It’s interesting to discover that some of our biggest celebrities’ children have followed in their parents’ footsteps and are making a name for themselves.
Gandalebs has identified some of these celeb children who have started to earn big from their talents. A few chose very different paths from their parents!
Alpha Thierry Ssali
Alpha is Bebe Cool’s second born and first son with Zuena. He was born in 2003 and named after former Arsenal FC’s legendary footballer- Thierry Henry.
Alpha Thierry has shown prowess in football starting from a young age. He started nurturing his football skills at Proline Soccer Academy as a junior before being promoted to the senior team.
In 2020, he was selected to represent Uganda in the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
This young star has a bright future in football, and he is living up to his father’s dream. We hope to see him flying the Ugandan flag high someday.
Abba Marcus Mayanja
Jose Chameleone’s eldest son tried his hand in music, but he was not well-received, so he moved to swimming, where he has made a big name for himself.
Abba Marcus Mayanja has several medals for his talent in swimming. Recently, he broke a 31-year old record in the USA, where he currently lives.
His father, Chameleone, could not contain his happiness. He shared the good news with his fans on Instagram with the caption:
“Congrats Abba Marcus Record breaker. This record was set 1989, 2020 you pulled it down!!! I am so proud of you and more is on the way with God.”
As Ugandans, we are also proud of this young man’s achievements.
Allan Hendrick Ssali
Allan Hendrick Ssali is Bebe Cool’s firstborn son from a past relationship, and he is the spitting image of his father.
Allan, who graduated with a software engineering degree, is also a musician in his own right and has produced tracks like Omukwano Gwo and Akagambo.
It’s only a matter of time before he takes over the music industry by storm.
Sheila Gashumba’s father is Frank Gashumba, one of the best political commentators in Uganda.
She has been a household name in Uganda’s entertainment industry for a long time now, having started her career at 12 and has grown to win big awards together with our hearts.
Currently, Sheila Gashumba hosts the NBS After5 show on NBS.
Bobi Wine and Barbie’s firstborn is growing up so fast; can you believe he is already 16 years old?
It appears that the young Kampala is following in his father’s footsteps. Along with his little sister- Shalom Namagembe, he starred in a film titled “By Ourselves” in 2017.
He is also a fashion icon and an influencer which saw him receive a Teenz Fashion Star Award at the Buzz Teenz Awards 2021. Kampala also announced that Kanye West had followed him on his Instagram in the same year.
His achievements aside, it appears that the young Kampala recently got himself suspended from school after he was allegedly found in possession of marijuana.
