Charles James Ssenkubuge – I Am The Ugandan William Shakespeare

Theatre actor and playwright Charles James Ssenkubuge has come out to dub himself the Ugandan Shakespeare due to the works he’s done for the film and theater industry in the country.

William Shakespeare was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s greatest dramatist.

Shakespeare is often called England’s national poet and has been a measurement for other dramatists that have followed after him globally.

Charles James Ssenkubuge has also been a great pillar in Uganda’s cinematic universe.

He’s written and stared in a number of movies, dramas and plays and therefore claims he deserves his place at the top in Uganda’s film industry.

Apparently, he feels that he’s earned his right to be compared and dubbed the Ugandan Shakespeare.

“I have Managed to write 50 complete plays and by now people should be calling me ” Ugandan Shakespeare,” Ssenkubuge said.

Ssenkubuge made these comments while appearing on the NBS TV show Late Nite Talks with JKazoora.

Ssenkubuge also talked about why many actors in Uganda have failed to achieve success and are still struggling.

He said most of these join the industry with no passion and instead want to get rich and famous.

The former Kampala lord mayor aspirant said that for his case, he joined acting to pass exams.

He also said that the reason Uganda’s film industry has lagged behind is due to lack of competition.

“Competition drives everything to the greatest and when competition dies in everything , things become dormant.” He added.

He was joined in studio by one of the best actors Uganda has ever seen, Philip Luswata.

Mr Luswata who’s shared a number of films was asked why he is not on social media yet his fans would have liked to mingle with him.

He humorously replied that he was born in the “BBC”  era meaning “Born Before Computer”.
