Music is food for the soul, they say. While Geosteady has fed the souls with good music through out the year, on Friday evening he decided to also feed the bodies as well.
For the support they rendered him in 2018, Geosteady could not have found a better way to show gratitude to his fans than to dine with them. In what has now become a signature event to close the year, Geasteady offered his fans a rare opportunity to dine with him in a special event dubbed “Dine with Geosteady” that was held at Golf Course hotel.
The evening’s proceedings opened with a 3-course dinner, before Geosteady took over the stage a few minutes past 10pm to entertain guests who turned up in big numbers for the experience.
Alongside his band, Geosteady gave fans an acoustic experience in an interactive show that was punctuated with applause after every song. He performed several of his famous songs which included Nawuuma, African Baibe, Same way, Owooma, Ndiwamululu, Tokendeeza and Finally among others.
The show also featured brief performances from other artistes who included Fille, Wilson Bugembe, Levixone, Spice Diana and Nina Roz.
The show ended at a half past midnight.
Jim Nola MC ‘Raps Up’ 2018 in Dancehall Style
By Bash Mutumba
It is typical of members of the hip hop fraternity in Uganda to release songs at the year end, rapping about the most famous and infamous events of the year. In the songs intended to wrap up the year, rappers show off their lyrical prowess and catchy flow with the usual goal of edutainment. Jim Nola MC, who rose to fame after replying to Feffe Bussi’s “Who is who” diss track, has done his own — in a fashion hardcore hip hop fans(including himself) aren’t usually happy with.
It should be remembered that in his diss track titled “Hip Hop Saviour”, Jim aka Abedunego used the opportunity to not only poetically lash out at Feffe Bussi, the rap battle instigator, but also bash rapper Fik Fameica and Gravity Omutujju for leaning a lot towards dancehall in their hiphop songs. This earned him respect as a new rapper that had come to revive hiphop, and others even saw him as a reincarnation of GNL Zamba.
However in his Rap Up, The Son Of Najjuma leaned a lot towards the dancehall he dissed colleagues for, and even though his lyrical depth and flow is impressive like always, the unorthodox beats prove he has also been pulled towards the more commercial side.
Listen to the 2018 wrap up song below.
Magic Washington teams up with Sanga Moses to advocate for girl child education
When you educate a girl, you educate a nation, goes a popular saying. Therefore to ensure growth and development of a nation, it is vital that the girl child receives a good education. This is the message renowned Ugandan music producer Magic Washington is trying to communicate in his latest song.
Dubbed “Our Girls”, Washington teamed up with singer Sanga Moses to advocate for girl child education. The song does not only champion girl child education, but also calls for an end to child marriages.
For Sanga Moses, ending ending child marriage is a cause close to his heart having seen his three sisters forced into early marriage before they celebrated their sixteenth birthday. Since 2010, he has been focused on economically empowering underprivileged mothers by training them and helping them to launch clean energy micro-businesses in Uganda converting locally sourced waste into clean cooking fuel (briquettes) and more recently energy saving cookstoves so that they have the incomes to send their children particularly girls to school.
“Our Girls” was produced by Magic Washington at Master’s studio and Video directed by Ark Menz.
