It was yet another exciting Sunday as Kampala party animals thronged Lugogo Cricket Oval for the 20th edition of the quarterly event Blankets and Wine that took place on 30th September. As usual, the gates were opened as early as midday but the revelers began marching in towards 3 PM, booking the best spots to sit as they waited to for the day’s activities to unfold
After A Ka Dope Band’s performance, rapper Lady Slyke took the revelers on a serious rap trip followed by another from veteran singer Joanitah Kawalya of Afrigo Band who serenaded the crowd as she performed tunes like ‘Vincent’, ‘Jim’, ‘Nfunda Nomubi’ among others that got the attendees who were crowded near the stage dancing and singing along
Live Dj performances from Dj Bank Robber and Kush followed later and they kept the revelers’ party mood as they waited for the next performer. With all the energy from South Africa, the Distruction Boyz duo consisting of Gold Max and Que took to the stage with lots of cheers from the revelers who were all fired up to watch them
The boyz got the crowd on their toes as they danced to their Gqom vibes. Que was on the wheels of steel where as Gold Max did the singing. They performed their songs like ‘Omunye’, ‘Shaku Shaku’ among others. Gold Max spiced their showcase pulling some rear dance moves
After another live Dj session that came shortly after Distruction Boys, the main headliner Ykee Benda’s time came. At exactly 9:10 PM he took to the stage performing ‘Farmer’, ‘Onabaayo’, ‘Kyenkyebula’, ‘Muna Kampala’, ‘Singa’, ‘Kireka Boy’, ‘Time Table’ before he fixed a time to mourn the late Mowzey Radio by singing his song like ‘Neera’ before Weasel with whom they performed Radio and Weasel’s ‘Talk and Talk’
Ykee performed almost all his songs and the fans did not bore him, they sang along and danced to his songs.
