Christians of different denominations will come together to celebrate Hymn music on GoodFriday in a Christian event dubbed The Hymn Experience. The show that will beheld at Kampala Serena Hotel is organized by Masrob Events and the idea was championed by Hymn Singer Julian Nakato also known as Nakie Julian. Accordingto Nakie, gospel events have not seen success and have not been fully supported over the years. “I sat down in 2014 and thought of how to change the mindset of those who attend gospel concerts and thought about something fresh” Nakie says. She goes on to say that the Hymn Experience is an idea he got because Hymnsongs are forgotten but loved by many church goers. This year’s theme will be Bring Back The Choir and different choirs from different churches will come together to perform for the crowd at Kampala Serena Hotel. Among the notable performers who will be on stage alongside Nakie Julian will include calvary Cross Choir, Golden GateChoir, All Saints Choir, and Jehovah Shalom which is an Acapella outfit. Singer Levixone will also perform alongside Ezekiel and Esther, the youngsters who recently won the East Africa has got talent music competitions. The only difference is that these singers will not perform their songs but will perform together with church choirs and they will perform Hymns.

Musician Cindy Sanyu is set for a mega concert dubbed “Boom Party Concert” slated for this Saturday, March 7 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

The “Ayokyayokya” star will be hoping to make history as the first Ugandan female musician to take on the arduous venue, one that has predominantly been used by international artists and countable Ugandan male artists.

Although she admitted worrisomeness about the choice of venue, she insists it is for the greater good and hopes to inspire fellow female musicians with the daring move.

“As a female musician who has been in the industry for over a decade, I wanted to cement my legacy with something that has not be done before. This is why I ended up choosing to hold my concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval.” Cindy told media during a press briefing held at Bight of Benin restaurant on Monday.

“I also want to squash this notion that it is only international musicians that can fill up Lugogo as well as inspire fellow women that it can be done.” She added.

Meanwhile, Cindy has promised to give fans a memorable experience, revealing that she will be performing with twice the number of dancers and instrumentalists than she usually does.

The “Boom Party Concert” will feature other artists such as Kent & Flosso, Eddy Kenzo, Maro, Karole Kasita, Rabadaba, Silver X (from South Sudan), and Viper Ranking among others.

“I know I can’t do this on my own. I am calling on everyone to come and support me.  Join me and we make history together.” She concluded.

The concert is being organised by Nexus Events and sponsored by Tusker Malt. Tickets are on sale at Shs. 20,000 (ordinary), Shs. 50,000 (VIP) and Shs 1,000,000(table).
