NTV ‘Style Project Show’ Host, Tazibone Backs Sheilah Gashumba, Gives Advise To TV Presenters

May 2, 2020

Renown city fashion Icon and and NTV Style Project show host, Tazibone Solomon has backed former workmate, Sheilah Gashumba about TV presenter’s pay rise request.

Sheilah Gashumba took to her Twitter handle and accused NTV of paying presenters peanuts yet they are wrecking in lots of money. She also revealed that while working on NTV ‘The Beat’, they used to pay her 50k per show, 5-days a week, taking home 1m. On the Style Project Show, she used to earn 100k per show, taking home 400k a month.

To Sheilah, her make up artiste use to take 80k per show, no facilitation for transport, clothing etc.

As some critics started bashing her and reminding her being a school drop out, her former workmate, Tazibone through a sub tweet on one of Sheilah Gashumba’s rants, confirmed that being on the TV set is not a bed of roses as viewers might think.

He added that it’s all about smoke and mirrors before he went on to reveal that one can’t entirely depend on Ugandan TV alone to make ends meet.

Tazibone also disclosed how he feels pity for Ugandan TV presenters who don’t have side businesses before he wondered how they make it in life.

He finally trashed the idea of one being in the spotlight and exposed but when the job that propels him or her in that direction can’t maintain the image and lifestyle costs that come with it.

“Truth bombs! The majority believe being on TV is a bed of roses nga its all smoke and mirrors. One can’t entirely depend being on Ugandan TV alone to get by. Ela nsasira nyo Ugandan TV presenters without side hustles. The idea of fame and exposure is exciting, but not when a job propels you into the limelight and yet can’t pay you enough to maintain the image and lifestyle it requires”.
