Myco Chris Launches His Massive single “Kabiite Wange”.
Myco Chris, the new music sensation, behind the hit single “Zino Enaku”, “Kabiite Wange” finally announces his presence with a massive launch party of his hit single “Kabiite Wange” in Club Volts, in Edmonton-London UK. Myco Chris, one of Uganda’s best music producers, singer/songwriter launched the much awaited, and most air-played “Kabiite Wange” single with a lot of pomp and fanfare. The show was sponsored by the weekend Xpress, Club Volts, 360° Management and Promotions, and www.findugandanbusiness.com, and Uganda Entrepreneurs Network.
Due to unforeseen logistical constraints, and personal requests, the show’s start time was postponed from the advertised 8pm start, to 10pm, as Myco awaited some fans that were flying in from Denmark and Germany. The revellers and fans that had arrived in time, where entertained by VJ OJ and DJ Ken to their Club Volts music selection, as they enjoyed refreshments and danced away.
The show kicked off promptly when the awaited fans arrived at the club, with a short speech from Myco Chris, and introduction of his Manager, one Moses, who was the MC of the Night. The first act of the night was a young lad called J. Street, who sang, “Nkala” a song about beef and the need for togetherness. This was followed by a track called “Omubiri” a song about life.
The next act on stage was Lyton Namubiru, a singer, actor and model who hyped the crowd with her groovy tracks, and silky vocals singing “Gwe Weka”, followed by “Omutima” one of her famous YouTube music videos.
Everyone was at this moment appreciating the ensemble of talent that Myco Chris Productions and 360° Management and Promotions had mustered. By now the fans were all dancing to every hit and chanting, Myco’s name. The tempo was stepped up when Fada Pest stepped on stage and belted out his dancehall track “Grace”. This was followed by “Ekibeyibe” a track about a beautiful babe. His performance was very memorable because he danced with fans from the audience and engaged each of them as he blew them away with his Jamaican style performance.
Nelly K. aka Nelly Kibirige, a songstress graced the stage with her English track suitably titled, “It’s been a long time coming.” The crowed was thrown aback by her soulful vocals, and stage presence. Her second song was called “Sirikawo” a lullaby track she wrote to get her baby to sleep while on holiday in France. When asked, she said soon as I came back to London, “I went to Myco Chris’s studio, gave him the material, and he effortlessly came up with the massive beat.” Her groovy “Sirikawo” track was then followed by “Yimbira Wagulu” a song about people being thankful for life and what they have. She was joined on stage by admiring fans, as she sang and danced away.
At about 2am the much awaited star of the night was unveiled by the manager amid ululations and chanting of “Myco Chris we love you!” We love Myco Chris!” from the fans. At this time, many more people had converged on Club Volts and it was standing room only. The patronage was a rainbow of all nations; a cosmopolitan affair!
It took Myco Chris a good 10 minutes to walk through the crowd to the stage as the fans engulfed him with hugs and kisses. This was a planned move by Myco’s management team and Club Volts, with a background idea which was to break away from the usual aloft-performer-audience norm, where the audience and fans have little contact with the performer. Myco and his management team wanted him to commune and mix with the fans.
Myco Chris thanked the audience for taking time to “hang-out” with him, especially on a Sunday. When the formalities where over, Myco was joined on stage by Sanyu, a UK-born British-Ugandan songstress. The duo burst into a song with “Dance”, a groovy, pop track which caused mayhem as the fans jumped and gyrated to Myco’s soulful and Sanyu’s velvety Vocal combination, to the crowds’ amazement.
At some point, Aydee of the famous “Ngoni” music group who had come to watch the show stepped in as the microphones were playing up. Thereafter, Myco, was joined on stage by the God-Father of “Luga-Flow” D’Lux aka Ibra to sing “Nyikira”, a song about the benefits of working hard like a slave and living large from the proceeds of one’s efforts. The crowd loved this song so much, as it resonated with the life in the Diaspora, where everyone works so hard and later lives a happy life.
The next track on the bill was “Sexy”, another English track that has received good airplay on various radio stations. On this particular song, Myco combined with D’Lux’s “LugaFlow” rap wowed the crowd. The duo seems to have been possessed by some kind of power like the angels of song, as he nailed the highs and lows so effortlessly; he left the crowd in a trance.
Myco slowed down the tempo with a live cover performance of Joe’s “No One Else Comes Close”. The ladies where swept off their feet with as they joined Myco in a sing-along. Yet again Myco displayed a unique vocal talent. This prompted Eddie of the “Ngoni” fame to say that it was “a performance and vocal display no one else can match.” Myco’s Key board player was Jonas Kumba a professional key boardist. He was too good with his fingers and keystroke display; he left the babes yearning for more. On the guitar was Guitarist Sam a South African genius whose performance was so splendid. The arrangement and presentation is one no other Ugandan artist of Myco’s age has been able to muster before.
Next on stage, Myco was rejoined by songbird Sanyu to do a cover version of “No Air” by Chris Brown and Jordin Sparks. The crowd first of all fell silent, as the duo again blew them away with their vocals. Then they joined in to sing the chorus. The babes and guys were all mesmerized by the duet. The crowd was left chanting “Sanyu!” and “Myco!”
After a short refreshment breather, Myco belted out his famous dad’s “Sirikusula” cover version track. “Sirikusula” was originally done by one of Uganda’s biggest music legends, Mr. Frank Mbalire and it was only fitting that his sibling did the song so much justice. The song has been tipped for many awards to come, and it’s off his upcoming debut album. All the Ugandan community at the venue burst into song and dance soon as Myco started belting out the song.
He was seen off stage by his operations manager, one Jerry Mulumba and Club Volts Manager, Jeff Suleiman, to Club Volts VIP, for the after party; where he mingled with other artists, signed autographs, talked to the press, and took pictures with his fans. Moses Mugga his manager thanked the artists, the management and staff of club Volts, and announced future shows in the summer with a mega album bash to follow shortly. The party continued till 6am, and the revellers left with everyone satisfied and convinced that no other artist has ever pulled off such a single’s launch.
