Meanwhile, over the weekend, Kansiime held auditions for children aged between five and 12 that will appear in her upcoming music videos for her album that she will be launching on December 15.

“My relationship with these youngsters will not just stop at being part of the videos, but I plan to have them on my tour that will cover different parts of Africa,” she told us.
