The 27 year old DJ was playing at Kyambogo university when the fracas started. This was at the Smirnoff A fresh bite on life party.

Apparently, the DJ was supposed to perform for a limited time only and leave the stage for artistes to perform.

However, when it was Gravity Omutujju’s time to perform, the DJ was just getting started scratching his disks and getting partiers dancing.

This did not go down well with rapper Gravity who threw a bottle at him before a fight ensued.

DJ Cizza who released a tune called Bad Energy with Cosign last year rushed to twitter to express his utter disgust with the rapper.

He said; “Aye! @GravityOmutujju threw a bottle at me a few hrs ago – had to get escorts & shit for fear of his kadeyideyis – Wow! I love UG 🇺🇬 music but not at that expense – F*ck Off !! We can move without that. Playing at KYU University again ?! Was so very excited but wah – Never again!”

Although he attracted sympathy from fans, some were hostile to him for refusing to get off stage when his time was done.

One of the partiers at the party told us that as soon as he got on stage some of his bayayes started pick pocketing from the unsuspecting crowd.

This is not the first time Gravity was involved in such a brawl. At one time, the rapper who got shot at recently, was beaten up by security at Uganda Broadcasting Corporation for similar behaviour.

Gravity will be in Gulu today to entertain his fans.

We are yet to hear from Gravity. We will keep you posted.

The opening day also saw the screening of different short films and documentaries, before later concluding with a drive-in cinema where feature films, “Veronica’s Wish” and “Five Fingers for Marseillies” were screened.

According to Polly Kamukama, the festival curator, this year’s selection features 19 Ugandan titles out of the total 35 films that will be screened during this year’s festival.
