Uganda’s Jazz and saxophone maestro Isaiah Katumwa could not have celebrated his 20 years in the music industry any better.  He put up an electric performance that left revelers yearning for more at his Jazz Concert.

The concert kicked off with a brief performance from Talanta group, mentored by the man of the evening Isaiah Katumwa, to warm up the audience that was still settling in at the Serena Victoria hall and also welcome Katumwa onto the stage.

When Isaiah stepped on stage, the audience went wild with cheers. Clad in a yellow shirt and black pants with a saxophone anchored in his hands, he proceeded to serenade the audience with his music.

Mid his performance, he invited his 12-year-old son Mitchel Katumwa onto the stage that wowed the revelers with his mastery of the piano, receiving a well-deserved applause from the audience after his act.

Hugh Masekela joined Isaiah Katumwa as he performed “Maama Africa”, and the two went on to thrill the audience. Masekela is not just good with his trumpet but a very good performer too. He effortlessly got the crowd onto their feet and dancing to his tunes. His African-flavoured songs like “She Got”, “Khawuleza”, “Mandela” and “Coal Train” had everyone revved up.

When Isaiah finally stepped off stage, the crowd that was visibly still having a great time could not believe the show had finally come to an end as portrayed in their reluctance to leave their seats.

The concert that ended at 11:00pm, sponsored by Airtel, Pepsi, and others, was crowned with a cake cutting.

Here are some photos from the concert:

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to recover from, and it takes time to finally come to grips with such brutal reality.

Weasel has moved on regardless, recording music as one man band and doing some collabos with fellow artists like King Saha, though he still has not been completely the same person since his music partner and ‘brother’ passed.

He recently intimated to Adelle on Kiss fm Kenya that it was really hard losing Radio. He stopped hanging out in clubs for a while because he could not bare listening to the music they had made together since it brought back very many memories that hurt him.

He also regrets ignoring some of his fallen friend’s phone calls, and leaving him without communicating his whereabouts which has taught him to treasure friendship even more. Weasel also says that Radio’s death helped unite artists in Uganda.

Weasel who is currently in Kenya recording a new season of Coke studio plans to do a special tribute to Radio on the show.

Weasel added that Radio’s death unified Ugandan artistes who had been beefing.

“When Radio was alive, artistes were fighting each other. But when he died, they all tried to come together and they no longer fight because most of them realised the importance of being united. That was a positive thing that happened,” he said.

One highlight that puts a smile on his face when he remembers Radio is when they received their first payment of USh1 million after their first hit song, ‘Nakudata’.

Weasel also revealed that he will pay a tribute to Radio with other singers on Coke Studio 2019.

“It is my second time to be on Coke Studio. This time teaming up with other artistes and paying tribute to the fallen soldiers like Radio and other stars,” he said.

He is also working on a new album that has 15 songs, as well as Radio’s album, which he left unfinished.
