Photos: What you missed at the Nkozi Hill party

Published

By Our Reporter

Party animals who turned up for the Nkozi Hill party on Saturday must have exited the hilly venue with aching muscles from all the nonstop dancing and all-night partying in what was indeed a lit party.

Revelers lost themselves in the music while excitedly dancing to the myriad of DJ mixes that kept on playing, a perfect cocktail of fun and good times.

Despite being dubbed the camping edition, party animals ended up trading the camping experience for the party vibes as many preferred to blast the night away.

The event was crowned with Voltage Music duo, Kent and Flosso delivering a showstopping performance of their hit songs like ‘Byaafayo’ ‘Pull up’ and the crowd’s favourite, ‘Squeeze’ that left the crowd feeling completely alive for the most part of the night.

Revellers were also treated to an outdoor 3D Cinema experience as well as a gaming station that had the much more reserved crew catered for with many getting so involved on their own island of fun.

Sponsored by Tusker Lite, the ‘go out of town’ party lived up to its billing as many students and party lovers turned up for the massive Nkozi Hill party experience.

Here are some photos from the event.

The fiesta is borrowed from a popular pork market in Bushenyi.

Dishes were prepared and served in a traditional setting with an attractive look and tasty bites. Foods on display ranged from bitter, tangy to sweet delicacies while non- pork eaters had an option of roasted and grilled chicken to satisfy their taste buds.

Kampala revellers indeed had a taste of the famous Kabaragame and many were seen enjoying till late.

The family event was sponsored by Tusker Lite. Brian Seruyiggo on behalf of the brand pledged continuous support of the event and cautioned people to drink responsibly.
