At the start of this week, socialite Sheilah Gashumbah through a tweet initiated the “UGX 500,000 birthday challenge” aimed at giving back to MC Kats on his just-concluded birthday celebrations.
Sheilah Gashumba urged fellow celebrities in the entertainment industry to chip in UGX 500K each, in appreciation for the good work done by MC Kats towards the creative sector.
Many respected Sheilah’s cause, and hours after, Mc Kats couldn’t believe the message traffic on his phone as artists, comedians, media personalities and others sent in their contributions in different currencies.
