Mpaka Records CEO Ykee Benda revealed why his past relationship stalled just a few months after proposing to his girlfriend. He wants his next relationship to be as private as possible.

Once bitten, twice shy – the saying is turning out true for Wycliff Tugume a.k.a Ykee Benda who has taken his lessons about love and relationships overtime.

On a lovely evening of April 5th, 2017 Ykee Benda put a ring on longtime lover Julie Batenga’s finger as he proposed marriage to her. The two had allegedly dated for about nine years.

The love affair did not last long enough to see the couple walk down the aisle as they separated nine months later on mutual grounds.

While speaking in an interview on NTV Uganda, Ykee Benda revealed that putting his relationship in public partly caused the breakup because it created a lot of pressure.

Since he had just began his music career, it was too hard for him to juggle the two roles and he decided to let the love his life go.

I put it out there because even the proposal and the romantic dinner were allover the place. It should have been more private because publicizing the relationship created so much pressure on both sides.
