At the event graced by Minister Aidah Nantaba and UCC ED Godfrey Mutabazi and hosted by Flavia Tumusiime with Roger Mugisha, Kalema was awarded the accolade for Best Supporting Actor while Raymond won Best Actor 2018.
The entire crew of Fun Factory has since congratulated the two winners who they describe as ‘great talents’ upon their success.
Fun Factory has thanked Kalema and Raymond for their contribution to film in Uganda.
The comedy outfit resumes their weekly show on Thursday 6 December having taken a break to mourn the wife of one of their members Frobisher Lwanga.
The comedian’s wife, Sera Busingye, was one of the people that died last week on the tragic Lake Victoria boat cruise.
