Sylvia Owori Leaving The NTV Style Project

By  | 

The famed designer is departing NTV’s fashion and style show after a two year stint as host.

Owori, who is credited with adding fashion to Fridays with the popular show where she and her stylish panel critique celebrities on their fashion and style choices, is reported to be quitting because of an internal disagreement with management over the future of the show.

“I and the executives at the station regrettably couldn’t concur with each other on what in my capacity (as a pivotal part of the show) thought was vital in making the show even better in the future, “ she said in a statement shared with us on Tuesday night.

“I have always believed in giving utmost effort to finding common ground or effective and pragmatic ways to move forward when parties disagree. That style has been instrumental in making the show successful but alas I found that atmosphere was suddenly unfortunately vanishing to my regret,” she added.

“I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to NTV Uganda for the opportunity, their courteous professional guidance and support they have given me over the past two years. I wish The Style Project great success in the future. I’m extremely proud and fortunate to have been a part of one of the highest rated shows in Uganda!”

During her time on the show, Owori has infused her sass which we only see in her clothes into the show, creating a huge buzz and earning enviable ratings.

The news comes at a time when the future of the show has been in question. NTV has not aired new episodes since last year, and fans have been wondering why.

Details of who will take over from her are still scanty.

With a heavy heart, I would like to announce to all my fans and well-wishers my resignation as the host of NTV Style project. This comes after a great deal of contemplation and consultation on what could be the best way forward for me and the show that I have grown to so much apprize.

This is chiefly because I and the executives at the station regrettably couldn’t concur with each other on what in my capacity (as a pivotal part of the show) thought was vital in making the show even better in the future.

I have always believed in giving utmost effort to finding common ground or effective and pragmatic ways to move forward when parties disagree. That style has been instrumental in making the show successful but alas I found that atmosphere was suddenly unfortunately vanishing to my regret.
Equally important is my long-term desire to concentrate on pushing for sustainable growth of other arms of fashion and all its related industries in Uganda.

I can’t stress enough just how immensely I will miss being able to regularly entertain and inform our ardent fans on key subjects of fashion and beauty. I will therefore take this time to continue to reflect in order to be able to comeback with an even more elaborate, widespread and ultimately greater show in the near future.

I would like to extent my utmost gratitude to NTV Uganda for the opportunity, their courteous professional guidance and support they have given me over the past two years.
I wish The Style Project great success in the future. I’m extremely proud and fortunate to have been a part of one of the highest rated shows in Uganda!

Thank you!
Love Sylvia Owori
