Godfrey Baguma, known as Sebabi, has sired a large family despite his distinctive appearance
A man crowned the ugliest man in Uganda has become a dad for the EIGHTH time.
Godfrey Baguma, known as Sebabi – which means ‘ugliest of them all’ – suffers from a rare medical condition giving him his distinctive looks.
The 47-year-old married his second wife Kate Namanda, 30, in 2013.
Since then the couple have had six kids – two of Sebabi’s nippers come from his first marriage which broke up some years ago.
Speaking to KFM, he said: . â€œI caught her cheating with another man and I assured her our relationship was over.
â€œShe liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man.â€
Sebabi then met Namanda, who was 18 at the time, through his aunt who played go between.
He said: â€œI stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didnâ€™t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me.
â€œShe left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later.
â€œI told her that I didnâ€™t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to live me.
But she chose to stay and in 2013 they held a wedding ceremony that put his hometown Kyazanga, in the Lwengo District of Uganda, at a standstill.
Guests at the wedding had to pay 4,000 Ugandan shillings (about 70p) to attend the reception and see the woman Sebabi married.
Sebabi is a former cobbler who now uses his unique features to earn a living.
He appears at events as Ugandaâ€™s Ugliest Man just for people to see him, but he took it a step further by launching a singing career.
He says he doesnâ€™t want to go on stage for people to just stare at him.
