Henry Tigan now a Ssalongo


By Hussein Kiganda

In this lock down, one may think that some celebrities agreed with one another to surprise us with children so that we forget about the absence of bars and clubs. As if to copy from Juliana, other celebrities like Weasel, Crystal Panda and now Henry Tigan have been blessed in this period. Unlike Juliana’s baby who is called Taj, we are not yet certain which names these babies will get. Whether they are names related to Covid19, the lock down or struggle for life amidst panic.

Well, a few hours ago, Henry Tigan took to his social media handles telling his fans that from then, he had become a Ssalongo,which means father of twins, in Buganda culture. We are not yet certain when the dancing for these twins, as regards culture will take place. However, since he is a staunch Christian, this may not happen, but rather in the praise of Almighty God.

“Thanks for your prayers bamikwano, it was not easy in the theatre, but finally God blessed me with twins, kati nze Ssalongo with Capital S,” Henry wrote.

He was congratulated by several friends of his including Balaam.

“Congratulations bro Henry,” Balaam Barugahara wrote.

“Congs brother blessings,” Jozey king replied.

“Congratulations to the brand new Ssalongo with capital S…,” Emily Kidandi wrote.

A few months ago, the Webale mukama singer had started a band with his close friend Chagga and hadn’t it been the Covid19, it would be far. The two would perform every Friday in a certain place in Bukoto and the performances were always live. The singer is behind new songs like Africa and Taliyo which he sang with lugaflow rapper Kian Banks.

We congratulate Henry Tigan for having entered into the world of twins.
