time. Godfrey Baguma, known as Sebabi – which means ‘ugliest of them

The 47-year-old married his second wife Kate Namanda, 30, in 2013.
Speaking to KFM, he said:
caught her cheating with another man and I assured her our relationship
was over. She liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her
that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man.”
Sebabi then met Namanda, who was 18 at the time, through his aunt who played go between. He said:
stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I
didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would
definitely advise her to leave me. She left me when she was six months
pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back
two months later.
I told her that I didn’t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to live me.
she chose to stay and in 2013 they held a wedding ceremony that put his
hometown Kyazanga, in the Lwengo District of Uganda, at a standstill.
Guests at the wedding had to pay 4,000 Ugandan shillings (about 70p) to
attend the reception and see the woman Sebabi married, MirrorUK reports.
Sebabi is a former cobbler who now uses his unique features to earn a
living. He appears at events as Uganda’s Ugliest Man just for people to
see him, but he took it a step further by launching a singing career.
He says he doesn’t want to go on stage for people to just stare at him.
