At the event, Lt. Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba represented by Maj. Gen. Leopold Kyanda pledged 40 million towards the Janzi. The Janzi will be displayed in the Ugandan museum as a true testament of the rich Ugandan culture.

Ssewa Ssewa took out time to thank his mother and lovely wife. It was such a sweet moment when mother and son shared a dance on the stage.

The historical launch of the Janzi instrument was sponsored by Tusker Malt Lager aka TML. TML has pledged to continue keeping it real while supporting real Ugandan music.
