KAMPALA – The much-anticipated shows for the Congolese artiste Mr. Awilo Longomba are all set this Friday, April 5 and Sunday, April 7 at Serena Hotel Kampala and Greenlight Stadium Onduparaka in Arua.
Mr. Longomba last performed in Uganda 20 years ago and this will be his second time to step in Uganda. The France-based musician is also the king of Techo Soukous and he doubles as team leader for the ‘Nouvelle Generation Band’ that he formed after breaking away from ‘Viva la Musica’ in 1995.
Mr. Vincent Nsubuga, the CEO of Cent Events, said: “I thank all the media houses and sponsors for being part of us since November when I contacted Awilo. Surely it has been a long journey and we welcome you to Kampala and to Arua.”
He added: “We promise you the best and we shall have him for a long time here. All is set for his major show on Friday.”
Ms. Annette Nakiyaga, the luxury portfolio manager at Uganda Breweries Limited, said: “Under our flagship brand Singleton which is the best in the world, we promise to give you all the best come Friday. We shall deliver an exceptional experience at a five-star hotel.”
“I am very excited to be here today and promise to give you my best with my band,” said Mr. Longomba.
Mr. Longomba is very popular for his songs like Coupe Bibamba, Gate le Coin, Karolina, Enemy Solo (featuring P Square), among others.
The concert has been organised by Cent Events together with corporate partners such as Singleton, Capital FM, NTV, Serena Hotel, and Pilsner, among others.
