Stella Nante: I am not trying to become the next thing

Stella Nante

INTRODUCING STELLA NANTE:  An actor, director, producer and now TV host, Nante is not entirely a new face, especially for those who love Ugandan local content. She was recently unveiled as the new host of NTV’s Mwasuze Mutya show and although she is aware she is stepping into big shoes, she says she is not here to fill anyone’s shoes but rather be the next Stella Nante, writes Andrew Kaggwa.

When both NTV and Spark TV’s social media pages carried banners of Spice Diana as the new host of NTV’s show, Mwasuze Mutya, many people knew something was not right. Not that Hajarah Diana Namukwaya does not have what it takes to host a show such as Mwasuze Mutya, but as an active artiste, it is hard to imagine her waking up five days a week to have conversations.

It was almost impossible.

And the online streets were right, Spice Diana was not the host but the guest. However, she was a guest who also got a chance to introduce a new host. The host was Stella Nante.

“It was a wonderful experience doing that first show, especially being introduced by Spice Diana,”  Nante says

Spice and I have a history together, as she was our neighbour in the past. When she had just started pursuing music, we invited her to my sister’s graduation. We did not think she would show up, but she did and even performed. “It was great being introduced by her because we have both come a long way in our careers.”
