Musician Cindy Sanyu is set for a mega concert dubbed “Boom Party Concert” slated for this Saturday, March 7 at Lugogo Cricket Oval.

The “Ayokyayokya” star will be hoping to make history as the first Ugandan female musician to take on the arduous venue, one that has predominantly been used by international artists and countable Ugandan male artists.

Although she admitted worrisomeness about the choice of venue, she insists it is for the greater good and hopes to inspire fellow female musicians with the daring move.

“As a female musician who has been in the industry for over a decade, I wanted to cement my legacy with something that has not be done before. This is why I ended up choosing to hold my concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval.” Cindy told media during a press briefing held at Bight of Benin restaurant on Monday.

“I also want to squash this notion that it is only international musicians that can fill up Lugogo as well as inspire fellow women that it can be done.” She added.

Meanwhile, Cindy has promised to give fans a memorable experience, revealing that she will be performing with twice the number of dancers and instrumentalists than she usually does.

The “Boom Party Concert” will feature other artists such as Kent & Flosso, Eddy Kenzo, Maro, Karole Kasita, Rabadaba, Silver X (from South Sudan), and Viper Ranking among others.

“I know I can’t do this on my own. I am calling on everyone to come and support me.  Join me and we make history together.” She concluded.

The concert is being organised by Nexus Events and sponsored by Tusker Malt. Tickets are on sale at Shs. 20,000 (ordinary), Shs. 50,000 (VIP) and Shs 1,000,000(table).

Like the prodigal son, Raymond Mujuni has been welcomed back to NTV Uganda.

The investigative journalist who had left the Serena-based station in late 2017 to join the investigations desk for rival Kamwokya-based station, NBS TV confirmed his return to NTV on Tuesday.

“Glad to rejoin the Nation Media Group,” Mujuni confirmed on a social media. “I look forward to engaging, improving and growing the content on its platforms to reflect the needs of our audiences.”

According to word on the grapevine, Mujuni resigned from NBS TV over salary-related issues. Sources also revealed that the station failed to deliver on their promise for more resources to support his investigative work.

During his two years at NBS, Mujuni was directly involved in 11 investigative reports.

He returns to NTV Uganda in an editorial role.

What is the quickest way to ruin a good mood? Bring an ex into the picture. That was a lesson singer Chris Evans had to learn the hard way after he was almost throw off the stage while performing at Rema’s concert on Friday evening at Hotel Africana.

Evans had been invited on stage by Rema to perform their collabo, “Linda”. He however went off script, and changed lyrics of the song mentioning Kenzo, something that did not sit well with the “Siri Muyembe” hitmaker.

Rema was clearly not pleased with Chris Evans’ actions, and what he thought would please the audience quickly backfired.

She halted the performance and almost slapped Evans as he dragged him all the way towards the stairs leading off stage. All the while the crowd watched on with bated breath as he tried to apologise.

Although she let him continue singing, the chemistry between the two singers was all lost after that. Attempts to try to perform together were met with hostility and Rema was visibly livid through out the performance of the song. In fact, Rema did not sing for the remaining part of the song. She let Evans carry on alone, and later exited the stage to take a breather and make a change in a wardrobe for the second part of her show.

Evans performed just one more song after the incident and left the stage with embarrassment written allover his face.

Salvado marks 10 years of comedy in style. [Photos]

Uganda’s favourite comedian Patrick Idringi Salvado showed that the perfect Valentine’s Day gift might not be flowers after all, more like an endless supply of rib-cracking jokes.

The ‘Man from Ombokolo’ had plenty to celebrate as he marked a decade in the comedy industry, and there to celebrate with him at the Kololo Independence Grounds was a mammoth crowd who got every penny’s worth at the Africa Laughs show last night.

Digging into tales of family, marriage, politics and memorable social interactions, Salvado was in his finest element, reminding all that he is king when it comes to integrating socially-aware comedy into his act. He certainly lived up to the hype on a day that turned out to be a triple celebration; he marked a decade of comedy, his 35th birthday and the fifth edition of his Africa Laughs show.

On a cool Friday evening, the stage was perfectly set for The Singleton-sponsored event. Some of the biggest names on the continent—Kenny Blaq, Eric Omondi, Eddie Kadi, and Alfred Kaingo—were the icing on the cake as our own crème de la crème such as Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko took turns to send revellers literally rolling on the floor.

The highlight of the night was Salvado’s 45-minute show. The engineer-turned-comedian infused a sense of endearing jokes as he merged his visit to State House and meeting with the President into a rib-cracking buffet largely enjoyed by the fans despite their different shades of political opinion.

To add to the enchanting Valentine’s Day feel, Tanzania’s Konde boy Harmonize , Levixone , Eddy Kenzo and Bebe Cool entertained the revellers with love ballads that had everyone on their feet. This had been a triple-treat worth their time.

Here are some photos from the show.
