Need to remember the good old days? Then this is the show for you. Uganda Waragi and Sprout Events last week announced a partnership to organize a show dubbed “Tugende mu Kikadde”. The show is slated for May 6th, 2017 at the Kampala Serena Hotel and will feature performances by Ugandan music icons; Afrigo Band, Halima Namakula, Mariam Ndagire and Kabuye Semboga in a 3 hour music extravaganza.

The event was announced at a press launch that was held at Uganda Breweries offices in Luzira.

Announcing the show, Roy Tumwizere, Brand Manager, Uganda Waragi said the show would be a musical journey reminiscent of the passage Ugandan music has undergone over the past years. “This show will give us the opportunity to enjoy some of the best Ugandan classics performed by musicians who we grew up listening to. These icons set the stage for what we now see as the different Ugandan musical genres. Uganda Waragi is happy to enable this experience that will showcase our great Ugandan talent and heritage,” he said.

The event will feature a red carpet at arrivals and the dress code will be vintage to suit the event theme. It is being organized in partnership with Sprout Events. Tickets are being sold at UGX100,000 for VIP and VVIP at UGX5,000,000 a table. They are available at all PayWay outlets.

“Tugende mu Kikadde” means “Back to our roots”. Its purpose is to relive some of our unforgettable memories through music. This is a show that can be enjoyed by both the young people and the older generation. It will be a night of great Ugandan music and we invite you all to attend and celebrate our unique heritage,” said Patrick Kalungi of Sprout Africa.

Addressing the press, Afrigo band founding members, Joanitah Kawalya and Paul Matovu promised to deliver a great show which will include the band’s classics and a showcase of their best work yet.
