Who gave how much to MC Kats as he turned a new chapter of his life?

Through a tweet, Edwin Katamba a.k.a MC Kats’ workmate Sheilah Gashumba started a “Shs500,000 birthday challenge” to celebrate his birthday on June 1st.

The NBS TV After 5 show co-presenter asked each member in the entertainment fraternity to gift MC Kats with Shs500k to thank him for his contribution to the industry.

What started as a joke later developed into a reality as several celebrities including artists, media personalities, managers, promoters, among others heeded to the call.

Personalities like Kasuku, Pallaso, Lydia Jazmine, Fik Fameica among others all gifted Kats with mobile money and cash ranging from 500k to as much as USD700.
