Banange! Lydia Jazmine and Ykee Benda's Relationship Was Just About Beer
Over a month ago, Ugandan musicians, Ykee Benda and Lydia Jazmine released a romantic song showing off each other that caught many people unawares.
The two musicians before releasing the song posted pictures of themselves in ungodly positions and worst of all, there was this one where the two had locked lips (kissing).
So when things entered kissing, we knew the two were damn serious with whatever they were up to. Given we were also still in lockdown, the two musicians got the maximum attention they wanted and this is how congratulatory messages poured in from all angles.
Some Ugandans were however very hesitant to congratulate the new couple upon their new marriage because of a similar stunt that was played by local actress, Diana Nabatanzi when she faked a Kukyala ceremony just to promote her upcoming movie.
But it ended in tears
Ykee and Lydia's suprise relationship ended and I can confirm it ended in premium Tears, this is after our viba sources established that it was built on lies.
The two were already high on "Banange" beer and were therefore lying to each other about their feelings due to the obvious influence of alcohol.
Things became worse when we found out that they were just shooting a video for their new song but Ykee Benda in a local interview confessed having enjoyed the kiss Lydia gave him in the video and said it was the best moment of his life on set.
The song was just a beer advert
Soon after the song's video was released sometime in August, everyone was impressed with the story line where by a poor mechanic, Ykee Benda in a local garage was vibing a rich client, Lydia Jazmine.
The sharp Ykee Makanika (luganda word for mechanic) then convinced Lydia Jazmine all the way to marriage that happened in the song with a traditional kwanjula ceremony being held.
But on closer inspection of the video,there is this beer everyone was consuming all the way from the kwanjula's main celebrants to the guests.
They were all taking the exquisite "Banange" beer which according to Viba sources, sponsored the entire audio and video production of the love ballad.
About "Banage" beer
Banange is a fine, locally produced Ugandan beer that was founded in 2017 by two white people (bazungu) as we like to call them.
Adam and Pall are from Canada and Iceland respectively and have both been in Uganda for some years now.
They formed the beer after becoming friends at River Nile in Jinja which they had come to tour
Banange, a Luganda word which means "oh my gosh" in English when also converted into context of this beer, means the beer is so sweet to quench your lust for beer on any given day.
The artwork displayed on the beer bottles themselves is also another marvel to look at because it oozes creativity and some beer drinkers a.k.a "drankos" said this automatically means the beer is sweet and that they cannot wait to drown in it.
