Kampala, Uganda-16/06/14— Sunday 15th June went in to the books of records as a day to remember with the highly rated kick-off of the Showbiz League (#ShowbizLeague) and initiative of!

In a much-anticipated match, Gagamel Phamily reloaded demolished a young, smart, attractive free-flowing HiPipo football team, 6-1, at Kampala Parents Sports Grounds Bukoto.  The much experienced Gagamel team racked up five second-half goals using counter attacks and set pieces to win the match that was one all at half time.

The match coincided with the unveiling of a world class second HiPipo Music Awards (#HMA2014) magazine. The 54 pages magazine has a comprehensive coverage of #HMA2014; including regional tours and conferences, behind the scenes, red carpet reception, awards gala night, plus post awards reactions from musicians, fans, and media among others.

While launching the magazine, CEO, Innocent Kawooya re-affirmed HiPipo Music Awards’ commitment to propel Ugandan and East Africa’s music industry to great heights with music, truth, fairness and keeping to the rules as the only benchmarks/winning criteria.

“When we started HiPipo Music Awards in 2012/13, many doubted, many abused, many ignored and so many took us as jokers. But we knew we had good intentions for the industry considering that we had served the music fraternity for 5 years as the ultimate online entertainment source,” Innocent reckoned, adding:

“2013, we did well and in 2014, we pleasantly surprised both friends and enemies in equal measures. The event was perfect, well produced and much published. After such success, we can’t be brought down by baseless allegations and cheap talk. 2014 theme was ‘The Fans Decide’ and we kept to that. This magazine is a continuation of the Awards project. More activities will take place in a few weeks to come.”

The magazine is officially out, costing Ushs.50, 000 and can only be got on order. However, you can get yourself a free softcopy and see all you missed by downloading it from this link; (
