All this skill set is undoubtedly the reason Bryan Morel makes an excellent fit for new business partners while maintaining old ones. 

It’s remarkable for anyone to reach the top of their field, but to step into an entirely different context and dominate, that’s respect with a capital “R.” 

On June 22nd 2019, a Twitter thread did almost as many rounds as model Naomi Campbell’s cellphone attack and TV star Kim Kardashian West’s career arc highlighting the absurd difficulty of working as a celebrity assistant. To Bryan Morel, this wouldn’t be his topic as he enjoys learning from the challenges met along. 

Early Life:

Bryan Morel was born on August 04, 1993 in Uganda, to Abel and Jovia Kyarimpa Muhumuza in a family of children that included one brother (Reagan Mugerwa) and three sisters: Ann Muhumuza, Olive Mugerwa, Doreen Arinda Muhumuza and Prim Ahumuza.

He was orphaned barely a year old when his father died in a grisly motor accident, on July 31, 1994. Bryan Morel would spend a chunk of his childhood in Lyantonde Uganda with an uncle, Yowath Mugizi Bishanga, a construction worker and essential worker. It was under Yowath that he started school at the tender age of 4, at Lyakisana Primary School, in Rakai District. 

There is one thing Bryan Morel boosts of. It is having overcome the infant illiteracy plague that bedeviled many young kids in his neighborhood. The family eventually moved to Muyenga Kampala, not too long after.

Education Background:

Bryan Morel’s education started at Lyakisana Primary School (1999-2006) before he enrolled at St. Gonzaga SS Kijjukizo in Lyantonde from 2007 to 2010. He then joined Sseke SS Masaka, completing his Advanced Level education in 2012. 

It was at Sseke SS that he built connections with pen pals (read students) from some of the country’s best secondary schools such as St Mary’s Kitende SS, Makerere College School, Kisubi High School, Ntare School, GEMS Cambridge International School, Green Hill Academy and Taibah International School.

In 2013, he enrolled at the prestigious Makerere University (MUK), Uganda’s top University for a bachelor’s degree in Project Planning and Management. This, he did while juggling class and work, a perfect imbalance that saw him not complete his course by the turn of 2015. 

While at University, Bryan Morel would also attend Mass Communications evening lectures whenever he wasn’t occupied. 

He learnt so much in communication as a sub-unit of Media and Public Relations. He ended up training and praticing that theory while coordinating press releases and social media campaigns for his later clients for example, entertainers Angella Katatumba, Judith Heard, Jackie Chandiru, Sheilah Gashumba and Desire Luzinda.

Career Beginnings:

Bryan Morel was an outcome of a penchant in a school chap who always had connections to the celebrity artistes and influencers. His direct links later landed him small-time gigs connecting him to schools in Zanzibar Tanzania, Nairobi Kenya, Kigali Rwanda, Masaka, Kampala and Jinja in Uganda, where he often remotely hired underground artistes to perform at the respective school parties.

After completing high school in 2012, Bryan Morel worked at the prestigious Diva Awards Afrika in Kampala as an executive. Diva Awards Afrika was a Rwanda-based franchise that celebrated African feminine minorities in music, acting, sports and general entertainment.

Bryan Morel provided comprehensive administrative and personal support to the Diva Awards Afrika founder Mr. Kaggwa Richard, with a scope of responsibility that included, correspondence, office management, nominee relations, scheduling, awards shipping, and event functions.

It was at school and regional events that he evolved into a more celebrated Arts Coordinator, getting himself visible and recognized in national press by Buzz Teeniez Magazine, City Beat Magazine, Kampala Sun, Daily Monitor, Red Pepper and relevant media.

All these contacts are an answer of how he grasped them, maintained and put them to the best use. Bryan Morel was known for being patient, resilient and accomodative. 

In 2015, Bryan Morel was contacted again by Diva Awards Afrika to head the organizing committee of the Awards Launch in Uganda. The ceremony was successfully launched on September 14, 2015 at Club Ambiance in Kampala. Bryan Morel and Diva Awards Afrika rewarded female celebrity artistes Juliana Kanyomozi, Halima Namakula, Roz Marie Atim, and Joanita Kawalya. The event was graced by other acts like songstress Naava Grey, Miss World Uganda CEO Brenda Nanyonjo and Phiona Bizzu (Miss Uganda 2012).

Professional Experience: 

From a young age, Bryan Morel’s sharp intuition and business sensibilities began attracting the attention of his social media friends and acquaintances.

He may have been young, but Bryan Morel had and still has vivid recollections of Iryn’s earliest LP releases such as;

Wait 2001(I-Jay featuring Juliana Kanyomozi & Daudi Kitasimbwa Dawoo), 

Ensi Nujeli 2004 featuring Romain Calibre (Cello), Nicolas Talbot (Double Bass), Julien Tekeyan (Drums and Percussion), Julien Groult (Keyboards and Programming) and Manoubia Kefi (Violin).

He became one of Iryn Namubiru’s young publicists, doing for her voluntary publicity (as a devoted fan) at school. 

Bryan Morel used to email music and Iryn’s artworks to his diaspora friends beyond the continent – Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Congo Kinshasa, Turkey, United Kingdom and Ghana as early as start of 2006 before the release of ‘Nkuweeki’ album by Iryn Namubiru, an essemble of songs like Sembera NdaabeJangu TwemenyeNetwenyenyaSimbalala (Ft. Junior Pliers and Bebe Cool), NkuweekiLwaki Onzanyirako (Ft. Bebe Cool), Zinsanze and Njakunoba.

Bryan was already a household name at his university college as he was handy in promoting ‘Y’onno’ LP an album released by Iryn in 2007.

From these collections, it was ‘Wait’ (R&B/Pop) and ‘Ensi’ (Electro/Folk) that fanned his adoration for a singer that he grew to later work in the same industry with.

He continued to galvanize Iryn Namubiru’s fanbase piggybacking on the clout of Iryn’s other loyal fans to attract a bigger following. 

At the peak of his involvement, Bryan Morel used to distribute Iryn Namubiru’s album copies in Malls, arcades and music centers in both upscale and downtown of Kampala and its surbubs. 

He had built the kind of similar fanbase that shared adulation for similar music luminaries such as Angèlique Kidjo (Benin), Juliana Kanyomozi (Uganda), PJ Powers (South Africa) and Lady Jay Dee (Tanzania) and Nathalie Makoma (D.R.C/Netherlands). 

Bryan had started getting analytical and involved with celebrities during his stint with Extra Level Entertainment C.E.O Thadeus Mubiru, then singer Iryn Namubiru’s manager in 2009 when Bryan Morel was still in secondary school.

It was at that time Iryn released another crooner album titled ‘Boona Obasinga’ in mid 2009. 

‘Boona Obasinga’ album had songs NinakupendaMuyaye (featuring Rachel K), Lwaki?BalibasekaOmukwano GwaffeOkuswala (featuring Lutamiles), Boona ObasingaDance Floor (featuring Ragga Dee), KingambeNina OmwanaBoona Obasinga Remake (Moz B), NsambuBwakiseera and Bandeke.

It was from attained promotion skills and job experience that he successfully applied himself to the rigors of the world’s competitive environment.

In the years that came after, Bryan Morel best known by his colleagues as a young music publicist continued to double down, building himself into Bryan Morel Publications – a titan unprecedented in the entertainment publicity business.

Bryan Morel had an unflagging belief which made an easy catalyst towards social progress, new friends and clients writ large, namely divas Jackie Chandiru, Judith Heard and Angella Katatumba. 

On their initial meeting in 2013 with Blu*3 artiste Jackie Chandiru, She mentioned that she had seen Bryan Morel ‘s earlier promotions with Iryn Namubiru, a fellow female artiste on social media. This eased the young age-induced trepidations he had on his mind back. All was set aside as the only questions posed to Bryan Morel were “Did you bring the contract?” and “Where are we celebrating?”

On 08 March 2014, Iryn Namubiru a renowned Ugandan vocalist, assigned Bryan Morel to represent her management at the Airtel Uganda Women’s Day concert featuring Nyanda Thorbourne of Brick N Lace at Garden City Roof Top Kampala. 

The event was organized by Talent Africa in collaboration with Reach A Hand Foundation. It was a thrilling time for Bryan Morel one of Iryn’s biggest fans and publicists.

This representation came at the time when the public demanded to see Iryn Namubiru on stage after a year of her constant personal travels around Europe, Asia and across Africa.

Bryan Morel organized (May 2014) Jackie Chandiru’s Wotuuse music video premiere at Club Ambiance in Bukesa Kampala in partnership with NBS and Tusker Lite. In attendance was Jackie’s family and Peter Naawe (wrote the song), Director 1488 (shot and directed the video) and revellers who happily danced to the live performance of her songs IkumaboIrringwaGold DiggerWotuuse and Omukwano.

A week later Jackie was booked by Radio Simba promoter Namubiru Christine through Bryan Morel to perform at Ekitudda Baba FM (in Jinja), an annual music rural festival that unites revellers in Eastern Uganda on July, 03rd 2014 at Bugembe Stadium in Jinja Town.

In 2015, Bryan Morel was officially appointed and announced Jackie Chandiru’s Personal Aide and Executive assistant.

Whilst serving Miss Jackie Chandiru (Post Blu*3 / Blu 3) as her Personal Assistant, this job required Bryan Morel to always distribute her music releases directly to music DJs, radio directors locally and internationally. He was also in charge of shortlisting, booking interviews and responding to media mails, organizing choreography rehearsals, hospital reviews, meetings, studio time, welfare, communication with top management and screening phone calls.

In 2015, Hellen Lukoma hired Bryan Morel for her second edition of Genesis Fashion Night held at Cayenne Restaurant and Lounge in Kampala Uganda. Bryan Morel became the Chief Guest Whip of the event – in charge of coordinating celebrity guests, journalists and designers Anitah Beryl, Thirty and K Rafael at this annual show well organized by House Of Lukoma.

Basing on the floor plan presented to Hellen by Bryan Morel, Hellen Lukoma recalled him in 2016 for a working partnership – same job. It was beyond a peak in the entertainment industry that Bryan Morel was among the brains that made Hellen Lukoma’s show a success hence the reunion. 

Hellen is now happily married with two babies. She is also a recording artiste based in Kampala Uganda.

In September, 2015 Angella Katatumba appointed Bryan Morel as her Personal Assistant and Promotions Manager for Angella Katatumba 

Bryan can not forget in 2016 with the beautiful Angella Katatumba, the office of the UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon emailed them inviting Angella to attend and perform at the first ever Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul Turkey. The updates of the summit were well covered in both local, regional and international media. This came after they had made a donation to Mulago National Referral Hospital months before the invitation. 

The donation was a phototherapy machine and syringe pump which up to now saves over 60 premature babies a week. 

The Phototherapy machine works by sending Ultraviolet (blue) light onto a special cottage where the babies are put to help heal the decolourized skin of babies. 

On 29th May 2016, Bryan couldn’t hide the good news when he emailed his press data base of CEO Global Awards nod as new developments for his client Angella Katatumba. 

Ms. Angela Bageine the CEO Global Brand Representative in the Great Lakes Region recognized only two talents Katatumba and Eddy Kenzo for their exceptional and meaningful contribution made in the creative industry.

Bryan Morel added that All finalists would be recognized with a mini symposium in Johannesburg South Africa in July 2016. This was followed by a road show where winners in countries Mauritius, Kenya, Uganda, Egypt, Ghana, Zambia and Namibia got announced.

We have seen a lot together and because of his hard work, He has now officially been promoted to my Operations Manager. So if you need me for anything, kindly contact my Manager Bryan Morel Muhumuza”

Bryan had worked with Angella for over a year and had been the one making calls to different media houses anytime Angella has or was involved in anything news worthy and it’s perhaps for this hard work and agility that the artiste decided to offer him a new role that he started on with immediate effect.

On 30th September 2016, Bryan Morel together with his hot-cake singer and philanthropist Angella Katatumba attended, shared their 2016 philanthropy PR success at the African Philanthropy Forum (APF) exclusive breakfast meeting at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel.

Personality, Character and Lifestyle:

Bryan Morel is naturally influential and possesses phenomenal intellect, heroic courage, perseverance and a decisive mood which makes his life story readers to think twice and renew their perspective towards life. He speaks English and other indeginous languages.

He of impressiveness, friendliness, and enthusiasm, Bryan lives a humble modest life. Over the Covid-19 lockdown times, he used to make local and exotic cocktails on his Instagram stories. Customer care is his forte. He would offer his family members his favorite mango juice. He also likes blending different fruit juice and milk shakes.

This aesthetics or Bryan’s life and career rotates around his humbleness. Growing up under a single mother, life taught him to thrive on hard-work and humility characters.

Outside of work, Bryan Morel enjoys doing community volunteer work, traveling with his family and friends. He finds peace at the beach, music and theatrical productions. His family serve dinner to the neighborhood every Thanksgiving as part of his self-philanthropy.

Bryan Morel’s lifestyle is enigma and evokes different moods. An analysis of career is represented by being steady, supportive, sincere, inclusive, loyal, patient, lively and social. He tends to be fast-paced and people-focused.

His strong musical ear and choice of talents (being the only sturdy thing) provided a beacon of hope as his family was shaken when he lost his father Abel Muhumuza to a road contingency back in 1995. He is proud that his childhood tales didn’t stop him as he has become a big pop star representatives in the Great Lakes community.

Bryan Morel’s character is rendered as much a spiritual force as entertaining — resilient with inventive, vigorous humour in his regal way. His character becomes lofty and aspirational but not entirely knowable. That approach is rare, and therefore infinitely interesting.

With a great writing in his hand, Bryan Morel is a literature maven. He likes imagining and noting down essays and song reviews that he edits in his own rhetoric, style and literature before pitching them to companies, during his PR researches and boardroom meetings. 

He is good writer and media savant who walks into a conference room requiring minutes, gets pen and notepad… magic ensues!

This literate side is the sole reason for choice of the word ‘PUBLICATIONS’ over other taglines. “I wanted Bryan Morel the name to be recurred to another generation and that gotta be in writen amph” he once elaborated.

The summation of Bryan Morel’s difficult times came in 2018 when Daily Monitor a Ugandan top newspaper blog reported how Bryan Morel had turned to vending second hand shoes; after scribes spotted him selling wholesale trade of sneakers that the youth of the time called Feet Bit shoes.

Bryan’s never retreats from negative situations, but only stays in them to make peace. 

Bryan’s career demonstrates the sheer inspiration (of all rare technics used on brand development and trendy approaches) to others who look up to Bryan Morel Publications, a label he launched recently. He also custodians’ top female clients for example Sheilah Gashumba, a conviction to lifestyle, class and controversies including in 2019 when Sheilah launched minimum wage campaign on Facebook amidst questions of unemployment and salary inequalities. The level of resiliency tackling this topic yielded fruits after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni twitted thanking Sheilah and team for taking interest in national matters. Sheilah also worked as a presenter at NTV Uganda, a Ugandan popular TV broadcasting channel. 

When Bryan began working regularly with Coca-cola Coke Studio Africa winner Jackie Chandiru as Personal Aide, he made edgy successful deals of his time while remaining a top A&R champion amidst harsh complaints from his family. Their worry was Bryan Morel to risk between school over his boss’ errands or vice versa. 

Bryan is the king of anything; it’s reinventing himself and many careers regardless of circumstances but opportunity. Bryan Morel has proven, time and time again, that even if he’s down, he’s never out. 

According to Everywiki.com, the rigor of any presentation about Bryan Morel’s journey and social status is the extension of many incidents and how he managed them through.

He has been maintaining a rigid poise in the face of horrific circumstances, which is an impressive fortitude.

He chooses to uphold the illusion of security and make decisions accordingly, OR chooses to be open to diving into the unknown and trusting that there’s nothing to fear in that. 

Being effective in difficult circumstances and setbacks is what enacts change and propels Bryan Morel forward.

TV and Hobbies:

Bryan likes watching E!, M-Net Africa, HD One on DSTV, BBC Focus On Africa and Father Hood. 

He practices meditation, travels and loves his family more than the world.

Usually Bryan takes mental breaks, makes a painting or listens to songs he likes.

When Bryan Morel can, he helps somebody out, it makes him feel better. He hangs out with animals, personal favourites being dogs, horses and foxes. Since he can’t have a fox at home, he watches Russian Fox whisperers on Youtube instead.

When Bryan Morel isn’t deep in spreadsheets, you might find him exploring nature. Yes!

Favourite Quote(s):

“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with. A professor may degrade you, but you will not feel degraded, a boss may crush you, but you will not be crushed, a corporate gladiator might vanquish you, but you will still triumph. How could any of them truly prevail in pulling you down? For you know that you are an object worthy of love. The rest is just packaging.”

This quote was taken from a speech Michael Jackson delivered at Oxford University in 2001. This speech was for the Heal The Kids initiative, a founded extension of his charity – the Heal The World Foundation.

Behind every sucess story there are hurdles and not-smooth path. It is alright. The focal point should always be on the prize. Anyone can win irrespective of their background, the type of job and current status. None of that detemines ones fate. Merit, effort and responsibility does! You can make it anywhere at any time. Don’t lose hope. Work hard and use every chance that comes your way, wisely. Forget the excitement that comes with the world.
