To realise her ambition, her father, Frank Gashumba, paid Radio and Weasel to write for her a song.

"When I was younger, my dad paid Radio and Weasel to write me a song," Sheilah said in an interview.

However, she said nothing ever materialised, but she was able to meet the Goodlyfe crew at the house in Makindye, a Kampala division.

While she never got to become a singer, Sheilah Gashumba has played a significant role in promoting Ugandan music and even run public relations for some big artsites across the continent.

A celebrated media personality, Sheilah Gashumba was born in Nsambya Hospital and her parents are Frank Gashumba and Christine Tina Mukuza

She went to Little Angels Nursery School and Taibah International School (P.2 - P.6).

It was at Taibah that she met a teacher who pushed her to get involved in emceeing, giving speeches, etc., and other activities that would nurture he media career.

Her father wanted her to ace P.7, and decided it was best to complete her P.7 from City Parents’ School.

For secondary education, Sheilah Gashumba went to Mt. St. Mary's Namagunga, Makerere College School, Taibah College, Kabojja International School and Galaxy International School.

She landed her first TV at WBS when she was eight years old.

After a while, she took a break because her father wasn't sure if she should stay in the TV business.

Then on her Sweet 16 birthday, T-Nation, a program on NTV, was invited to the party and she met the producer who offered her a gig

From T-Nation, she was moved to NTV the Beat. Sheilah Gashumba has since worked with a number of different media companies, including NRG Radio, Next Media and South Africa’s Honey TV.
