Inside Greenade, "Sheila Gashumba" and Rickman Fight last Night
Last night, a simmering dispute between musicians Grenade Official and Rickman Manrick took a dangerous turn at the popular La Terezza bar in Kololo,Kampala.
The altercation is believed to have been triggered by Grenade Official's lingering sentiments towards socialite Sheilah Gashumba, which reportedly date back to a tumultuous romantic history between the two.
According to eyewitnesses present at the event, tensions flared as Grenade Official repeatedly approached the table where Sheilah Gashumba and her boyfriend, Rickman Manrick, were seated. Despite attempts to diffuse the situation, the animosity eventually erupted into a physical brawl, with Grenade hurling a glass towards Rickman Manrick, resulting in severe injuries to his lips.
Prompt action was taken to rush the injured artist to Nakasero Hospital, where he received immediate medical attention, including stitches for his wounds. Meanwhile, Grenade Official made a swift getaway using a Boda Boda to evade capture.
The incident has reignited a troubled romantic history between Sheilah Gashumba and Grenade Official, which allegedly ended on a bitter note. Although Sheilah has publicly denied dating Grenade Official, asserting that she was in a past relationship with the now-deceased socialite Gods Plan five years ago, their close associates from that time have revealed that the two were, in fact, romantically involved.
Taking to social media, Sheilah Gashumba expressed her dismay at the incident, condemning Grenade Official's lack of restraint and suggesting that his behavior may be linked to substance abuse. She uploaded a distressing video of Rickman Manrick, visibly battered and awaiting medical treatment at the hospital.
In a passionate plea, Sheilah Gashumba praised Rickman Manrick for his humility and respect, highlighting his infrequent involvement in the party scene. She also announced her intention to pursue legal action against Grenade Official, vowing to see the case through to its resolution. Her hope is that this incident serves as a wake-up call for musicians to treat each other with greater respect and dignity, thus upholding the reputation of Uganda's music industry.
Responding to the incident on social media, Grenade Official claimed that Rickman and his associates had threatened him with violence, including breaking his arms and legs, alleging that the feud was sparked by Rickman's jealousy over Sheilah Gashumba.
As the feud continues to unfold, netizens are bracing themselves for a rollercoaster of updates and developments in this ongoing saga.
