Carolina finally unveiled.

0

After all had been said and somuch promised, yesterday was the real day for H.E Bobi Wine’s Carolina
Namusanga Ndeeba album launch. As people entered the Africana Gates the main
question that was in their minds was who was the real Carolina and by the time
the show was summed up, at least many had the answers they wanted.

By 7:00 when our crew arrived at
hotel Africana, masses and masses of people had already captured their places
in the people’s space. In just one more hour, the entire hotel Africana
people’s space was full to capacity, and the only question that stayed in our
minds was whether Ugandans are broke as they usually say  because this was a V.I.P show which costed 20,000
to semi VIPs and a wholly sum 50,000 to the real VIPs. The show that was
organized by Kibo Uganda limited was kicked off at 7; 30pm with the likes of
gentle king, Sarah shortie, super charger and Rachael k.

The real fire started blazing by
9:00 with the likes of Kabaya, Thunder man, Tutuman, Killer, Banjoman, Mickie
wine, eddy Kenzo and Eddy yawe entertaining their guests to maximum. The Bobi
wine family proved its true talent when Eddy Yawe who sang with Afrigo band
pulled a super live concert for his young brother Bobi Wine. The other notable
artists who performed before Bobi Wine took the stage were Maddox
Ssematimba,Iryn Namubiru,Dj Michael, General Mega Dee, Afrigo Band, Desire
Luzinda.The Ngoni,Nubian Li,Casanova , Henry Chogm(sorry I meant Tigan)and the
big man himself Navio.During these performances , the corporate companies which
made the show a success were given interludes for advertising. These included
Club beer (main sponsor), events ware house, Capital FM, beat f.m, UBC television
and radio, Housing Finance bank and Coca cola.

The real start and indeed the Climax
of the Carolina show came at 11:35, when the Mc of the day finally welcomed
The President of the Republic of Uganja onto the stage. Amidst wild and lovely cheers,
the Ghetto president who was dressed in a black security guards uniform with
the word”Ghetto” written on to its back stepped on stage bouncing as usually.
Unlike the late days were he usually steps on to stage in the company of his
entire cabinet, yesterday was a different day and indeed a day of history as
Bobi Wine only bounced on stage together with his two young but promising
talents in the names of Casanova (super lover lover) and the first son of the
republic of ujanga (Solomon Kampala) who joined him as soon as the father
started singing. Kampala together with his dear father bobi Wine pulled out new
and advanced dancing styles that left the all audience wondering about which dancing
school Kampala goes to. Bobi Wine who looked so happy but humbled immediately
started a non stop action with popular hits such as Badman from Kamwokya with
the legend himself Navio, Aneganye with Henry Tigan. He later presented songs
like Adam and Haawa,ghetto,abulungi Balumya,promise,Wesotinge.Ayagala Muras,Wendi,Mazzi
Mawanvu,akagoma,singa,Ekiloto e.t.c.During all these live performances Bobi
Wine showed competence has continuously took on afree style presentation to
show his fans what he is actually made of.As he sang he continuously gave
different messages to different categories of people.

Bobi who looked so sob yesterday
as usual went controversial when he first thanked all the leaders for the good
things they have done but later condemned them for failing the Ghetto people
yet according to his research 85% of Ugandans live In Ghettos. His condemnation
mainly fell in to the ears Of Mayor Ssebagala seeya, Chairman Kalungi and
Chairman Nyakaana who were all seated in the audience.As he advised the
leaders, the audience continuously mentioned the name of Seeya accusing him of
promising and failing to deliver. Bobi Wine with his edutainment style of
presentation later on turned into a pastor and he decided to pray for the dear
country Uganda. This was after him singing his controversial but superb song
“Ekiloto” were he dreams of seeing Mubajje and Kayongo reconciling,H.E Museveni
and Besiegye also coming to understanding terms and he also dreams of
reconciling with his popular enemy Bebe cool. When he began praying, the crowd
turned wild as he showed classic versions of praying and indeed you would not
get a difference between him and Pastor Ben Hinn.He later left the stage for a
break before he would finally step up for the final presentation. During this
short interval, Barbie also got a chance to perform live on stage. She together
with other well dressed Ankole girls presented two traditional songs.

The
real climax reached when Bobi Wine returned on stage well dressed in a
traditional wear. He together with the traditional performers finally launched
the Carolina album. However the concert ended pre mature when it clocked
1:30a.m.The venue management threatened to close the gates and thus Bobi Wine
who looked unconvinced performed his last Hit titled Carolina. During this
extra ordinary performance, the question of the day was finally answered. All
of us who attended came out of the gates knowing who the real Carolina was
basing on the clue the president gave on that very matter. Among  the top names that attended the concert were
Hajji Seeya Ssebagala,Chairman Nyakana and Kalungi plus a group from the
Buganda kingdom led by Prince Junju and Owek.Kabuzamukasa.To all those who attended,
all their money was utilized efficiently and none left the show complaining

I always  wish the good old days could get back. If you were old enough in the mid, late 90s & early 2000s, you truly know that, those were good days, when we didn’t have so much but we had fun to the fullest, if you really wanted to hung out in the best nite spots, I guess you know what Sabrina’s Pub always brought to the table, I remember seeing majority of today’s big stars when they did music from their heart, and all they cared about was to showcase talent. The most notable ones included Juliana, Irene Numubiru, Micheal Chris, Chameleone,Bebecool,Chizzo,Kucklee and the rest. Every time the karaoke nite was on, they always came out and gave it their best.

 

 No one cared about the money, their mission was to showcase that Uganda really had talent all thanks to the proprietor Hope Mukasa, who came with  the vision after returning from Europe and he felt this was the only way you could tap talent, I think all these guys owe him a lot basing on  the fact that he always provided a platform for them to showcase their talent, each and every week. Though to him, he says it gives me a lot of pride and joy, watching all these big stars today, and the great work they’re doing to educate, entertain and represent our nation,.

 Hope Mukasa says that talent didn’t stop with their generation because there’s still lots of potential out their but people just need to be discovered. In his words Hope says, “As pioneers of karaoke in this country, we brought this here, and everyone started doing it, we stepped out, and we have watched all those who do it and that’s why we have decided to redo it , because we are the masters of this, we’re bringing back karaoke nites at Sabrina’s Pub, everyone out their who really feels they got talent should come to the place, where it all started”.

 

SABRINA’S PUB has got whole new PA sound equipment plus original karaoke tracks from the US. It looks even bigger and better than it has ever been, with a sports bar, games section and a very beautiful garden. It has been fully colour branded by Nile breweries and come the 12th of dec 2009, we will be launching the karaoke nite which will feature some of the big stars today like NAVIO, GNL, GRACE NAKIMERA, CINDY and many more. The finals will be in the last week of the year and JAMAL the son of Karaoke himself will be their to crown the winner (MR or MRS SABRINA’S). Lots of goodies like free recording contracts are to be won.

Football finally out.

0

When I speakof football most of you out there will immediately focus your on Ronaldo, kaka
or Arsenal. This time round you are all mistaken, I mean to say that the
football video is out.

Its not a video about a football match as many of presume
but rather a music Video of a popular local single titled football. On its
first audio airwaves play football by Betty Mpologoma began winning hearts as it
not only exposed the cheating habits of city girls but also proved to many that Betty has ability.
As  the saying goes[Ayina potential]’this
lady is proving it right.

For such along time she has released hits that have
left many with no breathing space.The most popular is Teli Police which drove
many crazy.On her return from the accident she suffered a month ago when armed
robbers tried to take her dear life, Betty Mpologoma decided to Shoot a killer
Video which was to thank all those who have been with her this long.

When your
watch this new video, your first opinion about it is whether the shots were
taken from California by Hollywood  stars.
Forget about Vimbulia or Mr.Dj, football is a classic video with nice texture
and a reasonable dressing code.Betty mpologoma,I think you are on the right
track and very soon you will make it to Uganda’s female big size.

Whitney Houston Out Promoting Her Brand New Album

0

Whitney Houston took the stage to perform live on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in New York City yesterday (September 1). Whitney Houston was joined by hosts Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts, the “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” singer belted out her new tunes to the large crowd gathered at Rumsey Playfield. Of the new album, Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote, “Seven years after her last album of pop songs, two years after her divorce, Whitney Houston re-emerges with full diva qualifications on ‘I Look to You,’ released Monday. Most of its revelations aren’t verbal; they’re in the husky, vehement sound of her voice but pretty attractive and interesting.” The album seems to be an interesting one , and mush calling for the fans to get back to the fans base of the pop star. The Washington Post stated, “I Look to You is a finely calibrated, just-modern-enough mix of mom-friendly club bangers and dauntless ballads that, in retrospect, seems like the only album she could have made.” Please stay logged in to catch more interesting stories right here

Kawaala on Fire

0

Saturday 28thNovember 2009, saw one reknown and most populated suburb of Kampala city on
fire as the Uganda’s most favorite band Eagles production blazed Jomica Motel
with classic performances.

Our snoops
had passed by a few days before and saw banners advertising the Eagles but we
all thought it was another Kiwani as it has always been in pubs around Kampala.
My dear this time by 9:30 the whole eagles crew was at Jomica Motel. Seated out
at the veranda were the Eagles superstars like Seruga, Geoffrey Lutaaya,
Catherine Kusasila, and Doreen Nantume among others. The men among this group
were all dressed in their respective premiership T-shirts, Arsenal was most
sounding.

At 10:00pm
it was time to get the fans what they have always wanted and as the saying
goes, Ladies First , Indeed it was the ladies first and Doreen got it right
when she had a 30 minutes now stop live performance.

After
Doreen setting the club on fire, it was now an easy way through for the rest
since they all came to add an over does to their fans, every single artist had
a minimum of 30 minutes performance full of fans cheers and gratefulness.

For a value
of 5000 Ugandan shillings, the Eagles fans in Kawaala Got the show at zero
price in my own view.

The show
had over 2500 people who attended and drinks were the order of the day.
