One aspect of the dancehall musician’s life that has always remained a mystery is her love life, which she has always kept private.
The beautiful dancehall musician opened up about her love life in an interview with Spark TV. She revealed that she is not yet legally married, but she is madly in love.
Although she has not revealed who the man in her life is, there have been speculations and rumors that Karole Kasita’s boyfriend is popular rapper Frank Mukiiza, aka Feffe Bussi.
The rumors gained traction after an audio recording of their phone call surfaced earlier this year. The two lovebirds, who had previously been private, were all romantic and lovey-dovey to each other in the conversation, calling each other “baby” and “love of my life.”
A few days after the phone call became public, Feffe Bussi confirmed that he was the one who spoke with Karole Kasita. He also revealed that the entire conversation was a publicity stunt to promote their upcoming song Ebyo Byoli, that he and Karole Kasita are not dating, and that Karole Kasita’s boyfriend’s identity remains unknown for the time being.
There was a rumor circulating a few years ago that Karole Kasita and Daddy Andre were romantically involved.
This rumour, like the one about Karole Kasita and Feffe Bussi, surfaced while Karole and Daddy Andre were working on their hit song Baby Papa and the two were seen hanging out more than expected.
Karole Kasita denied having a romantic relationship with Daddy Andre and stated that they were only working together.
Singer, Karole Kasita is currently heavy and expecting a child and word has it that the self-proclaimed rapper, Feffe Bussi, could be the prime suspect.
Karole Kasite had a zungu bae at first, but they split up. She has been free since then, and the ease with which she mixes with male artists makes it difficult to identify the suspected baby daddy.
Karole Kasita and her boyfriend trended for the wrong reasons in June 2020. Things got heated when Karole Kasita and her fans started hurling insults at each other during a live Instagram Q&A.
Her unidentified boyfriend allegedly accused her of disrespecting him and took her phone. Things quickly deteriorated as Karole Kasita retaliated, resulting in a verbal war.
Although the video did not portray Karole or her mysterious man favorably, her fans enjoyed the drama. It’s unclear whether the man in the fight with Karole Kasita is the same man who is her current boyfriend.
Karole Kasita, has addressed the concept of “cancel culture” among Ugandan artists in South Sudan, arguing that talent outweighs disagreements.
According to Karole Kasita, fans form strong bonds with artists when they connect with their music, and when they do something inflammatory, it feels personal. However much they try to cancel artists, they can’t stay away from the beauty of their music.
“We are good artists and I think talent speaks louder than anything else. You will get through if you have good music and are talented, because music comes from the heart and speaks to the heart.” She expressed herself.
Karole Kasita was one of the Ugandan artists who last performed in Juba. Despite having a large fan base for her show, she did not send a condolence message to South Sudan in the wake of the death of one of their top artists, Mantani.
Karole Kasita openly accepted responsibility and apologized on behalf of all Ugandan artists in an interview. She admitted that what they did was somewhat unfair, and they deeply regret it.
“It was entirely our fault. We made so many mistakes as Ugandan artists because we were so insensitive. To think that Mantani died and no one in our country even mentioned it. We sincerely apologize for this.” Karole stated.
Despite the criticism, the “Binyuma” singer has stated that she will not change her dress code. She claims she will keep it unless she leaves the music industry.
In an interview with local television on Monday evening, the ‘Balance’ singer stated that the only way to end the ongoing harassment is to deny fans access to artists during performances without changing the dress code.
“Changing my appearance will not prevent sexual harassment.” Event organizers must find a way to limit fans’ easy access to the performers. “During these performances, a gap should be created,” said Karole Kasita.
She also asked fans to exercise restraint before declaring that she would not stop dressing the way she wants.
Karole Kasita, the self-proclaimed “most booked pregnant artist” in the country, has not been immune to hungry predators, particularly during events.
A young-looking photographer stepped on stage with other revelers and made her uncomfortable while she was performing at a show.
Karole Kasita, who was heavily pregnant at the time, had to beg security to come onto the stage and save her from a photographer who was looking for dubs during her recent performance.
