With this very long list, the audience was killed with choice. All of the performers did their best, pulled different stunts to take the attention of the fans present. However, a few were able to outshine.
GNL Zamba, Mun G and Big Trill had the best performance. The Teeniez are in love with Baboon Forest Entertainment. When they stepped on stage, the fans went wild. Big Trill performed two new songs which the Teeniez seemed to enjoy. When Mun G did Ebintu, the Teeniez screamed. He then did his Speaking in Tongues that saw Lugogo Hockey ground get wild. I personally felt that this was the climax of the show. Unfortunately, I was very wrong. It was just starting. GNL Zamba stepped on stage with his Nyoo Nyoo song that kept the fans on their toes. He then went on to do Wuuba. At this time, Lugogo Hockey ground was on fire. The Teeniez did what GNL asked for. They waved all they had in the air. Some waved hand.., and head gears while others waved shirts, vests and jackets. Wuuba was simply unstoppable. Baboon Forest Entertainment concluded its performance with Sesetula collabo. This was mega as they made fans go roit!
“GNL Zamba is the undisputed King of Hip-Hip. Haters I am very sorry”, an over joyed Teen from Hana mixed school concluded.
At this point, the show was at its best though not over yet. Navio stepped on stage and did his thing. He sang three songs and also had a cool free style.
At about 6:30, Swangz Avenue’s Vampino stepped on stage. With a live band, Vampino was ready to rock. He first did Endongo which fans were not well-versed with. Endongo is one lyrically strong song but needs more publicity. This was followed by Kwekunyakunya original version. The young boys and girls at the show loved this song. He then called upon Keko and they did Kwekunyakunya remix. OoH yes, Kwekunyakunya remix is more popular than the original version if the massive response at this year’s Buzz Teeniez Awards is anything to base on. Seeing that he had captured the attention of the crowd, Vampino did Love to dance original version. He danced and the fans loved his dance. They also loved to dance and thus joined him. It was now time for Love to dance remix. Vampino called Benon on stage and the party resumed. Swangz Avenue group led by Benon and Vampino was so moving. They danced and everyone liked what they did. Their performance was so energetic and captivating. At this point, the Teeniez looked as if they had reached cloud nine. Love to dance remix was the last song of the night. MC Kats announced the end of show at a few minutes past seven.
