Songbird Nina Akankunda aka Nina Roz and dancehall star cum music producer Andrew Ojamba alias Daddy Andre are currently living as man and wife, after they held a magnificent Kukyala (traditional engagement ceremony) over the weekend.
However, although several fellow musicians, who included Daddy Andre’s ex-lover Angela Katatumba wished Andre and Nina Roz a happy relationship and congratulated them, the only musician who significantly didn’t wish them anything good is Sheebah Karungi aka Queen Sheebah Swag Mama.
Despite the fact that Sheebah and Nina Roz were very close a few years back, the Swag Mama shocked many of her fans after she refused to congratulate her fellow musicians upon reaching such a great milestone in their relationship.
But that didn’t come as a surprise to some of our Moles, who reveal that Sheebah and Nina Roz have been beefing for a very long time.
Genesis Of their Beef
According to our Moles, Sheebah and Nina Roz’s beef started some time back before they both joined Jeff Kiwanuka’s Team No Sleep.
During that time, Sheebah was a struggling artiste doing a solo thing with her girls in Makindye who were all struggling musicians. Among them was Nina Roz, Keko Town and others.
However, it is said that at one time, Sheebah, who was very close to Keko, fell out badly with her after she accused her of allegedly neglecting her to be with other girls.
It is said that one of the girls that caused the bitter split between Sheebah and Keko was Nina Roz and because of the way Nina took care of Sheebah, Keko had no other option but to back off and start hating on them.
So Nina and Sheebah enjoyed themselves for a long time without any discontent between them until when Sheebah met another babe only identified as Lil Samo, with whom she became very close and during their indulgences she forgot all about Nina Roz.
Moles reveal that Nina Roz, who was then an upcoming musician, became so frustrated and heartbroken especially after she was barred access to Sheebah’s then rented crib in Makindye.
She was so disappointed by Sheebah that during an interview years later. Nina said thus; “We can no longer be friends because our issues are deep. I know she hates me so much. She needs to apologize.” She added that ‘they have issues that can only be solved by both of them not anyone else.’
Sheebah, Nina Beef At TNS
After succumbing to her fate and realising that she could never separate Sheebah from her new Girl Friend, Nina Roz had to find her own level and try to hustle and build her music career at least.
That was when she approached Jeff Kiwa and begged him to sign her up onto his Team No Sleep (TNS) label, where Sheebah and Pallaso had already been signed up.
But while at TNS, Sheebah and Nina Roz renewed their beef, whereby the she (Sheebah) accused Nina of copying her style and vocals.
It was not long before a deadly supremacy war erupted between the two musicians, which was later to force Sheebah to distance herself from TNS and many of the singers there, because, Moles say, she was about to get physical with Nina Roz.
Despite their beef however, Nina Roz went ahead to make it as one of the biggest female musicians in Uganda, who has been turned into brand name by Jeff Kiwa through his TNS, although she vows never to forgive Sheebah because of what he did to her.
