What does Ekitoobero mean?
Here I was singing food. I think you see how the lady whom am using as my wife is cooking. It’s about tasty food that my wife has cooked for me.
Is she the one who cooked his delicious-looking food?
I rented someone to cook for us because it’s a long journey to here in Entebbe and I did not want my people to stay hungry. And, the sauce pan they used to cook this food is the same that we are using in this video shooting.
Why did you choose this place in Entebbe? Aren’t there places in Kampala you would use with such a kitchen without having to travel?
I wanted a separate environment, besides, that’s what the script was saying. We are not only shooting from one place, but also having shots in waters so I wanted to do it at once.
I can see you have changed clothes thrice.
You see, I always want to be different from others and if I am to use one type of wear in all videos, it would be dull. And besides, they are of different locations. I want the video to have a variety of appearances. The African wear is by Kyaligonza Fashions.
How did you come up with the song?
It isn’t mine. I re-did it. The original is Sammy Kasule’s.
You have a main character and the other a queen dancer. Where did you get them from?
Someone connected me to them; they have rehearsed for two weeks, so they know what they are doing.
