When Bebe Cool announced his much-anticipated “Golden Heart” concert this year, he revealed that its proceeds would go towards facilitating children with complicated heart problems to receive treatment abroad.

With just days to the concert, the “Love You Everyday” hitmaker has now revealed the kids who will benefit from his charity concert. He announced 5 kids who included Mukyadondwa Anthony, Namuyomba Shirat, Ogwang Emmy, Bbosa Bashir, and Kicaarwot Sandra who will all be flying to India a few days after the concert to receive specialized treatment in top Indian hospitals.

He previously noted that the initiative to facilitate ailing children to India was inspired by an encounter with a mother and her sick child at his gate early this year.

“A few months ago, I met a woman with a child at my gate who was seeking my help to go receive treatment in India. She told me that she had some one ready to foot all her hospital bills in India but she did not have money for an air ticket. I was skeptical, but after I verified her story and it was true, I contacted some of my friends and raised money to send her kid to India where she underwent a successfully operation. This made realize how little can make a difference in another person’s life.” He explained.

He also promised to continue facilitating more children to India with his every other major concert after the “Golden Heart” concert. The “Golden Heart” concert is slated for this Friday, August 3 at Kololo Independence grounds.

Comedy duo, Madrat & Chiko gave fans a memorable evening at the second edition of the “Nseko Buseko” show that was held at Imperial Royale Hotel on Friday.

The evening opened with a performance from Janzi band who did renditions of popular songs from the past as well as the present as revelers settled in their seats. This was followed up by a dance showcase from Platinum dancers who would later welcome the much awaited stars onto the stage.

Madrat & Chiko stepped on stage at around 9.30 pm dressed in boxing garb, amid excitement from the crowd, as they went on to enact a boxing match. Played out in slow motion in a makeshift ring, it was punctuated with commentary from VJ Junior and comedian Tamale Mirundi who made fun of the ‘fighters’, to the amusement of the revelers. The boxing match was set to reflect Uganda’s political environment with Madrat (representing NRM) knocking out Chiko (representing opposition) even when he seemed to have the muscular disadvantage given his diminutive figure. The skit lasted about 30 minutes before they went back and changed into normal apparel.

In the succeeding session, the comedy duo cracked up the crowd which now filled up the Primrose hall with experiences about day-to-day life of the rich juxtaposed against those of the poor. They made fun of how the rich dress differently from the poor, and how they each conduct themselves at funeral rites among others. They also joked about current affairs like the recently introduced Social media tax and recent spate of murders. They did not even spare themselves as they shared their embarrassing first time trip to USA.

Their performance which went on till midnight attracted intermittent applause from the audience as they laughed out heartily. The show was interluded by a performance from comedian Alex Muhangi, who was the host of the evening.

Sponsored by Tusker Malt, Miranda and Galaxy FM among others, the show was graced by several high profile dignitaries including musicians, city businessmen and political figures most notably State Minister Hon. Ronald Kibuule.

Young stars, Abigail Joyce, 7, and Alvan Jeriel, 9, are set to hold a concert to raise awareness about cancer in children. Abigail is a singer while Alvan is a pianist.

Dubbed “Cancer Charity Concert”, it was officially announced on Thursday at a press briefing held at the Uganda Cancer Institute, Mulago hospital. Speaking to media, the young stars revealed that they composed a cancer song to commiserate with cancer patients after they visited them in hospital and saw their pain, and that is how the idea of a charity concert came about.

“We had a friend who was diagnosed with cancer and taken to India for treatment. She recovered fully, and when she returned we came with her to visit cancer patients at Mulago hospital. When we saw the other patients and what they were going through, we were very touched and decided to compose a song titled ‘Cancer’ that we hoped would offer them some comfort.” They explained.

They also revealed that all proceeds from the concert will go towards helping children with cancer at the Uganda Cancer Institute.

Dr Joyce Balagadde Kambugu, the head of Paediatric Oncology Services at Uganda Cancer Institute, appreciated the move, noting that one of the big barriers to fighting cancer in children is lack of awareness among the masses and that such an inititiative is one of the ways to tackle it.

“We are grateful to have these youngsters holding a concert to raise awareness about cancer in children because one of our challenges is late presentation of children with cancer,” she stated. “Our registry estimates that 7,000 children develop cancer every year. And every year UCI receives a rising number of children with cancer.”

“While cancer in children is not preventable, if detected early and well diagnosed it can be cured. 80% of children are expected to get well if diagnosed in time.” She added.

The “Cancer Charity Concert” is slated for September 2nd at the Kampala Serena hotel. Abigail and Alvan will be joined by other artistes including Levixone and Exodus among others.
