Ugandan Princess - Cinderella

I didn't really know where to post this. I intially wanted to post it in the media thread but it was a BBC production and not really a Ugandan outlet so I just decided to post it here....

In the UK there was a programme over a year ago about royalty from all over the world, three princesses took part: one from Asia, one from Europe and one from Africa went undercover in the UK looking for their perfect "prince" charming lol

Towards the end of the programme they had to reveal to their date about their real identity, the African Princess that took part was from Uganda, her name was Cinderella

She was really funny, I don't know if any Ugandans have seen this show but I'll post a few clips for you to see

Sheila Nvanungi not a Buganda princess?


I am writing to set the record straight about the above programme which
was aired on Sunday 7th March 2010 on BBC Three [in Britain] at 9pm.

I am a true Princess from the Buganda Kingdom and my brother Kabaka (king) Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II is the present ruling King of Buganda.

The woman featured on the programme Sheila Nvanungi is not a Buganda princess or member of the Buganda royal family.

This woman started out using the name "Princess" Sheila Nvanungi as a stage
name but now to put in reality, it's shocking. She is well known in the Ugandan capital
Kampala as a singer and has appeared in a film but since 2004, she has hardly
brought out any songs and was rumoured to have many problems.


We are angry and shocked that BBC could make such a programme without verifying the authenticity of this person. I watched last years programme "The Undercover Princes" and enjoyed it but after seeing this one yesterday, it has made me question if these people are true Prince and Princess or has it all been staged by the BBC for the
sake of getting viewing ratings and good entertainment!

1. I hope the people who watched the programme on Sunday wondered why we never went inside any palace. The Buganda Kingdom has three palaces named Banda, Kireka and Bamunanika. None of the three was shown on the show let alone see this woman inside.

2. What this woman was wearing as our tradition attire is not what we wear. Our
attire is called a busuuti but this woman was dressed like a Zulu from South Africa.

3. This woman acted very primitive but members of the Buganda Royal Family are well educated who have attended schools, colleges and universities here in Britain and
America. Even at this moment, we have young members of our royal family at boarding school here. Yes, we do know what jacket potato, beef burger and coleslaw are but this woman did not have a clue.

It is shocking how primitive this woman came across in the programme. She has
ashamed, humiliated and embarrassed the Buganda Kingdom. I hope you will be able to print this for us in order to set the record straight.


this is from a Ugandan new paper.

oh dear now I feel terrible....well I'm sorry for posting a false representation of Uganda then

oh and btw I had noticed that she wasn't wearing a busuuti but because I thought she was a royal I thought they had another special outfit reserved for them...but that is a good point though.

I need to get this out of my system b4 it's too late......Sheila's hairstyles throughout the episiodes were a complete mess.com.....my fingers were literally itching to fix her hair.

I watched all the episiodes and Sheila was hialrious and entertaining. (i really don't care whether she was a fake princess). She was interesting to watch. The princess from Germany just didn'tlook like a princess IMO.......and her choice in men sucked. Sheila got a good taste in men and Lawrence was a fine specimen+ good personality (hard to find these kinds).

As for the Indian princess, I was like "chile please, keep it moving"....she was on the wrong show, she was very boring, and lacked personality. Having said that, the only princess IMO from that show was the Indian princess(however, i don't think she comes from a very popular Kingdom. Probably comes from one of those less significant kingdoms). The Indian princess too was crying and taking sticky notes on how to appraoch a man! ..wtf......Anyways, the German girl just didn't look like a princess and she needed to fix her teeth. I am sure she was a hired actress. As for my favorite, Sheila, girlfriend was the bomb.com

The producers definitely know what they were doing and hired actors and less significant descendants of a royal kindom (the Indian princess) to make a show.

But yeah, it was good to see three strangers from different continents interact with one another without succumbing to the prejudices and stereotypes on this world.

I never knew you guys could watch this programme in America

yeah I did know one Ugandan girl that was embarassed of Sheila but she was the most fascinating to watch and after reading that revealing letter from u.g boy she does actually reveal herself to be a bit....hmmmmmm....a bit of a fake I suppose. She acts like she's never been let out in the world before but she was the most interesting and entertaining "princess".

The German one looks like someone who is down to earth and really cool and fun to hang out with - I duobt she even knew about her royal connections...lol @ the Indian one, she's lived a sheltered life all her life - she didn't even know how to approach women all that so how was she supposed to know how approach men lol

I think the undercover princes were more enetertaining however....The Swazi King was such a typical African man ....damn he needed to excercise as well.

I loved what he told his date....she dared to disagree with him about the British vs Zulus etc and he said "lady, today we must agree with me tomorrow we will only agree with your points" ...just because she said she didn't want to be with him he blanked her for the rest of her stay in Swazi

The Indian Prince was into men

and there was another one - can't rememeber where he comes from and he was banished from his own Kingdom

but yeah Sheila was the best thing to happen in the women series - she should just have taken advatange of her exposure and short lived royalty status and gone and act in Nollywood ....that's where she belongs really

Nope gurl, it is not shown here but you did influence me in watching the entire episodes after you posted the preview for the series in this thread.....someone uploaded the whole episodes on YouTube.

Sheila had the nerve to call herself CINDERELLA.... Smh :

My funniest Sheila Moments:
  1. When she got scared of a dog from a passer-by
  2. Her sudden strange behaviour when she and her man were in Uganda.
  3. Calling a white man "too pink"
  4. Her first sip of British coffee
  5. Equating Essex/Britain to Paradise
  6. The scene where she meets her blinddate for the first time......No comment:

Apart from that, was the wierd voiceover from the background describing what Sheila was doing at various scenes
  1. The scene where the voicever described Sheila as talking to the trolley (at the supermarket) :
  2. When Sheila was standing at the balcony of the supermarket.


The Indian Princess ( forgot that girl's name)
  1. Her blindate date with that chef at the restaurant.....urg awkward!!!! :
  2. When that white boy dumped her on their date..lol......, girlfriend tried to unbruise her ego by forcing herself to go on another date thet very instant :...(we all know that the white guy dumped her)

Sheila is wrong on so many levels for doing this...the comedy starts from 8:08 - the end of the video... Smh


Please if you know where I can watch the episodes for the Prince, pls send me the links....I couldn't find the entire episodes on You Tube.

Oh Lord she called a guy "too pink" ....

I didn't even see that episode

lol @ calling essex a paradise ....yeah a paradise for horny men more like - that is known as the slutty side of London

I was laughing so hard when she forced her date from Tirnidad to pretend he was a prince from his country to impress her family

he couldn't even fake that...when they were asking him if he were a prince and how the royal structure is in Trinidad he was talking about presidents, election etc

And the first time he came out to Uganda she kept him waiting for so long and just showed up and was like feeling sorry for herself - lol that girl is a diva

sorry I don't know how to retrieve the whole episodes but the Prince version was hilarious...none of the girls in the UK were feeling the Swazi King - must have hurt his royal ego....I don't even think they knew what flirting was...he would just go to a group of girls with a pen and paper collecting numbers

the next day he tried calling them up to come over they were like no way lol
