Social media has been buzzing since yesterday morning after Ugandan socialite Sheila Nadege popularly known as Don Zella posted photos of herself kissing with former presidential press secretary, Joseph Tamale Mirundi’s son in a radio studio in Kampala.
The 36-year-old mother of three posted the photos on Sunday morning with captions “If kuwoma was a person” (loosely translated as ‘If sweetness was a person’).
Like the English say: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s against this background that several social media users have accused the mother of twins of being a cougar given the fact that Tamale Mirundi Junior is 13 years younger than herself.
The kissing also happened just days after a nude video recording of the socialite was shared widely on social media sparking outrage from a section of her followers.
However, hours after the studio kissing photos went viral, a seemingly incited Don Zella unleashed more photos of her and the Mirundi Junior hanging out with captions “Just a kiss anti yegwe my miss. SUNDAY WELL SPENT”.
However, the 23-year-old social media commentator insists Zella is merely a friend.
“That photo is a simple thing. The kissing happened in a radio studio where I had accompanied Don Zella for a morning show. It (photo) something someone can describe as a joke; even when read Don Zella’s captions. It was a joke. Don Zella and I are just friends. We hang out a lot,” Junior told Kasuku Live vlog.
Asked why he likes hanging around older women and scandalous socialites, mostly in the entertainment industry yet his father, a renowned journalist, author and radio/tv political analyst is against such lifestyle, he shrugged it off saying his actions have hurt no one.
“Those older women are usually friendly. Don Zella has a good side if you didn’t know. I admit what happened is not good but it’s also not that bad. I kissed Don Zella out of excitement,” he said.
According to him, social media users got it out of context.
“People got it out of context. I did not know that I was that powerful.I have been receiving calls from several powerful people I this country, including my father. I have not talked to him (his father) because I know he will overreact. I have to enjoy my life. I believe I’ll make so many mistakes. It’s not even about the mistake you have done but what you have learnt from it,” he said.
“I don’t want to be a photocopy of my father. There are things he believes in and I respect that because he’s a good parent but I also have my life”
