Roast and Rhyme is returning for the third edition.

Dubbed ‘Reggae Nyam nyam’, the third edition is aimed at bringing together all the reggae music fanatics as they roast their favorite bites, we have exclusively learnt.

Roast and Rhyme, an event organized by Swangz Avenue, has over the past editions cemented a legacy of bringing together the most classy audience, entertained by purely Ugandan artists.

We have however not established the crooners and divas likely to headline this edition as we expect most of the performers to be reggae stars.

The quarterly out-door event is slated for Sunday, 26th February at their usual home, Jahazi Pier Munyonyo.
