“Thanks for the countless people who came to the food festival this weekend and those who voted me. We are more than happy and proud to be named the crowd’s favorite 2016 among tough competition,” Bbaale said upon winning the award.
The Ugandan ambassador to the Nordics, Kibedi Zaake commended the works of Bbaale, saying that the embassy has always urged Ugandans to explore opportunities through creativity.
