Sheilah Gashumba has had a strong relationship with some Nigerian musicians, including Ruger and Adekunle Gold.

In 2022, she said both artistes would perform in Kampala and they sure did, with Ruger coming twice.

That same year she said she was overseeing both musicians’ public relations in East Africa though it’s not clear if that relationship still exists.

When Ruger, real name Michael Adebayo, came to Kampala for the first time in 2022, there were even rumours that they had an affair because of how close they were. She even flew with him to Rwanda.

Ruger, who is known for top hits like Girlfriend, Dior, Asiwaju and Snapchat -- performed in Kampala on February 14 at the Big Brunch which was hosted at Dungu Resort Munyonyo.

Then he returned to perform alongside the late South African rapper Costa Titch at an event organised by Kash Events at the Garden City Rooftop in Kampala on December 31.

Adekunle Gold performed in Uganda in July 2022 at the Club Dome Concert.
