Jack Pemba returned to Uganda after spending months abroad. He immediately made headlines when he announced the deal with Brian Ahumuza.

“I am going to give Shs100m to the Abryanz Style and fashion awards but I’m expecting to increase the sponsorship the next week. Fashion is a big thing in Uganda. I told my friend Brian that if he put my name and my company on board, there are opportunities for more sponsorship,” said Jack Pemba when he attended the nominees party of 2017 Abryanz Style and Fashion awards.

Jack Pemba’s agreement with Brian Ahumuza was that his wife was to showcase her SKP (Sheba Kasami Pemba) fashion line, Saimacuts Saloon and Sumi’s fashion boutique at Abryanz Style and Fashion Award on December 8th.

“We want to associate with a ceremony that represents affluence, high-end fashion and cutting-edge innovation. We are thus honoured to be part of the biggest fashion show on the continent,” said Jack Pemba.

Abryanz Style and Fashion Award eventually went down went down at the Kampala Serena Hotel on Friday December 8th and Jack Pemba feels Brian Ahumuza didn’t keep his end of the bargain.

The award gala which was headlined by South Africa’s duo Mafikizolo was attended by several fashion enthusiasts from across the continent.

Sheba Kasami Pemba’s fashion line and her other fashion businesses were showcased at the award gala but apparently Jack Pemba doesn’t feel he was mentioned enough unlike he thought he would have been.

Jack Pemba wanted to be at the center of Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards but interestingly Mafikizolo carried the day and this does not please the flamboyant tycoon.

Sources close to Abryanz’s organizers indicate that Pemba has since fallen out with Brian Ahumuza over ‘breach’ of contract.
