It was a fun-filled day as holiday makers turned up in droves to do their thing at the Fly Fest which was held at Lugogo Hockey Grounds on Saturday.

From board games to yard games to dance competitions to music performances, the teens who started streaming as early as 10 am were kept well entertained throughout the day.

The music performances kicked off towards 3pm with Naava Grey as the day’s first act. This was followed by performances from other top artistes including Spice Diana, Lydia Jazmine, Geosteady, Toniks, Navio and Beenie Gunter among others, much to the delight of the crowd who cheered on every act that stepped on stage.

To keep the audience engaged, the artiste performances were interluded with dance showcases and deejay sets which saw deejays like Xzyl, Roja and Slick Stuart among others take over the turntables and had teens dancing away to their favorite songs.

Holiday makers turned up in big numbers for the Fly Fest.

Shortly after 5pm, the much-awaited Nigerian singer Korede Bello stepped on stage. Clad in a white ensemble, he was welcomed on stage with wild cheers and ululations from the exuberant crowd. With the Ghetto Kids as his back up dancers, he had the crowd dancing and singing along to some of his hit songs that included “Romantic”, “Butterfly” and “Godwin” among others in a powerful performance that lasted for close to an hour as the curtains finally came down on the day’s festivities.

The Fly Fest, which was being held for the first time, was organised by Fly Uganda. Fly Uganda is a movement that aims to empower teens by providing a platform through which they can freely express their passions and make positive choices while dissuading them from behaviors such as using tobacco that might ruin their life.

Chaka Demus & Pliers

By Our Reporter

Jamaican reggae duo, Chaka Demus & Pliers are not coming to Uganda, we can confirm. Popular for songs like “Tease Me” and “Murder She Wrote” among others, the Jamaican stars had been rumored to be the headliners for a Valentine’s Day show to be held at Kololo Independence Grounds. As it turns out, it is just that, a rumour.

Salavdo who is hosting the Africa Laughs show at the Kololo Independence Grounds on Valentine’s Day debunked the rumours while speaking to media on Tuesday.

“Chaka Demus & Pliers coming to my show were simply that — rumours,”  Salvado said. “This is why you have not see any artwork or official communication from us about them.”

Salvado, whose Africa Laughs show is returning for the 5th edition, further revealed that the show will instead feature Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize.

“Harmonize is going to bring the Valentines feeling to the show,” he noted.

The Africa Laughs show will also be graced by top comedians from across the continent like Nigeria’s Kenny Blaq, Kenya’s Eric Omondi, Congo’s Eddie Kadi and Zimbabwe’s Alfred Kainga. They will crack up comedy lovers alongside Uganda’s very own like Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko among others.

The show is slated for 14th February this year.
