He might be Uganda’s ugliest man but Sebabi, real name Godfrey Baguma is a ladies’ man. In fact he has just fathered another child, a pretty bouncing baby girl.
Sebabi, 47, got married to Kate Namanda, 30, in 2013 and she has given birth to his eighth child! Yes, Sebabi’s brood now stands at eight and counting.
“She liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man,” he says.
Sebabi then met Namanda who was 18 by then, through his aunt who played go between. “I stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me,” he recalls.
“She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later,” he recounts.
“I told her that I didn’t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to live me,” he narrates.
Lucky for him, she chose to stay and in 2013 they held a wedding ceremony that put his hometown Kyazanga, in Lwengo District at a standstill. Guests at the wedding had to pay Shs4,000 to attend the reception and see the woman Sebabi got married to.
Sebabi is a former cobbler who now uses his unique features to earn a living. He appears at events as Uganda’s Ugliest Man just for people to see him, but he took it a step further by joining Amarula Family and he even started singing, because he doesn’t want to go on stage for people to just stare at him.
