This is a critical process and highly impacts the project in its entirety,” Innocent Kawooya noted, adding;
“Just like last year, we are again running under the bigger Include EveryOne program. We believe that an economy that includes everyone benefits everyone. As such, this program sensitizes operators and service providers to bring financial services to the poor through the use of innovative business models, and mobile technology. We also believe that successful and impactful financial inclusion efforts must be well researched, modeled, positioned, promoted, marketed, distributed, and critiqued as well as celebrated and awarded where possible.”
This year’s Include EveryOne program will include a collection of interlinked financial inclusion outreach projects including hackathon, expo, summit, awards and research.

The highlighted projects will be managed in a synchronized way to obtain maximum benefits of ensuring impactful engagement of financial inclusion stakeholders to effectively promote approaches that will enable financial inclusion for everyone.

What is the quickest way to ruin a good mood? Bring an ex into the picture. That was a lesson singer Chris Evans had to learn the hard way after he was almost throw off the stage while performing at Rema’s concert on Friday evening at Hotel Africana.

Evans had been invited on stage by Rema to perform their collabo, “Linda”. He however went off script, and changed lyrics of the song mentioning Kenzo, something that did not sit well with the “Siri Muyembe” hitmaker.

Rema was clearly not pleased with Chris Evans’ actions, and what he thought would please the audience quickly backfired.

She halted the performance and almost slapped Evans as he dragged him all the way towards the stairs leading off stage. All the while the crowd watched on with bated breath as he tried to apologise.

Although she let him continue singing, the chemistry between the two singers was all lost after that. Attempts to try to perform together were met with hostility and Rema was visibly livid through out the performance of the song. In fact, Rema did not sing for the remaining part of the song. She let Evans carry on alone, and later exited the stage to take a breather and make a change in a wardrobe for the second part of her show.

Evans performed just one more song after the incident and left the stage with embarrassment written allover his face.

Uganda’s favourite comedian Patrick Idringi Salvado showed that the perfect Valentine’s Day gift might not be flowers after all, more like an endless supply of rib-cracking jokes.

The ‘Man from Ombokolo’ had plenty to celebrate as he marked a decade in the comedy industry, and there to celebrate with him at the Kololo Independence Grounds was a mammoth crowd who got every penny’s worth at the Africa Laughs show last night.

Digging into tales of family, marriage, politics and memorable social interactions, Salvado was in his finest element, reminding all that he is king when it comes to integrating socially-aware comedy into his act. He certainly lived up to the hype on a day that turned out to be a triple celebration; he marked a decade of comedy, his 35th birthday and the fifth edition of his Africa Laughs show.

On a cool Friday evening, the stage was perfectly set for The Singleton-sponsored event. Some of the biggest names on the continent—Kenny Blaq, Eric Omondi, Eddie Kadi, and Alfred Kaingo—were the icing on the cake as our own crème de la crème such as Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko took turns to send revellers literally rolling on the floor.

The highlight of the night was Salvado’s 45-minute show. The engineer-turned-comedian infused a sense of endearing jokes as he merged his visit to State House and meeting with the President into a rib-cracking buffet largely enjoyed by the fans despite their different shades of political opinion.

To add to the enchanting Valentine’s Day feel, Tanzania’s Konde boy Harmonize , Levixone , Eddy Kenzo and Bebe Cool entertained the revellers with love ballads that had everyone on their feet. This had been a triple-treat worth their time.

Here are some photos from the show.

The highlight of the night was when Rema was joined by her lover, Sebunya Hamza on stage while she performed her single, “Be With You”. The couple shared a romantic moment on stage, drawing thunderous applause from the audience.

“I was only seeing these things in movies, but now here I am experiencing them. Please let me enjoy every moment,” a smitten Rema told her adoring fans.

The show also featured brief appearances from other artists including Chris Evans, Ykee Benda and B2C with whom she has collaboration songs.
