The frame for a perfect picture in the Ugandan music industry has for ages been designed around controversy. Spice Diana has had a fair share of those in 2018 and we look at the top six.
A good voice alone cannot do much in Uganda’s music industry. To become a big star you have to trend, for both the good and bad reasons. It’s the system.
At times when a musician wants to promote a new song/concert, they will make sure a controversy pops out of nowhere then try to ‘clear’ their name later.
Spice Diana has been one of the most trending artistes in Uganda. It has come in equal measures for her music, sense of fashion and of course the various stunts. It has all kept her shining.
Let’s take a look at the top six from her collection of many more;

In February, while appearing on NTV’s ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ show, Spice Diana shocked many when she repeatedly revealed that she got 32 aggregates in her A Level final exams.
Just a few days after the video went viral, she hit studio and recorded a collaboration with Weasel titled ‘32′ which turned into an instant hit on the airwaves. She also opened up a recording studio and named it 32 Records.
