On behalf of the whole team, the now highly appraised filmmaker Humphrey Nabimanya gave a well laid out speech that showed his gratitude to the huge fanbase and partners that supported the making of the TV show that will soon be showing on NBS TV. “We’ve always used art to transmit SRHR information to young people, and we couldn’t have finished filming kyaddala season two without the help of our partners.”, Humphrey partly said.
