People know me for acting rather than being Miss Uganda – Ellah

Back in action: It has been years since we last saw Stella Nantumbwe, aka Ellah, in action and just when we thought she had chosen a different path in life, she is back. The actress says she agreed to the script and later role in Sabotage because it was unique and made an effort to address real issues without being preachy. Andrew Kaggwa writes.

When was the first time you heard about Stella Nantumbwe?

For many people, it was when she became Miss Uganda that her grace, poise, confidence, and outspokenness were hard to ignore; she was a queen without a crown.

And she eventually got it – one of the few who did not get Ugandans criticising the way she looked.

Later, there was more about Stella Nantumbwe, the first Miss Uganda, who did not get to hand over her crown, not because she had been demoted but because she was out there representing Uganda as a Big Brother Africa contestant.

The final edition of Big Brother Africa, alias Big Brother Hotshots.

Stella, who on the show was referred to as Ellah, was just the second Ugandan housemate, the other was Esther Namuddu. That girl was something else that she even got on the nerves of singer Bebe Cool, who went on Facebook and asked Ugandans not to vote for her so that she could get eliminated.

The controversy almost started a world war among fans, from those accusing Bebe Cool of not being patriotic to those who agreed with his assessment. Anyway, neither Ellah nor Esther won, but it is only one of them we have been invested in since then.

That person is none other than Ellah, who has continued to make a name for herself in the entertainment industry. Despite not winning the show, she has managed to build a successful career for herself.
