Published

Fun was the theme and street food, the language of expression as Kampala welcomed its first ever street food carnival. Even if it was only its first edition, the KCCA Foodie Street Carnival will surely go down in history as one of the finest food festivals the city has witnessed.

Food lovers thronged Parliamentary Avenue early in anticipation of a good time, and they were not disappointed. The carnival which draws inspiration from cities such as Paris, Berlin, London, Manila and Brussels showcased many of the country’s popular street foods and local cuisines giving Kampala’s foodies a real treat.

The venue buzzed with life as many could barely hold back their delight with the many ready-to-eat food offerings that were available. There were different food stalls, trucks and booths armed with a delicious buffet of differently cooked meals served with a pairing of either Tusker Lite or Coca Cola that left many food lovers spoilt for choice.

The Kampala Foodie Street also featured the hugely popular Brookside yoghurt and sampling from Unilever’s Aromat brand, as well as discounted gas sales from Shell Gas.

The crowds were also left impressed with a dual performance by Happy Kyazze, the saxophonist, and Aloysious the Guitarist who serenaded the crowds with their soothing music as Allan Kanyike “Dynamite” added some light dance entertainment all afternoon, proving that he is indeed retired but not tired.

For those who did not make it, a year’s wait will have to suffice as organisers of the event, My Food Network, plan for its return next year with another unforgettable food extravaganza.

“Watching all these brands working together with the Kampala Capital City Authority, vendors and foodies was hugely satisfying and made for some sumptuous food pairings! The event converted the street into a celebration of food, music and a good time!” Dennis Asiimwe, Administrator – Operations and Event Manager, My Food Network said.

For the scores of revelers who flocked the shores of the Nile for the 5th edition of the annual Nyege Nyege festival, it was a long weekend of nonstop partying.

With five stages to choose from, the party lovers were spoilt for choice. It was no surprise that most could not settle at one stage for so long, and were always moving back and forth between the stages.

From traditional folk music, to pop music to electronic dance music, there was something for everyone.

Revelers who stopped by the Uganda Waragi stage were treated to a silent disco experience while the Bell Jamz stage offered them a chance to record a song in the makeshift recording studio. Lovers of live music performances enjoyed these at the main stage.

The festival which concluded on Sunday at Nile Discovery Beach in Jinja was indeed a colourful event spiced with lots of music, entertainment and fashionable people.

Here are some photos from the festival. (All photos by Bash Mutumba)

Queen Sheebah known for her usually electrifying performances over the weekend disappointed both her fans and those that do not so much love her. The singer who was anticipated to put up one of the best acts over the weekend ended up with one of if not the worst.

Sheebah first asked she performs with her CDs, something the organisers did not dispute. Even then Sheebah kept one dancing more than singing leaving her audience to do all the singing.

It was undebatedly an awful performance, the worst of the weekend in the entire Jinja.
