Despite the low turn up, revelers had a fun time as they danced away the  evening as different deejays took to the turntables. From Slick Stuart & Roger, to DJ Aludah, to DJ Nash, to DJ Brian, it was a rich line up that kept the crowd on their feet as they waited for the main man of the evening.

Selector Jay finally took over the turn tables minutes after midnight and was welcomed with wild screams and cheers from the already excited crowd. He kept up the tempo as he sampled several Ugandan hit songs during his set, much to the delight of the crowd who danced and mimed their favorite songs.

Jay was overwhelmed with the love shown by his fans and could not hide his gratitude as he continuously thanked the crowd for coming to celebrate with him this milestone.
