“With the price of life these days, you’ve got to get everything for free you can,”the late Carl Ransom Rogers, an American psychologist and among the founders of the humanistic approach in psychology once said.
Experts say Carl may have exaggerated a little bit, but his underlying message rings true. After all, who doesn’t love free stuff?
Perhaps this is the kind of thinking some of musician Sheebah Karungi’s fans had when she posted the price tag for different cruises on her boat.
According to the Yolo singer, the prices for a cruise on the luxurious boat she acquired at a fortune early this year range from Shs750,000 for an hour cruise to Shs3 million for a four-hour cruise.
However, this was not received well by some of her social media fans who claimed the cruise was too expensive given that the economy is generally not doing well following the Covid-19 induced lockdown.

“But even the expensive Dubai as they say a boat cruise for 1hr is 200 AED approximately 200,000/= are you guys serious or u made a mistake by adding an extra 0?” Freddie De Genius.
