Angella Katatumba talks new music, stepping into her daddy’s shoes, and that Chicken Tonight brawl



ngella Katatumba, the honorary Pakistan consul to Uganda and daughter to respected businessman Boney Katatumba (RIP), is a musician and philanthropist best known for her contribution to cancer treatment at Mulago hospital.

But recently she got into a brawl with staff at a fast food joint, Chicken Tonight. At the end of it all she was beaten badly and a case is in court. Justus Lyatuu caught up with Angella at the family’s Hotel Diplomate in Muyenga after a court session.

Hi Angella!

Hi! Sorry for keeping you waiting, but at last I have come. I like The Observer, at least I respect you guys. You don’t write stories without evidence.

Thank you! In that vein, what really happened at Chicken Tonight?

There are different stories about the incident, but by the fact that the culprits were remanded to Luzira prison, you can judge and tell whose version is right.

Anyways, there is a Jamaican artiste called Anthony B who came to Uganda recently to do a concert. He came along with Kuzi Kz [also a Jamaican musician]. The moment I interacted with him, I fell in love with his style of music and we decided to do a collabo.

We had a crash programme; recording two videos and two audios; so, that day we worked until very late – about 4am. I had been dropped by my security at Chicken Tonight, Kabalagala branch.
