Mugibson Mugisha Patrick aka Mugi is a freelance digital influencer/ marketer and blogger. He is currently pursuing a Bachelors in Marketing at Makerere University Business school.
Entertainment, arts and culture chose Mugibson at an early age, and his love for the industry bundled with his passion for writing and journalism birthed his desire to put out publications about entertainment and happenings in his home country Uganda, and selected international content for cross boarder readers.
Mugibson started his online writing by putting out his first blog in 2014, using Google’s ‘Blogger’ where he occasionally rolled out a few stories. He however gave it a break to focus on his studies, till early 2019 when he revived his blogging spirit and opened up a new blog; this time with Word Press (mugibson.wordpres.com).
Through his work, Mugibson has interacted with personalities including Lamu, A Pass, J-Wats, among others. He has also been interviewed by Crystal Newman on the RX Radio Podcast, and profiled by MTN Pulse.
He says social media has played a vital role in his work. Every time he publishes an article, he shares it on social media and this contributes to 40% on his blog traffic.
Mugi’s biggest challenge is procrastination. He also adds that “As a creative writer, you are your biggest critique so sometimes I feel I am too hard on myself and in turn work keeps piling up.”
He urges young writers to be passionate. “When you are passionate you are able to push yourself hard to put in the work in regards to research and producing quality content,” he added.
Besides blogging, Mugi enjoys traveling, listening to music and interacting with people.
