He’s made a name, he’s made a brand…and above all, he’s got a legion of loyal viewers. From his humble beginnings at Record TV, using curtains as his background while hosting his “Katogo” show. From leaps to bounds Douglas Lwanga grew his viewership.
Just like how God doesn’t forget His own, NTV Uganda would later come knocking…poaching DAAGA (like his fans call him) to join the biggest TV station at the time. Douglas’ star even shone brighter. He moved along with his vierwers and even grew bigger while hosting NTV the Beat for the past five years. The crowds are evident in his “Purple Party” themed event.
Now, the latest Vibe in the Pearl is that the humble DAAGA is joining NBS TV. He’ll be joining the likes of MC Kats, Anita Fabiola, Solomon Sserwanja, Raymond Mujuni who all dumped the NMG owned TV station for Kim Kariisa’s NBS.
Douglas, we are told, will be hosting the After 5 entertainment show together with MC Kats, Dj Roja and VJ Mercy. Other sources however intimate that MC Kats will be moved to the Saturday Hit Maker show and Douglas will takeover After 5 that happens Monday to Friday.
This will be a big win for NBS TV as Douglas always moves with a legion of his viewers. He was replaced by Sheila Gashumba and Crystal Panda at NTV the Beat.
