By Kampala Sun writer.
It is the stuff of the movies, but if it is indeed true, Jack Pemba has been stung into showing he is the money-bags he professes to be. Just after he landed from Dubai, Pemba was pictured giving $600 (sh2.1m) to a kid for pocket money in a video that has gone viral.
The latest we hear is that he has set a benchmark and wants to be the most expensively dressed individual at the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs), which are on this at Serena Hotel’s Victoria Hall.
Jack Pemba recently injected Shs100m as sponsorship in the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards, and he wants to look the part.
The moneybags has just returned to Dubai where he went on a shopping spree for a $6,000 (Shs21.6m) suit, $1,500 (Shs5.4m) Louis Vuitton shoes, a $1,000 (Shs3.6m) Buggio snake skin belt and $5,000 (Shs18m) on a dental procedure for sparkingly white teeth to flash a killer smile for the cameras.
The ASFAs that are on this Friday are a big platform for Pemba as his wife Sheebah Kassami will showcase her SKP fashion label.
South African designer David Tlale, Nigerian designer Mai Atafo and Tanzania’s Sheria Ngowi will also showcase their designs at the event.
