The festival which launched in 2015 immediately established its reputation as one of the best new music festivals worldwide.

Nyege Nyege once again brings attendees the best in influential and eclectic musical acts influenced by the continent.

Cameroonian superstar Reniss who has taken over the continent with her hit “La Sauce” will appear for the first time in East Africa alongside rapper Jovi. Ghanaian DJ/Producer Gafacci will also make his regional debut as Jowaa, representing the most cutting edge African electronic music.

This year’s festival will also be the East African premier for the Cruel Boyz, Gqom pioneers from Durban, South Africa. Lisbon’s Batida king Dj NK, Italian percussive performance artists Ninos Du Brasil, Germany’s Harmonious Thelonious, Ireland outernationalist Peter Power and dancefloor legend DJ Marcelle (NE) will all make their first appearances in Africa. Sisso Records will give Uganda its first taste of the 170bpm Singeli music driving Tanzania’s youth crazy.

With the generous support of the Arts Council (UK), NTS Radio, the internet’s most influential platform for new and old music, will curate a special stage on the festival’s first night with British DJs Moxie, A.G., Anu and Skinny Macho.

Representing locally the festival will see performances from Jinja’s own Maro, Mbale’s Byg Ben, Femme Electronic pioneer DJ Rachel, King of the dancefloor DJ Aludah, Talent Africa’s DJ Crisio and will feature a showcase from events platform A Ka Dope.

The 2017 edition places special emphasis on the rich diversity of Ugandan traditional music, with 13 different performance troupes from all corners of the country including the Domadana Kadodi Performers, Abonga the blind zither player from Gulu, and Ennanga Vision – the collaboration with Owiny Sigoma’s Jesse Hackett and Buganda Cultural Ensemble’s Albert Ssempeke.

Many of the international acts will be in Kampala for a month ahead of the festival to collaborate with Ugandan musicians and prepare performances at this year’s edition.

Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
