West, the husband of Kim Kardashian, returned to the list after a four-year absence. Forbes estimated his pre-tax earnings at $150 million, driven mostly by his popular Yeezy sneaker line, putting him in third place. Kim Kardashian ranked No.26 on the list.

Swift, hot off her 2018 “Reputation” tour and album, earned an estimated $185 million to take the No. 1 spot.

The 29-year-old pop star also topped the list in 2016 after her best-selling “1989” tour and album.

Jenner, 21, the half-sister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, came in second place after bringing in an estimated $170 million thanks to her booming online lip kits and cosmetics company.

Earlier this year Forbes declared Jenner to be the world’s youngest billionaire.

Forbes compiled its 2019 list by estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2018-June 2019, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade publication Pollstar, movie database IMDB and interviews with industry experts and many of the celebrities themselves.

My wife left me at test centre on learning I’m HIV positive – musician

Published

on

A Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive musician, Moses Nsubuga, has narrated his experiences since he tested positive for the disease 25 years ago.

Nsubuga, a Ugandan singer known in showbiz as Supercharger, revealed that his wife of eight years quit the relationship at the testing centre when she heard his status.

The singer, who also doubles as a radio host, also revealed that his family dug his grave immediately the results came out in 1994.

Nsubuga is, however, not blaming his wife for leaving him, saying she warned him of his reckless behaviour but he didn’t take heed.

In 1994, they decided to take an HIV test together and while she tested negative, his result came back positive.

Soon after the test results were revealed, Nsubuga’s wife excused herself to visit the washrooms and never came back.

“The mother of my children left me at the test centre,” he previously told Ugandan Monitor.

Four years later, the musician became very ill after failing to adhere to the antiretroviral treatment prescription.

“I was not used to swallowing drugs every day and on top of that they were too expensive,” he told the World Health Organisation.

“I was about to die. My relatives gathered at my aunt’s home in Entebbe. They had laid me on the mat. They started planning. They wondered if I died, who had Ush1.5 million to take my body to Kitalaganya. The wise thing was to put me on the bus before I die.”

His constant vomiting ended their bus journey as other passengers were not comfortable and the help of a Good Samaritan eventually got them to commute to their home village in Kitalaganya, central Uganda.

On the drive home, his aunts briefly stopped the journey to purchase materials for his burial.

“They bought cement, one iron sheet and backcloth which they would use on my grave. We then continued. They monitored me every day but I didn’t die,” Nsubuga said.

Things have since turned around for the better for the singer who was rescued by a former parliamentarian and took him to Kampala for treatment after learning of his travails.
