Do you show off your undies as part of your career?
No. But I always show off my bra.
Why bra? Is it because you have nice boobs?
Oh! Do I? What I know is that I have a big bust; thatâ€™s why I donâ€™t cover them because when you try to, it is like you are suffocating them; and they will try to come out. Otherwise, it feels good if left free and natural with no pressure.
What is bad about showing off nice knickers?
Our African culture does not encourage it. Mine might be seen accidentally, but it is indecent to intentionally show them off.
Do you think undies have a role to play in relationships?
Very much. Trust me when a woman is sexy, she plays a very big role in any relationship. Donâ€™t you believe if a woman comes for a date in big undies, it will turn off her date? This happens because the big undies will peep and someone is likely to see them. So, the truth is that nice undies are necessary in relationships.
What type then is best?
In most cases G-strings and thongs because they expose the flesh and make you sexier. Besides, they are always associated with love - not necessarily sex.
What is your formula for love?
I respect peopleâ€™s decisions. But I believe if you open up, the relationship becomes easy and smooth.
Are you married?
No. I am single but not searching. I believe it is not yet time.
What sort of man would you consider for a husband?
I would want a man who respects me. I donâ€™t believe in money; what matters is respect and love. I would rather settle with a peasant who respects and loves me, because everybody can make money.
Would you make the first move?
I wouldnâ€™t mind. But in Uganda if you do, the man may disrespect you. But I can ask him out for a friendly chat.
What donâ€™t you like about men?
They tell lies a lot even over funny little things. And I just donâ€™t know why men cannot keep one wife; they think having so many women.
