In this second episode of his East Africa tours, Ikenna and What's Up Africa take a peek into the Ugandan professional football league. Ikenna catches up with Mujeeb Kasule, the Vice President of the Ugandan Football Association, and also Director of Proline FC, one of the most successful teams in the local professional league. Kasule explains his reasons for retiring early from playing professionally and dedicating his work to improve the operational structures and administration challenges faced by the UFA. He explains how his time spent in the United States as a college student has quipped him with that knowledge. As animated as Ikenna is, we know he would not end the episode without giving us  a taste of his skills on the pitch; and it can be admitted that he is a much better soccer player than he is a breakdancer! ... Even though he only manages to make Proline's under 15 squad!

At Elle, we wanted simply to show a young couple in love at the end of a very tough year, and Aweng and Lexy seemed like the most natural fit in the world."
