Another proof that love triumphs over everything. Ugandan comedian Godfrey Baguma alias “Ssebabi”, nicknamed “the ugliest man in the world”, has just married a third woman with great pomp. The two lovebirds look so happy in the photos, which have ignited social networks with comments, congratulations, but also irony.
Now 47-year-old Godfrey Baguma, who is said to suffer from a rare and unknown disease, and his second wife, Kate Namenda, 30, welcomed a baby girl a few years ago. Comedian Baguma won the less than favorable title in 2002 after competing to earn money for the family.
Before his marriage to Kate, Godfrey had two children with his first wife, but their marriage ended when he caught her cheating on him. “Ssebabi” is the father of seven children.
He earned his nickname “Ssebabi” after winning the Ugliest Man contest. He lives in Kyazanga, in the Lwengo district, and has just married his third wife.
About their love story, his second wife, now the first lady, Kate Namande, said, “Once you’ve found a man who’s right for you, don’t listen to what others say. Listen to your heart. Money and physical appearance should not be a problem”.
“I stayed with her for 4 years before her friends found out who I was. I didn’t want them to see me before we had a child because they would certainly have advised her to leave me… She left me when she was 6 months pregnant, but I think she accepted her fate because she came back two months later… I told her that I didn’t choose how I looked and if I was a burden to her, she was free to leave,” Godfrey said.
Former shoemaker, Godfrey Baguma alias “Ssebabi” now plays with his peculiar appearance to earn a living and gives concerts and humorous shows.
