It was all pomp and glamour on Sunday at Lugogo Cricket Oval as the 19th edition of Blankets & Wine went underway. Above, the sun shone brightly, just a perfect weather for the picnic-styled musical event. Gates were flung open as early as 1pm and by 3pm, the expansive lawn at Lugogo Cricket Oval was teeming with hordes of Kampala party animals, draped in fashionable outfits; it felt like a fashion extravaganza.

The music blared as more revelers trickled in. Deedan Muyiira, who’s the resident emcee at Blankets & Wine, stepped on stage and, poof, the curtain was literally cut. Musical performances ensued thereafter; they ranged from Aka Dope Band (who are getting better by day), Izaya The Composer, Bero, Mwiza, Eli Nihloxica, the famed duo of Benon & Vamposs, and, of course, the headlining act, Sauti Sol. Revelers, especially women, hanged onto every song they pelted. From Sura Yako, Nerea, Unconditionally Bae to Melanin, Sauti Sol literally stole the show. On the decks were DJ Chapat and DJ Bank Robber who kept revelers on their feet.

Before darkness inked the sky, earlier on, corporate brands, as is always the norm, had showcased creativity in their hospitality tents. The Tusker Malt hospitality lounge left people ‘green’ with envy. They had a spacious sitting lounge with puffy green cushions that offered unmatched relaxation and tranquility. Guests in the Tusker Malt tent, which stood out beautifully, made merry with frosty drinks in hand. Still in the tents, the Uganda Waragi pop up beach was such a spectacle with white sand, umbrellas and, of course, cocktails.

Silk Events did a brisk job. There wasn’t any sound glitches as the event carried on. As it has been the norm, drinks were in plenty. Some folks opted to carry their favourite drinks that ranged from wines, whiskey and whatnot. Thereafter, instead of drinking and driving, Ubers were a call away.

Grace Namutebi, the brand manager Tusker Malt Lager, mentioned that their participation in Blankets and Wine brings them closer to their consumers. “Once in a while, we would like to interact, party with our customers and also give them a memorable experience hence the partnership with Blankets & Wine which gives us the opportunity to do this,” She said.

And as night fell in, with a cold breeze blowing through, revelers on their feet, dancing and drinking, it was evident that they had ended the year in style.

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.
