At the time, she says, she had been picked to sit in for Miles Rwamiti who was feeling unwell. Her boss, Hajjat Hadijah Nabukenya liked her and gave her a chance to do the show.

Namulidwa says one of the stories she did was about Bebe Cool, and the brewing chaos inside Gagamel.

She had been friends with Eighton Sente, one of the Kiwoko Boys duo who personally gave her a scoop that he was leaving Gagamel.

When she broke the news, the 'Mbozi Za Mwalwa' singer was furious.

Bebe Cool called Kabushenga (then Vision Group CEO). He even came down to Bukedde and demanded that I be fired because I was spreading false rumors,” Namulidwa narrated on her YouTube Channel

"Thankfully, my boss Hajjat Hadija Nabukenya was not the kind to be pressured into firing staff, so she defended me. Besides, I had all the proof about my story and I showed it to them and Bebe Cool backed down.”

At the time of her retirement from Bukedde TV in 2020, Namulindwa had become a household name through some of her beloved shows at the station including “Oluyimba lwo,” “Ekyenkya,” “Full Doze.
