After analyzing the country’s couples for a period of time, we finally came up with the top 10 couples. We challenge you to give any better couples than the ones you are about to read about. Note that this list is only in alphabetical order.
- Eddie Kenzo and Rema
Less than five years of living under one roof, this is one of the most rising couple taking over the music industry. After a lot of rumours from the public about Rema having an affair with Matthias Walukagga a veteran Kadongokamu artiste, Rema decided to prove them wrong by moving in with Kenzo. The couple is living a beautiful life at their acquired home in Ggaba that is estimated to have cost Kenzo more than 500 Million Ugandan shillings.
- Geoffrey and Irene Lutaaya
Both musicians in Da Nu Eagles, this is probably one of the oldest couple in the music industry. They have known each other even before their former defunct musical group Eagles Production. Their marriage has also been faced with various scandals like that of ‘Nice’, who claimed that she was in love with Lutaaya. However, the icing on the cake was done when Lutaaya wedded Irene Namatovu in 2014.
- Joseph and Daniella Mayanja
One of the most beautiful couple in Uganda although most of the times they are in the news for negative reasons. The most recent one being this year when Daniella walked out of Chameleone’s home for their own known reasons. Their couple received a huge blow last year when Daniella lost her ‘father’, Fr. John Scalabrini who was providing them with a lot of support in different ways.
- Kabaka Ronald Mutebi and Nnabagereka Sylivia Nagginda
‘Ssabasajja Kabaka awangaale ne Nnabagereka agerekere Obuganda’. This is a sentence recited by Baganda as a sign of well-wishing to the royal family. Their wedding is believed to be the most attended to wedding in Uganda’s history. Blessed with one daughter, Katrina Ssangalyambogo, the couple always moves together to different events. The joy it brings to the people of Buganda is incomparable. If we were to conduct polls, I bet this couple would come out at the top of the list.
- Kizza Besigye and Winnie Byanyima
Even if they spend most of the time apart due to their different demanding roles, this couple still managed to make it to the list. Winnie has braved lots of challenges including the rape accusations on her husband but stayed strong. In the last general elections campaigns (2016), some people attribute Besigye’s performance to the absence of Winnie Byanyima at his rallies. Besigye always looked lonely. Up to now, many opposition supporters refer to Winnie as ‘First Lady’.
- Moses and Zuena Ssali
“Maama w’abaana bange, komawo eka mukwano ofumbe…” (Mother of my children, come back home) are some of the words that Moses Ssali commonly known as Bebe Cool once used in a song that appealed to his wife Zuena Kirema to come back when she had divorced him. It’s one of the divorce that took over the media and public by storm. Eventually, she returned to her family and they have been together since then. They are known for showering each other with gifts while celebrating their birthdays.
- Robert and Barbie Kyagulanyi
Popularly known as Bobi Wine and Barbie Kyagulanyi, this couple has been around for more than a decade is seen as the best celebrity couple. Their marriage was legalized in August 2011 in a colorful event that left Kampala residents mesmerized. The couple continues to be inspiring especially to the young people out there. They once held a TV Show on one of the local televisions in Uganda. Lately, they have been involved in various charity causes under Caring Hearts Uganda.
- Robert and Jessica Kayanja
The Born-again Christian couple joins in the list. The Rubaga Miracle Centre Cathedral lead pastor, Robert Kayanja has been spotted at various crusades, gatherings, and events with Jessica. They always seem inseparable and they never fail to shower each other with love even when they are in front of their followers at the church. Even when the homosexual scandal came knocking on their door, Jessica was there for Robert.
- Sudhir and Joystina Ruparelia
Until recently when Uganda’s business mogul Sudhir Ruparelia started losing some of his property, this has been known to be a very powerful and joyful couple always seen together especially in Indian community gatherings. Even if they are rarely seen in public these days, they still remain a great couple and seem to be together up to the very end.
- Yoweri and Janet Museveni
The first couple of Uganda has been around for a very long period of time. We have watched this beautiful couple a lot of times attending different occasions and they seem to be going strong each and every passing day. At least we cannot compare it to the Obama family that was once shaken by Beyonce rumours or Clinton family that suffered from Monica Lewinsky.
