Yes, for all this long, singer A Pass was the type that kept their money under their mattress or in the pillow – afterall it wasn’t that much. But that shall be history because as of today, he is a proud new bank account holder in the United Bank of Africa (UBA) as the money deals have started coming in for the singer who broke out last year.
We witnessed and laughed sheepishly as A Pass, clad in black skinny khaki trousers, and open shoes, walked into the UBA main branch along Jinja Road and headed to the account opening section and clearly stated; “I’ve never owned a bank account before and I was told this bank is good!”
Meanwhile the lady on the other side did not seem to have heard A Pass’ exclamation; as she simply smiled endlessly for about five minutes- she was clearly star-struck.
The lady abandoned all the other people in the queue and rushed to the sales office to get someone to assist A Pass, but instead about four ladies emerged. A Pass was handed account opening forms, but the lady practically did most of the filling in and with glee.
A Pass was told his account would be ready for use after 48 hours; but the bank people were too excited to realise the excitement the whole achievement had brought on the singer’s face. He walked away with a huge smile! Congs buddy!
