Her composure as she listened to the startling “32points at ‘A’ level” utterance on national TV belongs to another league of TV presenters. We have to give it up for NTV’s Faridah Nakazibwe, a news anchor and host of Mwasuze Mutya, a local TV programme that airs on NTV Uganda every morning.
But now how do we help this upcoming music artiste Spice Diana who made such a blunder during her appearance on national TV? What was going on in her mind when she confidently said she scored 32 points at A-Level in History, Art and Luganda? As if to add salt to injury, Diana added that she was one of the best students in her school with a second grade. Excuse me while I laugh out loud for a few minutes.
It did not help matters when she dared to explain the circumstances within which she made this appalling statement. Apparently she was going through a rough patch with the death of Radio (R.I.P) and her preparations for her upcoming shows at that time.
Oba such pity party antics worsen the situation. Then Spice Diana further tried to rectify the situation. The drama!
Such are the after effects of going for interviews without prior preparation. Who even lets these people out to such programmes? I really felt embarrassed on her behalf. Even worse, this mess comes shortly after her graduation, making many doubt that degree.
Spice Diana really took us to circus. I guess this is what happens when people try so hard to balance all worlds only to end up lost and confused. Someone wants to give the impression that they have excelled academically without actually being there because seriously one of the best students in class, like she claims cannot fail to tell the difference between ‘O’ and ‘A’ level. The fact that she is fresh from university also leaves a lot of questions.
Poor Faridah who had to maintain that “golden demeanor” as she probably shrunk in shock on the inside. This is the part where we agree with that English adage “what is done in the dark will always come out in light”. Whatever it is that Spice Diana, the alleged top student in her class according to her, did to excel while she got brainwashed at the same time is a tale known to only her.
The rest of us will just sit down, grab some popcorn and watch out for the next attempt at explaining all this while we hope at the same time that she can just take a chill pill and save us the details so that everyone can forget and let it go as she focuses on whatever it is that she chooses to do. Music, or another attempt at elaborating on how she was the best in school.
