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.
