A Ka Dope, a platform for emerging musicians to showcase their craft, has announced a partnership with Universal Music Group, a global record label, in a move aimed at further elevating Ugandan talent.

The partnership was announced on Tuesday during the launch of their new season dubbed “One Night Only”.

Launching the 2020 edition, Afsa Umutesi, the Team Lead at a Ka Dope revealed that they have given stage to over 200 different Ugandan artistes in the past three years, but are now looking to offer even bigger opportunities for Ugandan musicians.

“A Ka Dope was started to give platform to underground artistes whose music was not getting played on radio as well as talented musicians who could not hold big concerts because they could not attract corporate sponsors.” Afsa Umutesi explained.

“We have since grown and realized that the platform we are offering is limited. Our goal now is to give a bigger platform and greater opportunities for Ugandan talent.”  She added.

Sponsored by Uganda Waragi and Roke Telkom, the new season will feature seven different shows, each offering a unique and dynamic experience. It will open with Ykee Benda on April 17th.

Speaking during the launch, Uganda Waragi brand manager Agaba Tumusiime said, “At Uganda Waragi, we celebrate the vibrant Ugandan spirit and there is no better stage to express your vibrant Ugandan spirit than the A Ka Dope stage. I encourage all artistes to bring on their A-game and show the world how vibrant and amazing Ugandan talent is.”

The launch ceremony was capped with entertainment from the A Ka Dope band led by Essie, performing a mix of their original compositions and cover songs.

Musician Vinka has released a brand new video. Dubbed “Red Card”, it was premiered on Monday evening at Fame Lounge and is aimed at promoting responsible drinking.

While performing during the premiere event, Vinka told revelers it is okay to have fun and celebrate life by consuming alcohol as long as they make responsible drinking decisions.

“Don’t drink and drive. Live is very precious!” She cautioned.

Vinka is the ambassador for the Red Card campaign, an initiative by Uganda Breweries Limited aimed at reminding alcohol consumers and music lovers to shun drink driving, an irresponsible act that could cause harm to their lives.

Speaking during the premier, UBL Public Policy and Sustainability Manager David Onyango said Uganda Breweries decided to use music to amplify the responsible drinking message and reach consumers in their favorite hangout spots where the consumption happens.

“Enjoying alcohol is part of life in many societies around the world. It is a part of how people socialize and celebrate. However just like other products, when misused, alcohol can lead to individual and social harm. As a responsible company, UBL we would like to see consumers of our products make responsible drinking a valued and enjoyable part of life.” He said.

Uganda Breweries Limited has for the last 7 years been running the Red Card campaign to inform, sensitize and engage consumers about the dangers of alcohol misuse.
