The rumour mill is always rolling in Kampala. But with it, comes fallacies. Leaving in their wake, confusion and mixed feelings for many reputable brands. The latest involves Silk Liquid.
When Elvis Sekyanzi expanded his Club franchise to Naalya, rumour-peddlers started alleging that the Bugolobi based Liquid Silk was closing because Elvis Sekyanzi was choking on debts and couldn’t handle the two outlets. He has since denied the rumour, branding it as unfortunate and baseless. “It is business as usual and we have no plans for closing,” Sekyanzi revealed.
He is concerned about the intentions of the rumour peddlers. “That is totally wrong. Where do people get those stories? Liquid Silk Bugolobi is still afloat, and it will remain so for a long time. We are not shutting down anytime soon.
Our customers come from different places. We just wanted to bring the same unique experience our customers get in Bugolobi, to a place near the customers in that region of the city. It has nothing to do with those rumours. It is simply adhering to our customers’ demands,” he relayed.
Last week, the opening of the Naalya franchise attracted myriad of excited crowds, it was an instant hit with patrons.
