Godfrey Baguma bears the nickname “Sebabi,” which literally means “ugliest of them all,” but this didn’t stop Uganda’s ugliest man from becoming a father again for the eighth time, this time with his second wife.

Baguma, 47, suffers from a rare medical condition, which gives him his unusual looks, but love is truly blind. He married his second wife, 30-year-old Kate Namanda in 2013 and she and Uganda’s ugliest man have six children.

According to the Mirror Online, Baguma’s other two children are from his first marriage, which broke up a few years ago after he caught his first wife cheating with another man. Baguma said she liked him for his money, but other people kept telling her that she could do better and she eventually ran off with another man.

Uganda’s ugliest man then met Namanda, 18 years old at the time, through his aunt and he hid away with her for four years, worried that people would tell his new love that she could do better.

“I stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me.”

“She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later.”

“I told her that I didn’t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to leave me.”

The couple finally got married in 2013 in his home town of Kyazanga in the Lwengo District of Uganda, stunning the residents there. Apparently wedding guests had to pay 4,000 Ugandan shillings (around $1.10) to attend the wedding reception and meet the woman that Uganda’s ugliest man had married.

Now the loving couple have their sixth child and the marriage appears to be working for them.

Baguma was previously a cobbler, but now makes a living from his unusual looks, appearing at various events as “Uganda’s Ugliest Man” just so people can see him.

However, according to Ghanaweb he doesn’t want to just go on a stage for people to stare, so Baguma has since launched a singing career with Amarula Family. Listen to Uganda’s ugliest man singing in the video below.
