Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi, also known as Barbie, advised girls living the city girl lifestyle to think hard and long about the future.

"These days there is something that's been disturbing me. It's about young girls who are old enough to work but they don't want to work," said Barbie in a video seen by this reporter.

"If God gave you hands, a brain, and legs to work, you have to. I've heard something saying that 'be beautiful and keep quiet'. Beauty is not enough. You can't eat it. You've to work. Because being beautiful is not enough."

Bob Wine, who was close to her, chimed in: "In short, just work and keep quiet."

Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi is also always using her social media platforms to share some life hacks.

"These are the types of people you should not get close to in your life," Barbie, the wife of singer and politician Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, has said.

"If there are people you spend most of your time with, but what they talk about, what they do, and how they think doesn't make you feel like you should be like them, get a new circle."

At 38 and being married to a rich and celebrated figure, Barbie, who was raised in a village in Ntungamo, has possibly met people from all walks of life and she knows a thing or two about meaningful friendships and leveraging them for success.

Barbie runs a non-profit called Caring Hearts Uganda that is involved in a number of activities including teaching adolescent girls to make and use reusable sanitary towels, constructing facilities to improve sanitation and hygiene in schools, and conducting counseling sessions in schools on topics like HIV/AIDS and drug abuse.

They also run programs to facilitate talent promotion in schools through sports, dance, and drama.
