Balaam Barugahara, the music concert promoter has disputed the social media allegations that the government and him had a hand in stopping the show.

He says the government can never stop a show for its one (gov’t) to benefit more out of it.

“VAT is collected on venue hire & ticket sales, VAT is collected on fuel and transport to the venue.”

“VAT is collected on drinks sales Beer, water and soda so it’s in the good interest of Government the show to be there,” Balaam educated the public.

He says its cancellation from 20th October was as a result of lack of contract between organizers and Stadium management.

“With Namboole mgt clearance, I am sure you will be cleared by the security. Good luck to Hon Bobi and your organizers/ promoters,” he said.

Kyarenga concert was supposed to take place this Saturday 20th; however, due to the management of the stadium failure to clear it out, the police had to stop it.
