MTN Uganda has today announced sponsorship of Jose Chameleon’s “Legends Saba Saba” concert slated for Friday, 7th December 2018 at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Chameleon, whose music recently crossed the 20-year mark, has been one of the long-term musicians that MTN Uganda has supported over the years.

According to Valery Okecho, the Manager Corporate Communications at MTN Uganda said that for the last twenty years, the telecom company has supported the music industry and continues to do so.
“MTN and Jose Chameleone have had a strong working relationship over the years; MTN has benefitted from having Uganda’s biggest star entertain MTN customers during MTN events while Jose Chameleone has earned severally from his performances or album launches sponsored by MTN,” Okecho says.

Chameleon often performs at several MTN sponsored events and is known for lighting up the crowds due to his high energy and electrifying performances.
On top sponsoring his concert, MTN Uganda also allows customers listen to high-quality music through its partnership with TIDAL. Musicians have the opportunity to earn from their music through TIDAL and with the future of listening to music being online, streaming services will be a source of income for artists.
“Jose Chameleon is one of those musicians one can find on TIDAL. It is possible to listen to his music even after the concert. There is also a catalogue of local musicians that customers can listen too. It is an opportunity to listen to their music and also allow them to earn some money, which in turn is an incentive to make more music,” Okecho adds.
MTN Uganda this year celebrated 20 years of connecting Uganda and it continues to do that through providing communications services and through events that bring Ugandans together like music concerts.
Tickets for the concert can be bought at MTN Service Centres at Shoprite Lugogo and Kampala Road.
Jose Chameleon comments:
“I would like to say that I was the first local artiste on an MTN Billboard and up to now, I am still a partner of MTN Uganda. I would like people to come and see for themselves. I want to show people that Uganda has musicians who are top notch.”
On why the name “Legend Saba Saba;” “I was born in 1979 and that was the time when the Tanzanians came to help oust Idi Amin. There was a big gun mounted at the time in Mutukula called the Saba Saba. It was a powerful gun and I would want to stand in the might of that gun.”
Balaam Barugahara comments:
“It is going to be a very different night of music. We have prepared for this concert and this time it is going to be a fully exclusive Jose Chameleon show. We shall not have not have the curtain raisers that have been within for previous concerts. This time it is going to be only Jose Chameleon performing from as early as 8:15 pm till late.”

The Koroga Festival, an annual event that has its roots in Kenya is one of the most sought after events in the country. The word “koroga” means “to mix” or “to stir” in the Swahili language, and is an apt representation of all that happened on a day centered around food and drink.

Having been successfully initiated onto the Ugandan scene this month with Tusker Lite onboard, the festival attracted large numbers of food enthusiasts and beer lovers for a Saturday afternoon chill.

“Koroga Festival is a fun event meant to unite Ugandans with fun approaches to enjoying the simplest things in life. The basic starter pack includes indulging in cooking and drinking the finest the world has to offer and what better timing than to incorporate the event into this festive merry season,” said My Food Network’s Mark Kaheru, the organisers of the festival.

The first-ever Koroga Festival in Uganda took place on Saturday at The Gardens, Najeera.

It was a delightful afternoon of munching on scrumptious snacks and enjoying mouthwatering meals cooked by some of the city’s best known foodies. The event featured selected groups who took part in the friendly cooking competitions, with participants provided the necessary elements and ingredients to whip up delicious meals and then being judged based on the tastiness, quickness and creativity that they had exhibited.

“Good food is best paired with Tusker Lite, which is why our brand has been involved in a stream of food-oriented festivals throughout the year within Kampala. The Koroga Festival is a great way to bring people together during this
festive season,” said Cathy Twesigye, Brand Manager, Premium Beers UBL.

The Koroga Festival diners were also treated to a full bar with table service and delicious ready-to-order starters to keep them busy as the cooking went on. Revelers later ended the day to the sounds of friendly amateur karaoke and laughter.
