Know your celeb: Who is Hellen Lukoma?
Hellen Lukoma is one of the most multi-talented people in the Ugandan entertainment industry.
With Kaka, they have two children.
Hellen Lukoma was born on April 23, 1989 (TBC), and hails from Makindye. She attended Shimon Primary School and Lubiri Senior Secondary School, before joining Makerere University Business School to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Internal Business.
She started singing in school and church.
But professionally it was with Obsessions, which was founded by renowned producer and Fenon Records boss Steve Jeans.
At Obsessions, she sang, danced and acted.
She joined the singing group while in S.6 ‘vacation’ and left when she was joining university.
It was during her time at Obsessions that the song Jangu was released.
At some point during her break from music, she worked in sales at New Vision. This was while at university. Her internship was at a bank.
She then realised the corporate world was not for her and reunited with Brenda Nambi, formerly with her in Obsessions, to form HBO Toxic.
Ali Alibhai, the Talent Africa founder, supported them.
But concentrating on music became hard because Lukoma landed a gig as an actress in The Hostel, the TV series that aired on NTV, and Brenda Nambi was seeing progress in the fashion world.
At some point, Lukoma also operated a fashion store in Mabirizi Complex and run a show called Genesis Fashion Show.
Hellen Lukoma continues to sing and act in different television shows.
