Legendary Congolese musician Awilo Longomba is coming to Uganda, we have learnt. News coming in from Cents Events (famed for organizing the Uganda Entertainment Awards) has it that they are bringing the energetic dancer to Kampala soon.

When we called the C.E.O Vincent Nsubuga to confirm the rumor, he said that the company will indeed, be hosting the Congolese musical artiste.

“We want to give Ugandans a retro-fused-with-contemporary experience. Growing up, many of us danced to Awilo Longomba’s music. And it will be like reminiscing the memories. He however also has a number of new hit songs,” relayed Nsubuga.

The rumor started when Vincent Nsubuga was seen frequenting the booking offices at the Kampala Serena Hotel, presumably to seal a date in 2019. Asked the exact date when the event will take place, Vincent was hesitant on disclosing many details, citing that it wouldn’t be a good idea for sponsors and stake holders at the moment.

“I can’t say the exact date. But it will be in April 2019,” relayed Vincent.

Awilo Longomba is a Congolese musician who was a drummer in Viva la Musica, Stukas, Nouvelle Generation and Loketo. In 1995, he finally quit drumming for singing and released his first album Moto Pamba with help from Shimita, Ballou Canta, Dindo Yogo, Dally Kimoko, Sam Mangwana, Syran Mbenza and Rigo Star.
