NBS News Anchor and reporter Daniel Lutaaya has opened up on his past life revealing he was a hawker selling RXD earphones in the city.

Lutaaya revealed his past life hustles on Twitter in a Throwback Thursday moment.

” I used to hawk RXD earphones in Mutaasa and Majestic plaza. Gendayo obabuuze, nze nali mutembeeyi. Ne ku Kalungi plaza bammanyi. Mu kinamwandu nga tubaayo nnyo”

Lutaaya tweeted.

” Small boy from Kayunga got into Kampala and never left. Walked from Kamwanyi to Mutaasa Kafeero to hustle everyday. Ugandans really don’t believe that hard work exists, someone here called me a son of a big man. Mbu I am connected. Me, a villager, connected!”

He further said his mother used to sell charcoal in the Nsambya barracks.

” Maama wange yali atunda manda e Nsambya mu barracks. Go and ask my ghetto people in Kamwanyi.”

” All I had was good English, a good head and God. Some of you mutulaba mu masuuti nga tweyogeza oluzungu and you think you are more Ghetto than us.
Ninawo ku sente kati, but I wasn’t born like this. And I’m still hustling.” He continued.

Lutaaya is one of the most prominent journalists in Uganda today since making his big move to NBS when he was handpicked by the Next Media CEO Kin Kariisa.

He was born and raised in Kamwanyi village in Kayunga district.

Lutaaya attained education at Kisubi High School and St. Lawrence’s London College before pursuing a Bachelors in Law at Makerere University.

He started journalism at Joy FM before moving to Life TV, Galaxy FM and WBS TV were he garnered attention as a news anchor and a morning show host.

He was prompted to switch to sports when Kwese TV took over WBS TV.

Lutaaya has continuously been attacked by his Twitter followers for deleting provisional results of the 2021 presidential elections he had initially posted.
