Arguably Uganda’s funniest man, comedian Patrick “Salvado” Idringi is set for a rib-cracking show dubbed ‘Africa Laughs’ come February 14, 2020 at Kololo Airstrip.

The natural, blunt and hilarious “Man from Ombokolo” who draws his humour from events in society and his village Ombokolo celebrates 10 years since he traded his engineering career for stand-up comedy.

Addressing journalists at a press conference held at Speke Apartments to officially announce the show, the much sought-after comedian revealed that comedy has changed his life and helped him grow as a person.

“I want to thank God that 10 years later, after I decided to take this path, I am still here and going strong.” Salvado told media. “I must say it has not been an easy journey but I have loved every bit of it and very excited to be celebrating this milestone.”

First held in 2013, Africa Laughs in partnership with The Singleton will this year be running its fifth lap and to celebrate the milestone, Salvado will be joined by international comedy giants like Kenny Blaq, Eric Omondi, Eddie Kadi and Alfred Kaingo in addition to our own crème de la crème, such as Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko. Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize will also grace the event.

“Valentine’s Day also happens to be my birthday. Not only will I be celebrating 10 years in the industry, I will also be celebrating 35 years on this earth. It is going to a special show. ” He added.

Salvador’s blend of laugh-out-loud humour and attention to ridiculous details while narrating stories has earned him a widespread following across Africa and beyond, making the laugh fiesta the most-anticipated comedy show of the year.

The inaugural edition of the Miss Uganda – Canada beauty pageant has been launched.

Organised by BigSeal Foundation in partnership with the Miss Uganda Foundation and Uganda High Commission in Canada, the pageant is aimed at celebrating and empowering Ugandan women domiciled in Canada through appreciating their beauty and different talents.

“The Ugandan community in Canada has not been given due attention with other pageants like the Miss Uganda North America,” Kyobe Jack, a representative from the BigSeal Foundation explained. “We want to exhaust all the Ugandan communities and will  be traversing all the provinces in Canada.”

The beauty pageant auditions will take place in the four provinces of Canada, kicking off on 6th June in Ottawa, then 13th June in Toronto, 20th June in Vancouver and 27th June in Edmonton. They will culminate into a grand finale on 4th July in Toronto where the Miss Uganda – Canada beauty queen will be crowned.

While speaking to media on Wednesday, Brenda Nanyonjo, the CEO Miss Uganda Foundation revealed that their partnership with the BigSeal Foundation comes as part of their efforts to build relationships with other pageants in the diaspora.

“The Miss Uganda franchise under Kezi Entertainment is celebrating 10 years this year and this partnership is very timely as we are now trying to build relationships with the diaspora community,” said Brenda Nanyonjo, the CEO Miss Uganda Foundation . “Our role in the Miss Uganda-Canada pageant will be to mentor the beauty queens and readying them for the big stage.”

The top three finalists will go on to participate in the Miss Canada and Miss Uganda–North America pageants.

They will also be involved in different charity projects in Uganda through the “Beauty with a Purpose” initiative by Quin Abenakyo, a former Miss Uganda and Miss World Africa.

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).
