25 years after marrying world’s ugliest man, having 8 kids, woman speaks (Video)

Published

When Kate Namanda introduced Godfrey Baguma, the world’s ugliest man, to her family as the man she wanted to spend her life with, they rejected him outrightly, saying he was too ugly to become a part of them. Her friends mocked her, saying that the love of her life was a mismatch.

However, she was in love and so she ignored all the negative energy. They went ahead to live together and started having children because Kate’s family had refused to give their blessing to her marriage to Baguma.

After having four children, the couple thought it prudent to make their union official, so they performed a white wedding in 2013.

Over a period of twenty-five years, they have had eight children, with the first one being a 28-year-old lady, while the last one is just seven months old.

Speaking in an interview with Afriman TV about her marriage to Baguma over two and a half decades, Kate recounted the hurdles she had to cross to make the union see the light of day.

“My family told me he is too ugly and they don’t want him in our family. It wasn’t easy because the whole family was up against me but I told them we will live together whether they like it or not. Because they did not agree, I moved in with him until we had four children before our marriage was blessed,” she said.

As to what convinced her to fall in love with Baguma to the extent of abandoning her family, she said that she saw honesty and genuineness in him at their talking stage.

Baguma, also known as Ssebabi (Ugliest of all), a Ugandan, was born as a normal child in 1973, but as he grew up, he started developing a tumour that deformed his head in a way that made him look odd.

He was diagnosed with a rare condition called fibrodysplasia, which affects the growth and placement of his cells and tissue. His health can be managed with the correct medication, and fortunately, reports say his condition cannot be transmitted to his children, and none of them has had any deformity so far.

He is a musician, a comedian, and a cobbler whose main source of living is to mend people’s shoes for a fee.

He came into the global limelight in 2002 when he took part in the World’s Ugliest Man contest, beating other contestants across the world to become the ugliest man in the world.

Kate revealed that when her husband was declared the winner of the contest, she could not hide her joy.

According to her, Baguma was not rich when they met and still is not a wealthy man, so it cannot be said that she was swayed by money to be with him. Rather, it is the genuine love they both share that has bonded them over the years.

Theheute-

Capital Hotels Plc, owners of the Abuja-based luxury hotel, Sheraton, said 22 Hospitality Limited has procured 66.1 per cent of its outstanding shares in exchange for a controlling stake in the company.

A purchase of a company’s total issued shares crossing the 50 per cent threshold is deemed a buyout. Capital Hotels has not posted annual profit in the last two years.

The transaction is the end of a series of off-market deals conducted for months, and means Hans Gremlin Nigeria Limited will be yielding to 22 Hospitality Limited the ownership crown it had worn for two decades.

“All the required regulatory approvals have been received for the transaction,” Capital Hotels said in a statement posted on the Nigerian Exchange’s website.

Capital Hotels set out earlier in the year to raise capital for, what it said, was the renovation of the hotel.

The board sought to approach it by way of rights issue and made a proposal during an emergency general meeting in April to sell new shares to existing shareholders at N7 per share at a time a unit was selling for N3.19 in the market.

A refusal by shareholders to endorse the offer for fear it would erode their rights meant the board turned to private placement as a second option. In all, 1,611,995,510 shares were allotted to 22 Hospitality Hospital at N7 per unit when that was concluded, totaling N11.3 billion.

The company’s share price, which had been stuck at N3.19 for at least seven months to 23rd May, jumped to N3.40 that date but has not moved again ever since.

Altogether, the new owner’s holding in the firm translates to 2,090,199,140 ordinary shares.

Bank of Industry Limited, Ministry of Finance Incorporated, Nigeria Re-insurance Corporation and Continental Energy Resources Limited are among the substantial shareholders of Capital Hotels, its 2021 audited financial statement shows.
