Kansiime Anne Dies
Canada-tv3.com alleges that both Ugandan prominent comedian Anne Kansiime and her boyfriend Skylanta had drowned and hence announces them dead.
Nevertheless, the Canadian website posted on their website; “Ugandan celebrities, Kansiime Anne and Skylanta have drowned in Canada in what police are calling a “case of misadventure”.
“The accident took place at Lake Ontario, the Canadian province of Ontario, according to Police statement.
Furthermore, the Ugandan Embassy representative reported to family members that Kansiime Anne was in distress while she and her fiance were fishing. Citing this, she fell in the water and Skylanta jumped into the water to assist her.
Most importantly, the water was a punishing 35 degrees Fahrenheit at the time, only slightly above freezing. As a result, both were pulled from the water but could not be resuscitated.
Nevertheless, the family members report no funeral arrangements are set, as officials of Canada and the Uganda Embassy process the accident.
However, Kansiime Anne has come out and responded to the false rumors in a YouTube video on her channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnmHePQ1C0c&feature=youtu.be) saying:
“Yesterday at around 7 pm I think I died, yeah I and my boyfriend Sky drowned in Canada in some people’s heads. I had taken a nap and I woke up to about 156 missed calls of people I have not heard from since the year started.
Citing this, today I intentionally beat my face, and thanked God for this beautiful Face of mine which is definitely alive.”
In addition to this, “You people if you are not going overreact about the good things happening in my life, may you not dramatically mourn me please, because I will come back for you and remind me that we were not that close.
Banange I’m gonna surprise people when I leave this world, be very very careful, don’t even try my death because I will come back for you.”
“So if you are no willing to celebrate someone, in the little thing they do, do not dramatically go around mourning them. If you don’t call to check on me and come on burial to mourn me I will definitely come for you. I’m a life, am well, I’m in love and to all the Ninja that follow me you knew where I was” States Anne Kansiime.”
Kansiime Anne Wedding
Kansiime says she rushed to get married and that is probably why her marriage with Gerald Ojok failed four years later.
“My plan was to study and graduate, get a job and finally get a man.
Citing this, the two ranged from finances to Kansiime not bearing a child, to infidelity.
Anne Kansiime White Husband
Kansiime Anne refuses a white husband For Her Daughter. Furthermore, she finds the scenario pretty difficult when it comes to her. Prior to this, she considers the case and looks into it from a different point of view.
Citing this, Kansiime does what she does best and what ensues is hilarity when her daughter comes home with the great news that she has found a man from Denmark,
“Usually when an African girl, especially from a poor background, finds a white man for a husband, people find it as a reason to celebrate. This is because the man is considered the solution to her family problems. ” exclaims the comedian.

Kansiime Anne Comedy
Kansiime’s comedy is smart and gender progressive.
Moreover, she twists typical everyday scenarios into situations where women have and use unexpected kinds of power.
Nevertheless, many of her female fans often show her videos to their husbands to bring up topics they don’t feel comfortable bringing up themselves.
“Many are times that I’ve been told my clips tend to show women as the winning team. This is because I tend to always win all the arguments.”
“As a matter of fact,” she emphasizes, “I’m a woman and if I’m not on my side, I can’t figure out which side I’m supposed to be on.”
Most importantly, Kansiime’s fans have even become prone to calling her “The Queen of Comedy.”
Prior to this, there are plenty of things about her that make her different. However, she is a rare example of someone making it in the arts industry.
More often, her fans find her through her sketches on YouTube, which bring in thousands of dollars from advertising.
Nevertheless, she is married but doesn’t have any children though women at her age are expected to have children pretty much as soon as they get married.
Furthermore, one of her jokes is concerns her experience of having to visit her aunt for advice on how to solve the “problem.”
Citing this, these are the directions she got:
“I’m supposed to whistle three times, and run around the house, chanting ‘ojokey-wa-jokey, ojokey–wa-jokey,'” she says. However, she is not sure her marriage would survive it if her husband saw her doing that.
Kansiime Anne Gerald Ojok
Kansiime has revealed why her four-year marriage to ex-husband Gerald Ojok collapsed in mid-2017. Nevertheless, many reasons have also been given to explain why Ugandan celebrity couple Anne Kansiime and Gerald Ojok broke up.
Instead, she says, one of the reasons was because she rushed into it and in the end, it didn’t work.
In an interview, Kansiime for the first time revealed why her husband left their marriage. However, she refuted claims that her marriage hit rock bottom because of infidelity, as has widely been reported.
When asked about her relationship status, this is what she said, ‘’I’m single, available, and my schedule is tight.”
Speaking of their failed marriage, she revealed how she held back the breakup for a while before breaking the news to the world.
‘’Actually, my relationship ended like six months before the whole world knew about it but the pressure kept it going for a while. If you are there and not happy and think you are doing for someone else come here and I’ll congratulate you cause you are wasting your own time.’’ She said.
Playing smart, the entertainer remained mum about the main cause of their divorce touching on money issues.
‘’The fact is that I earn much than him, but I don’t know if that is the reason he left. Therefore, there could be other reasons that I will not get into to,’’ she said.
Whatever the reason may be, Kansiime did not shy away from mentioning that she was actively searching with potential suitors trying their luck.

Anne Kansiime Comedian
Tell me about yourself
Anne Kansiime: I’m an open book, not as rude and scary as the Kansiime in the clips. Anyone who watches my clips know that I’m married. I’m a local woman from Uganda from MPAROKITAKA in Western Uganda. I’m the fourth born of a family of six. I have both my parents; my dad is a retired banker and my mum is a housewife. I have a degree in social science in sociology although I wanted to do music, dance, and drama at the university but my parents wouldn’t let me do that. I don’t really see myself as a comedian but as an entertainer.
Do you find yourself funny?
Anne Kansiime: (laughs) Yes often I catch myself laughing at my own jokes. Sometimes I’m shocked by the things I pull off on stage and I end up laughing at myself.
Would you say that you’ve always been funny?
Anne Kansiime: I could always tell a story better when I was younger; I would make it more dramatic than the actual story. Even something like The Titanic, I could twist that love story to be just plain comedy. I used to do that a lot in high school and most of the kids wanted to hear my version of the story. I’d always lie here and there just to make it hilarious.
Where do you get your sense of humor from?
Anne Kansiime: My parents are extremely funny but only to non-family members. When my friends come over they leave the house in tears because of laughing at the things my parents say. For us who have grown up with them, it’s really normal. In fact, in my family, I am the least funny person.
Do you write your own scripts?
Anne Kansiime: I used to write my own scripts until the demand became extreme and I could not cope so I hired a team of very creative people who write my material. My team is headed by Clotilda who is a Ugandan stand-up comedian. The group is just a bunch of local comedians who are so talented and can understand the craziness that we have to bring to the stage.
Do you think your show could ever be international?
Anne Kansiime: What do you mean? It’s already international. I’ve had six shows in England, in London particularly. I’ve had shows in Zambia, Malawi, Malaysia, Manchester, Birmingham and they were all sold out.
How does the international market identify with the African nature of your comedy?
Anne Kansiime: I don’t like thinking of it like that because initially I was just working for a Ugandan audience and that’s how I became famous. I didn’t even know my shows were online. So basically what I’m saying that there are very many people who are away from home who want a botanical touch and they relate to my shows because after my show they’d be like, “Oh! I remember that!” And then also, most of my clips speak for most shy women around the world who would actually want to say the things that I say but are unable to, so it doesn’t matter how African it is, people can relate.
What is your greatest inspiration?
Anne Kansiime: My mum. Even when I am in low spirits and I have no content or I’m just on a dry spell, I go home for a week and she’s just crazy. If she’d gone professional, she’d be the best comedian IN THE WORLD! She never loses an argument, she’s extremely witty, you can never catch her off guard, she will find something to say, so she definitely inspires me.
Although my greatest support right now comes from my husband because I keep thinking that if he didn’t trust me the way he does, I don’t think I’d be doing as well because he keeps encouraging me to keep doing what I’m doing.
How do you find married life?
Anne Kansiime: It’s not what I thought it would be. You know the stories I heard before I got married, were that married life is hard, it’s tough, you both change; just negative things. So I really thought that marriage was going to be so difficult. I can tell you that I don’t feel married. I married my friend and I enjoy every part of being married to him. My husband is calm and understanding, even when the Kansiime from the clips sneaks up, he just looks at me and then we talk about it later so he knows how to handle me. I feel like I have this friend who I live with, a friend who will be there forever. I think everyone should marry a friend. It’s a beautiful union.
Do you plan on having any children?
Anne Kansiime: HELLO!! Of course!! That’s why I’m working this hard so that by twenty-eight or twenty-nine I can start missing those periods. I really want to get children because I can’t push it too far off because an African man can only wait for so long. At the same time, I’m obsessed with children. I actually have a music album for kids and I’m hoping to launch it sometime this year. I’m doing the videos right now and I want to package it in such a way that when I release the album it will just be spectacular.
What are your thoughts on the Kansiime craze in Kenya?
Anne Kansiime: Honestly Kenyans scared me the first time because I’ve either known Kenyans to love something with all their hearts or to hate it. They don’t know how to be lukewarm so I get a lot of pressure to protect that love that they have so I really try to stay true to who I am. I don’t want to ever disappoint them. Although sometimes people ask, “But Kansiime, why are you always quarreling, quarreling?” and I tell them, “You know if I stop quarreling then my show will be, you can now mess with Kansiime.” I have to guard the image I’ve created.
What is your greatest challenge being a comedian?
Anne Kansiime: Just like every comedian my greatest fear is that one day I’ll wake up and I won’t be funny anymore and people won’t laugh. That’s a thought, if you allow to have it, it will make you lose sleep, zone out and just go into depression. A comedian’s worst fear is death on the stage.
So what do you do when people don’t laugh?
Anne Kansiime: I think that God has just been too good, that hasn’t happened to me yet. If they don’t laugh at what I wanted, I always have a backup line or something up my sleeve. I have to make my audience laugh; even if it means removing my clothes and insulting my legs. THEY HAVE TO LAUGH.
Who does Kansiime symbolize?
Anne Kansiime: By the way, Kansiime is just my mum. The stuff I saw her do when I was young, the way she reacts to situations, the way she can never lose an argument… it’s just my mum. I just exaggerate her actions.
Where do you see yourself ten years from now?
Anne Kansiime: I would be lying if I said I could tell you where I would be in June. Three years ago I never imagined that I would be here. In fact, all that I wanted from life was a guy so that I could get married and have children. So I can’t tell you where I’d be in ten years but I know I’d be a happy woman. I can see myself with fellow comedians, with the likes of Kevin Hart or being the curtain-raiser for any other crazy international comedians.
Do you have plans for the future outside comedy?
Anne Kansiime: I’m working on a movie; I can’t’ talk about it due to confidentiality. I’m praying that it goes well and that people can accept me for being an actor because it’s very hard for comedians to transition to being actors because the audience isn’t used to seeing them playing a serious role. If the project is successful, I will be unstoppable for sure.
What advice would you give aspiring comedians?
Anne Kansiime: The simple truth about how I got here was honestly favored by God. I don’t have a definite formula but I’d say that persistence is key. My creative assistant was on stage every week for two years and for those two years she never had a funny show but because she refused to believe that she wasn’t funny… she kept at it until she became funny. Right now she heads a show called Queens of Comedy and she’s a perfect example of what persistence can do.
I used to work and I’d get fifty dollars per month as a salary. I was staying in a hostel where I had to pay rent of forty dollars and at that time I was in university and everything looked better; shoes looked more attractive, clothes looked more attractive, but I still stuck to that job. I never gave up. People don’t give up on your dreams!!
What are your greatest achievements?
Anne Kansiime: Recently The New Vision (Uganda’s leading newspaper) named me the best celebrity in Uganda. That meant a lot to me because they were communicating that they see what I’m doing and appreciate it. I met the Queen last year and I had dinner with her. She was just lovely. She didn’t say much because she’s very old but she was lovely. I’m also a brand manager for Old Mutual in Kenya which is an insurance firm. There is a clinic in Zambia named after me. It’s called Kansiime Anne Relief that gives medical services to the villagers in particular villages which is something that really touched me. I find myself donating to help this cause because I never thought that would ever happen to me.
What are your parting words?
Anne Kansiime: I’m a clear example of the fact that the moment you become yourself, the world will accept you for who you are. There’s nothing out of the ordinary that I’d do. I’m just a local comedian and I can tell you that local works. Being botanical and going back to our roots works. You see the material that we used to hate so much is now what everyone is wearing. It’s all I wear when I go on stage (The Ankara Clothes). I’m crazy about the Nigerians who have forced their accents down our throats and now we are in love. So people, let’s be ourselves, let’s own our ‘Africanness’ because trust if we all start being proud of who we are, the Kim Kardashians of the world will be out of business.
