Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine, Megga Dee, Benon & Vamposs live in LA
End of Summer bash by Julie Erusa

The venue of the bash was the Jewish Community Centre on the 15th of September and the show was organized by Hem Dee Kiwanuka.
What started as a slow simple night was short lived with the USA curfew of 2:00 AM, many of us have already adjusted to after getting used to the shows or life continuing into the wee hours of the night or even till morning. The ladies all dressed to kill in short skirts or shorts and the men looking their best  all came in to support their own artists.

The show began at midnight and the guests were seated like they were going to have a dinner of some sort. For the early guests, they were treated to the continuous advertising of the sponsors of the show that by the time the show started they were probably tired. We were also treated to some ugly mixing skills of a DJ I think knew nothing about Ugandan Music.  The DJ who saved the day was “Humphrey” I would like to consider him the American Shiru.  You can always catch him at the Nile Spot (the only Ugandan Club in LA) on Saturdays and Fridays.

Babaluku & Krayzie native a.k.a Saba Saba

The show started with Benon & Vamposs stepped on stage and did their dancehall, R’n’B thing where they performed their porpular songs like Nsazewo, Mumullette, My Lady, and many more.  Krayzie Native a.k.a Saba Saba together with Babaluku graced the day too and he came up support their brother.  By the time these two left the stage the crowd was still asking for more.

Megga Dee came on next on stage, clad in army uniform and marching like a soldier.  This too got our current UNAA President, Lt. Musisis who is also a soldier on his feet dancing.  He performed songs like Afande, Maama  toyobessa baaba, Tear Gas, and many more. We later had him loss the army shirt and stick to the vest. Here it was time to dance.  He tied it around his waist and took it the cultural way back to the roots. This shock his better than most girls that I know.

Bobi Wine, the president of Fire Base Crew steps on stage and starts to paying tribute to a friend, Weather Man by performing “Wekuume” .  He performed songs like Bada, Kiwani, Kabaseke, Mama wa Baana. To grace the stage was our own Desire from WBS who acted as Juliana Kanyomozi a part that she played so well.  You know nothing lasts forever it was 2:00 AM and the show had to end.  They soon invited the audience to an extension of their performances at the only open club Nile Spot which happens to be the only club open at that time.
