Uganda’s leading media proprietor: Flavia Tumusiime

15 Nov


One of Uganda’s powerful media proprietors is my dear friend and sister, Flavia Tumusiime. She was one of the first Ugandan media personalities to be verified on her social media accounts. For those of you who do not know who Mzzz Fav is, here you go.

Flavia Tumusiime is a Ugandan actress, radio and television host, voice-over artist, emcee and author of 30 Days of Flavia.

30 Days of Flavia is a book with a series of thirty stories from the life and career of the protagonist and author, Flavia Tumusiime. The stories were published on Flavia’s Facebook page and later on her main website with the #30daysofflavia.

30 Days of Flavia started in August 2015. It started with how Flavia Tumusiime got a job at 91.3 Capital FM. The stories profile Flavia’s private and career life in a random order. She tells of how she got different media jobs what has kept her at most of her jobs. She advises her fans on how to deal with social, private and career problems. The stories were published daily on her Facebook page for 30 days. Every episode or chapter started with a title and would end with a piece of advice for the readers. Her last chapter titled “The Journey” was published just moments before appearing on NTV Uganda in an interview to officially close the stories of her life.

The purpose of the stories according to Flavia was to help the young people that were going through tough times and thought they were alone. 30 Days of Flavia tells of Flavia’s personal life which has mistakes, burdens and hard times, a life most of her fans never knew about.
