The 6th Prestigious HiPipo Music Awards with the theme “Music Hall of Fame” will be held on Saturday 27/Jan/2018 at Serena Hotel Kampala. Book Now. #HiPipoMusicAwards
The latest edition of the Blankets and Wines was held yesterday. Unlike the past editions that have been hosted at Uganda Museum grounds, this time, the venue was Lugogo Cricket Oval.
With a great organisation and the fact that the lead artiste was Mafikizolo from South Africa, it was clear that this was to be a great evening.
However, between 3 and 6PM, heavy rains poured around Kampala. Many on Social Media feared for the event organizers as these rains threatened the overall turn up. Secondly, by 3PM, Mafikizolo had just landed at Enttebbe airport and on their way to Kampala. We learnt that their late arrival was due to another performance they had on Saturday night. As such, there was no pre concert media hype and interviews featuring Mafikizolo and then the heavy rains looked to add an insult to an injury.
But all this came to pass as the 15th edition of Blankets and Wines went down yesterday evening up to 11PM. The audience was big and lively. Mafikizolo gave the audience a cool and worthwhile performance. Other performers included Giovani Kiyingi, Levixone, Saint Evo, Qwela and Lillian Mbabazi.
Here are some of the photos from this event.
