and the KOMBAT"
of you who think you are dancers, want to be dancers, here is a
word or two from Michael Kasaija a former obsessions' dancer and
now the Managing Director of the new KOMBAT group which has
happened to hit the Kampala entertainment industry by storm.
Before I tell you more on the KOMBAT group, I will tell you a
little bit about Michael's past, present and future plans.
looks a very shy guy; it leaves many wondering how he does it so
gracefully on stage. When asked how all he could say was “that
is his moment, he knows he is in charge (sure) and basically it
is his territory which makes him King)
Michael had his education at Buganda Road Primary School ,
Busoga College Mwiri, and Caltec Academy and finished with
Makerere University . Michael started dancing in Primary School
but he was dancing traditional folk dances. Participating in the
Inter- School Competition was Michael's first time on stage.
While in Mwiri he started dancing to international music at
school shows, he continued doing all this through his life till
Makerere. At Makerere he participated and organized various
shows that took place like the famous Lumbox Show.
joined Obsessions is still the question, trust me it a long
story but I will cut it short. While hosting A Mitchlex show in
1999, he gave Obsessions a chance to show what they can offer
the called “Pearls and Jungles” (What a name, good the changed
it). Michael was quite impresses by their show. By this time, he
had no serious intentions to join the dance group. He was
invited to a party organized by the Obsessions by a close friend
“Pamela” who was a dancer at that time with the group. Ronnie,
who was the manager of the group, asked him to help them
choreograph a song, My Way – Usher. He continued helping them
out till he sat on a round table and was convinced to finally
join the group.
whether he spends time watching Usher, Michael Jackson and
Ginuwine videos and after produces the strokes. Well guys NO!!
He watches the videos, sometimes he does the same stroke and
flips it round to something completely different which explains
and shows that he can do better.
from becoming a father to a cute boy, Shawn mothered by one of
the sexiest women in Uganda , Natasha, Michael has formed his
own dance group KOMBAT.
