KAMPALA– Golden Papa Mesach Ssemakula has on Friday 14, June 2019 awarded various performers.
Most of the awarded recipients were comedians and fellow music artists who included; Hon. Kato Lubwama, Andrew Benon Kibuuka, Meddy Nsereko Ssebuliba, Sarah Kabenge, Hajji Musa Kavuma, Maureen Nantume, Ronald Mayinja and many others.
The legendary music icon praised the award recipients for being there for him through his long musical journey that started way back in 1993.
Ssemakula was performing at his musical concert dubbed “Bwagamba Musical Experience” at Hotel Africana in Kampala and His Majesty Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II was the chief guest to grace the event.
Mesach who was on bended knees requested the Kabaka to allow him award these people as a sign of appreciation.
“His majesty allow me to thank my mentors who helped me musically, financially and morally ever since I started this musical journey. I was poor, I had nothing but they were there for me and have walked with me up to now,” Mesach requested.
He added saying that by the time he started music with Eagles production, he was young and these are the people who directed him on what to do to boost his talent and musical career.
“This team of people you see have made me what I am today, they mentored me in this music career when I was young and I feel indebted if I don’t thank them. I really have very many people to thank in life”, he added
Recently, Ssemakula was honoured by the Kabaka at his 64th birthday celebrations where he gave him a title of ‘SIR’ with a special certificate for his enormous contribution towards the Buganda Kingdom.
“Bwagamba Experience” concert was a success and will always be a memorable event as this is the first concert to be attended by the Kabaka. The Golden Papa performed all his songs since he started the music.
The concert will continue with its subsequent shows lined up at Colline Hotel in Mukono on Saturday 15 June, Luweero on Sunday 16 June, Zebra Spot Kira on Friday 21, June, Kyotera on Saturday, 22, June and Maria Flo in Masaka on Sunday 23 June this year.
