Speke Resort Munyonyo.
It is therefore not shocking to see reports claiming the “couple” has been “together for 7 years and have two children”.
On closer analysis, the so-called bride is actually singer Nab Vilani.
As it turns out, she and Golola were shooting a music video for her latest song “Nji”.
“Nji” is a song dedicated to those drowning in love, Vilani said while sharing its audio back in December last year.
Vilani is known for songs like Am Shy, Sweet Malaika and Radio.
Her Facebook status clearly indicates “single”.
Vilani is a young talented music artist with a futuristic sound signed under a Record Label Ugawood Records.
Born 23rd November 2000 in Mukono, she went to Jit primary school where she started her music career, singing in school and church choir.
During her college time, she participated in many musical activities and won many accolades.
Golola himself said on his Facebook wall Wednesday: “Watch out the coming vidio “Injji “coming soon.”
He had shared a picture of himself with Vilani from the video-shoot mistaken as wedding.
On Thursday, edge.ug contacted Golola on the matter but the kick boxer had no comment.
Knowing the “Massape” Golola, if this was a wedding, he would have shouted it at the peak of Mountain Rwenzori with the legendary trumpets that saw a biblical city of Jericho fall to Israelites in their conquest of Canaan.
You know Golola, right? He is the only man who can hang his clothes on an MTN line, climb Mountain Dew and pocket when he is naked.
In 2012, he told New Vision that he had no woman in his life although he is “romantic, full of love and knows how to handle a woman”.
In 2016, media reports said the kick boxing maestro was broke and had been evicted from his rental [muzigo] in Mutundwe.
He allegedly rented another muzigo in Bwaise only for his “wife” [not named] to flee to Juba, the capital of South Sudan.
Golola is known for his humorous personality and flamboyant showmanship, traits which helped him popularise the sport of kickboxing in Uganda, East Africa and helped me to gain a large fan following.
