Controversies

#Thaddeus Saga

In 2011 there was distrust between Rabadaba and a member of the Good Lyfe Crew called Thaddeus. Thaddeus was a silent backup artiste or member of the Good Lyfe Crew. 

The mistrust resulted in a fight, however, in the due time; Rabadaba stabbed Thaddeus with a Benet in the stomach.

Due to this antagonistic action, Rabadaba was arrested and jailed the whole weekend. 

Though he was released on a police bond, the singer was supposed to appear at Makindye magistrate court on Monday morning to answer cases of attempted murder and aggravated assault and if found guilty, he was to spend not less than 10 years in prison.

Uganda police visited the scene of the crime at De Posh Bar in Kabalagala in search for exhibits though the pinned victim of Goodlyfe was admitted in theatre four times in a row in less than 24 hours unluckily he died.

#Rabadaba becomes a father

The Mukyamu singer would travel to the UK after the concert to see his only child.

Nonetheless, it’s alleged that even after his concert Rabadaba has not flown to the UK to see his child. The reason established was not lacked the money to pay the air ticket or failure to get a UK VISA or anything else but the former girlfriend didn’t want to see his man after they fell out over infidelity allegations. 

The mother to Sheila who also stays in the UK warned Rabadaba never to face her daughter.

That was the core reason why she dumped him the first time and even banned him from seeing their child when she relocated to the UK where she stays with her mother. 

The two, however, renewed their love story and painted Kampala city with idealistic moments.

Immediately Sheila boarded plain to the UK, her fiancé (Rabadaba) resumed from where he stopped with his cheating saga. Sheila Ferguson is now tired of his mean actions and so has thrown in the towel for good.

 It’s said that Sheila has severely excused Rabadaba to reform but instead he cheated more with various city babes.
