In one of her interviews during the launch of her new hairline, Singer Sheebah Karungi was quoted saying, “I don’t want to lie to myself that I will sing all my life. The only way to prepare for that is to open up a business and earn from not only music but also the business’’ Sheebah said.
As you read this, Sheebah Karungi is not only a singer but also a businesswoman after opening her hair business last evening in an invite-only event. The singer launched a partnership with hair company Natna to form the partnership called SheebaByNatna.
SheebaByNatna – located on Prism Plaza, Kampala Road – deals in hair pieces that range from 150K to 250k. According to Sheebah, she chose to venture in hair because she is a feminist who was brought up and empowered by a single mother. She therefore wants to empower single mothers as well.
“I love hair and I know all the slay queens of Kampala also do love hair. Different stores in Kampala have been selling us wigs at millions of shillings but I have decided to bring pieces at a cheaper price,” Sheebah said.
The hair pieces go by the names of some of the singer’s songs and the notable ones were Weekend, Feminist, The Way, Karma and Ice Cream among others.
The event whose dress code was all-black attracted media and Sheebah’s friends and family of Sheebah. Singers who attended the cocktail event were Winnie Nwagi, Vinka, Roden Y Kabako and Diamond Oscar.
