“Uganda’s Ugliest Man” Found His True Love… Truly, Beauty is Only Skin Deep!

He and the wife now has eight kids…and counting!

A A A

True love definitely conquers all and can touch anyone, even the man who was named Uganda’s Ugliest Man. Not only did Godfrey Baguma find his true love, he also sired six children with her. Beauty is definitely just skin deep if you take into account Godfrey’s heartwarming story.

Godfrey’s unusual appearance is caused by a rare and unknown medical condition. Now others would have been devastated by this situation, but Godfrey has proven time and time again that he’s a fighter in life.

This former cobbler even used his looks to win the title of Uganda’s Ugliest Man competition in 2002; he joined the contest because his family needed the money.

Since then, he used his appearance as his livelihood. He adopted the stage name Ssebabi and started singing and performing stand-up comedy. He didn’t want to go on stage just for people to stare at him. He even has a music video!

He got married to his first wife years ago and had two children with her. They broke up because he caught her cheating on him with another man. Godfrey narrated:

“She liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man.”

He met Kate Namanda in 2008. They stayed together for four years before getting married.

“I stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me. She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later. I told her that I didn’t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to leave me.”

He found his true love in his second wife, Kate.

Kate said:

“Once you find a man you think is right for you, do not listen to what other people say. Follow your heart. Money and physical appearance should not be an issue.”

Well said, Kate! Here’s to more children and more years in your life together.

The happy family!

From Rags to Riches: The Success Story of John Gokongwei

If his success story doesn’t inspire you, then nothing else will.

Meet one of Philippines’ top billionaires, John Gokongwei, a man who used to belong to the marginalized sector, his ultimate climb to the top has proven once again that nothing is impossible if you have dreams and determination.

I was born to a rich Chinese-Filipino family. I spent my childhood in Cebu where my father owned a chain of movie houses, including the first air-conditioned one outside Manila. I was the eldest of six children and lived in a big house in Cebu ‘s ForbesPark. A chauffeur drove me to school every day as I went to San Carlos University, then and still one of the country’s top schools. I topped my classes and had many friends. I would bring them to watch movies for free at my father’s movie houses.

When I was 13, my father died suddenly of complications due to typhoid. Everything I enjoyed vanished instantly. My father’s empire was built on credit. When he died, we lost everything - our big house, our cars, our business - to the banks. I felt angry at the world for taking away my father, and for taking away all that I enjoyed before. When the free movies disappeared, I also lost half my friends.

He Quit His Job At Wall Street To Open A Pizza Shop. A Customer Did This And Changed Everything!

The pizza shop that pays it forward has inspired many people to be kind and the homeless, to be fed.

The greatest impact of human kindness starts from doing little things. Neither is it about donating a huge amount of money to a charity nor is it rooted from inventing a breakthrough scientific device. It is about the small acts we do every day that matter.

Meet Mason Wartman. He used to work at Wall Street in New York but then he realized that  it was not what he wanted, and so he quit and tried his luck in business. He helped amp up a place in Philadelphia and started a pizza shop called Rosa's. Everything was ordinary, until one day, a customer came in and initiated a very kind act, which inspired Mason to start a whole new project in his pizza shop.

Watch here to find out what the project is all about:



We think it is so nice to make someone happy with a single slice of pizza. As Mason said, it is unbelievable to think that such a small gesture can be so powerful. With one of the first recipients of the Pay it Forward project able to save up a couple of bucks to get a hair cut, a suit and a job interview, the now 'working employee' is a testament that small acts of kindness can really go a long way!

The World’s Poorest President Is Also One of the Most Generous

Here’s a tribute for Jose Mujica who served as the President of Uruguay from 2010 to 2015.

Considered by many as the “World’s Poorest President,” Uruguay’s Jose Mujica is living quite a modest lifestyle. He has served as the country’s highest-ranking official from 2010 to 2015 and he has won the hearts of many. Besides, this is a man who consistently donated 90% of his $12,000 monthly income to charity. Thousands have been benefited and have expressed great appreciation for Mujica’s kindness.

Unlike most traditional politicians, the president has never found attraction in living a lavish lifestyle. Instead, he lives a simple life that clearly demonstrates that the things that matter most are never at the mercy of those that matter less.

Here he is attending a meeting in simple clothes and footwear.
