Frank Gashumba is not letting critics go against daughter Sheilah Gashumba for the statements she made on her Twitter account on Friday night. Sheilah attacked NTV Uganda claiming that the station exploits its presenters by paying them peanuts revealing how she was being paid Shs50,000 per show.
Sheilah made matters worse when she said that she would rather sell samosas or be an Uber driver than a TV presenter.
After Sheilah put up the post, she received a lot of criticism from social media users. Gashumba launched an attack on Sheilah’s critics while defending his daughter’s tweet.
While speaking on UNCUT an entertainment show on NBS TV, Gashumba strongly defended his daughter as he revealed that he only allowed Sheilah to work for UGX 50k per show to help her develop strong working ethics.
Gashumba alleged that all the programs Sheila worked on became very popular because of her saying that programs that his daughter quit presenting lost viewership and following.
He mentioned NTV The Beat, T-Nation, and The Style Project show as the programs that her daughter helped get a huge following. He wondered whether TV viewers still even watch those programs on NTV since his daughter quit.
“NTV The Beat, T-Nation, and The Style Project shows are no longer trending because Sheilah quit,” Gashumba stated.
Gashumba bashed Sheilah’s critics who refer to her as a slay queen by describing them as ‘fools’. He said that those attacking Sheilah are frustrated idlers who have no moral authority of commenting on a ‘big’ brand like her.
