Flavia Tumusiime Big Brother

In her book, “30 days of Flavia Tumusiime” she wrote:

“So in 2011, I won the competition to become Uganda’s first Channel O VJ. I was so happy, then became overwhelmed at how big a platform it was. We were 5 Vjs for the continent and in a team building meeting in south Africa, our boss asked for our strengths, she intended to get us opportunities that would help us grow bigger in the industry. Everyone said their strength except me, because I didnt know what it was.

I came back to Uganda and while at capital, one of my colleagues said…”now that you are on channel O, toloba, make sure bakulaba and you leave a mark kwegamba you even push obele ku bigbrother Africa” lol he is dramatic.

Anyway, I told him that I was a small fish and no one would skip all the choices of presenters, to let me get on Bigbrother Africa. Two months later, they were in meetings looking for a guest host and my boss suggested me, and as you saw in 2012, I ended up chosen.

One day I asked my boss why I was chosen out of curiosity and she said to me..” they looked at all your work and felt you were talented and a new face, and also, one of the directors of the show worked with you on Guinness football challenge and he said you were professional and a pleasure to work with”.
