As the case has been at other schools, there were performances however much it seemed hard for these musicians to raise the mood of the students reaching an extent of calling Mun G off the stage that he was boring them. Swangz Avenue’s Vamposs who arrived half way the event proved too much on a hurry and forced his way onto the stage before it was his time by intimidating everybody back stage. “I will grab the mic and go on stage if you don’t announce me now”said Vamposs. Talha had no option but to consult his bosses to allow him perform. His applause could be equated with his surprise performance as he constantly forced students to dance to his tunes.

As the event summed up, popular Kampala comedian Afande Kelekele raised the mood of the event when he cracked his jokes from the point he came on stage till the end as students applauded him. This was during the time judges were tallying the results of the competition.
