On Saturday, fitness enthusiasts, exercise junkies and their families were hosted to the first ever Zumba Fest that was held at Kabira Country Club.

Zumba is an aerobic fitness program featuring movements inspired by various styles of Latin American dance and performed primarily to Latin American dance music. It usually has a trainer leading and motivating the class of participants to try out modern fitness styles and movements synchronized to the music.

Sponsored by Rwenzori Water, a product of the Coca-Cola Company, the 2018 Zumba Fest is the first edition of what will become an annual fitness family event aimed at promoting Zumba as a fitness alternative and creating a culture of working out in a less intense, fun and family-inclusive way.

The 2018 Zumba Fest featured six trained and certified Zumba instructors from Uganda with one guest instructor, famously known as Saidi, from Nairobi.

“As one of Uganda’s oldest symbols of hydration, we are proud to associate with Zumba Fest in this activity that brings Ugandans together for the purpose of encouraging them to take care of their health by teaching them alternative workout methods. We pledge to continue providing Ugandans with water that has hydrating and refreshing qualities required to maintain a healthy lifestyle.” Said Mrs. Margaret Kigozi, the Coca-Cola Uganda Marketing Manager.

At the Zumba Fest, participants were encouraged to join any of the three classes – beginner, intermediate and advanced – depending on their preferred fitness levels.

When musician Ykee Benda featured Jason Derulo on the World Cup song, “Colours”, word started going round that he would perform at the World Cup closing ceremony. However, as d-day drew closer, it certainly became apparent that he was not on the line up of performing artistes.

Although he watched the World Cup final live in Russia, he has not escaped criticism and mockery from a section of the public. He has now finally come out to clarify on what happened. “I did not perform at the World Cup closing ceremony because of contractual limitations. I was invited by Coca-Cola, but the World Cup is organised by FIFA who had their own plans.”

“But even when I did not perform at the finals, it was still a win for Uganda because I raised the Ugandan flag high. It was also a dream come true for me to watch the World Cup finals live because I am a big football fan.”

Musician Ykee Benda has set the bar high. This after he premiered a new video that he says cost in excess of Ugx 50 million.

Titled “Onabaayo”, the video was officially released at a premiere event held at Fame lounge on Friday afternoon. Speaking at the event, he revealed that the new video was shot in South Africa by Nigerian video director Sesan which cost him US$ 15,000(which is approximately Ugx 52 million).

“I am excited to be unveiling my new video,” he said. “I wanted to give my fans something different. And because most of the beautiful locations around town have all been used before, I decided to shoot my new video in South Africa.”

“I shot this video in Johannesburg and it cost me US$ 15,000. I believe it will give me a competitive edge over other top musicians on the continent.” He added.

“Onabaayo” is a dancehall song, and its off his debut album, “Kireka Boy”. The audio was produced by Nessim.
