A few days ago we exclusively revealed on this website how NTV news anchor Faridah Nakazibwe, who is also the host of the ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ programme, had agreed to raise singer Bruno Kiggundu aka Bruno K’s daughter Briella Kiggundu, following the demise of her mother Rachael Nasasira.
We revealed that after Nasasira passing on, her relatives wanted to take custody of Briella and raise her but Bruno refused, reasoning that she would find a mother in Nakazibwe.
Although many Ugandans didn’t believe it then, we can ably reveal that Briella is nowadays staying at Nakazibwe’s crib and she has been spending the past few weeks with her daughters; playing, eating and sleeping together as all sisters do.
It is not clear however whether Bruno will hire a maid to nurse Briella now that Nakazibbwe’s daughters are back to school, although what is certain, according to our Moles is that she is bound to spend a long time at the TV star’s home, where Bruno often visits to check on them.
It should be noted that although rumours about Bruno dating Nakazibwe has been going around for some time, the two have never come out to either deny or admit the allegations.
Nakazibwe has been living as a single mother for a long time having separated with the father of her daughters identified as engineer Dan Nankunda several years back.
She was later said to be dating tycoon Moses Kigongo of the Mosa Courts Apartments but their fling didn’t last long after his then wife Olive Kigongo raised hell for both of them and she ended up divorcing him.
When Nakazibwe realized that she couldn’t handle the fire that had been lit by Kigongo’s wife, she opted out of the affair and hooked up with Dr. Omar Ssali, who is based in the United Arab Emirates.
They dated for a short time before getting married in 2016 at a private wedding that was held in Dubai and attended by a few close family members.
However, her wedding with Ssali didn’t last long because they developed marital woes that were fueled by former NTV star Justine Nameere, which ended up in their separation in 2018 when she got rid of her wedding ring.
Following her separation with Ssali, Nakazibwe lived a lonely life for a long time until 2020 when word about her being deeply involved with Bruno K started surfacing.
