“Wow it was amazing! People loved it and their response was so positive, King Oyo, some MPs, UPDF, UCC guys were all there. It was the powerful premier expected, the cinema hall was too full, some people stood, others sat on the carpet,” said Simon Nyahahuma, one of the people who watched the movie.
“Very Inspiring. By God’s Grace I am buying another 10 tickets for people,” a one Joe Rwabose noted.
