Muhangi also confirmed that he will manage the entire entertainment aspect of the pageant.
“It’s official, I am the talent manager/ liaison for Gisha Production Inc, the mother company of The Miss Uganda Canada Initiative. I am charged with identifying the right talent for the event. This partnership will also go beyond the event and help create avenues that will help promote Ugandan talents in Canada,” stated Muhangi.
Bettina Tumuhaise, the Brand and Marketing Manager for the Miss Uganda Canada Initiative, said the partnership with Comedy Store Uganda is an assurance that the event will have a proper Ugandan entertainment touch.
“Our wish was for us to have a pageant that is almost 100% Ugandan, and our partnership with Comedy Store is a sure way of achieving our desire. We’re very excited that Muhangi accepted to host the event and we can’t wait to unveil the line-up of entertainers for the event,” she said.
