Organised by House Of Djs Uganda and powered by Tusker Malt Lager, last year at the 15th edition of Blankets Wine Kampala, Tanzania’s Alikiba left revellers asking for more and for close to four months later, fans had been waiting for the 16th edition that went down successfully last Sunday the 30th of April at Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala.
Going to take place three times and no longer four like the previous years, this edition had a bigger number of headlining performers who entertained the attendees especially basing on one fact that most of the music genres from Reggae, Dancehall, RnB, Hip Hop and Soul were represented by the artistes.
The afternoon drizzle that first changed the weather in Kampala did not hinder people from thronging Lugogo and dressed to impress in different fashion styles with the ladies taking the lead, revellers began marching in the venue as early as 4PM and later were seen booking the best spots near the stage to enjoy the performances which were kicked off by Pelinda, Essie, Apio Moro, Afrie and Joash on a good note.
As the crowd grew bigger, more performances came from Byg Ben who excited the fans in a Hip Hop vibe before Reggae crooner Daniel Lemma alongside Hot This Year band, put up a spectacular Reggae showcase. With all the excitement, fans crowded near the stage to watch Legendary Afrigo Band’s performance who were the next performers.
Dj Rachael did a good job of making sure that the crowd did not get bored every time performers left the stage, with live Dj mixes although there were other Djs who showcased like BK, RPM and Bank Robber.
The last performances came in from Kenya’s Muthoni the Drummer Queen who showcased her skills in singing, and dancing together with Dancers and finally Cindy who was welcomed with ululations from the crowd. She performed songs like ‘Amateeka’, ‘Still Standing’, ‘Ayokya’, ‘Love’ among others alongside her dancers too.
In a nut shell, the event went down successfully with lots of celebrities and socialites in attendance like Anne Kansiime, Keko, Hellen Lukoma, Ivan Boss Ssemwanga, King Lawrence, The Mith, Mun G, Dj Roja, Leila Kayondo, Aly Alibhai, Stella Nantumbwe, Natasha Sinayobe and many others.
