Self-proclaimed Stage King, Big Eye Starboss is not a happy man. On Monday, he communicated that he had called off his Dubai shows noting that ‘this time is not safe for me to be in Dubai.’

This cancellation comes as a big loss for him and his Big Music camp.

First, he was going to be paid handsomely in Dubai. Now that the Dubai show that was slated for 8th October is off, he will not have that money paid. Actually, he has to refund the half payment (booking confirmation) that he had received from the Dubai show organizers.

Secondly, due to the fact that he was traveling to Dubai, his management had turned down most of the local bookings for the independence weekend as the artiste would be in Dubai and only expected back in Kampala at the earliest on the evening of 9th October. Most of the events’ organizers and promoters were equally and justifiably not comfortable with booking an artiste that was returning on Independence Day for performances that same night. What if he missed his flight from Dubai to Entebbe?  This obviously limited his bookings for Independence performances too.

It is clearly a double loss as he will not be in Dubai and will also have very few performances locally during the Independence weekend.

Nonetheless, preparations for his much anticipated Nkuziniremu Self Contained Concert are underway and in high gear. The main concert is slated for 3rd December 2016 at La Grande Hotel, Bwaise; Big Eye Starboss’ home division.
