Radio made it clear that this was a show for their fans and indeed it turned out to be so as ardent fans of the duo showed up for their Omwana Wa Baandi album launch in good numbers last night at Hotel Africana despite a call from opposition politicians to boycott their shows for supporting the ruling NRM party and President Yoweri Museveni.
Dr Jose Chameleone and Big Size Bebe Cool were among the many artistes who performed at the album Launch that successfully went down at hotel’s parking space yesterday evening hosted by emcees Kats, Daggy Nice, Percy and Esco.
As early as 7:30pm, fun, entertainment and live music performances from headlining artistes ruled the air waves. Artistes like Ragga veteran Mad Tiger excited the crowd as he performed his ‘Fe Tuliko’ and ‘Obulamu Bwensi’ songs. Barbie Jay followed next and later Tip Swizy whose dance moves got the fans wild.
The Ghetto Kids also wowed the crowd with their dance strokes, ushering in more performances from Phantom Lovins, Hajji Haruna Mubiru, Mary Bata, Santana and Aziz Azion. The excited crowd demanded for more performances which the hosts responded to as more artistes were invited on stage like Beenie Gunter, Mun G, Fille, Maro, Pallaso and Big Size Bebe Cool.
At Exactly 10:54pm, the main men of the night Radio and Weasel finally graced the stage amidst ululations and loud cheers from the crowd who had long waited for them. Each smartly dressed in black shoes, trousers, white shirts, black bowties and silver coats, the duo performed songs like ‘Talk’, ‘Nkwetaga’, ‘Bread and Butter’, ‘Ngenda Maaso’, ‘Kirimanyi’, ‘Kuku’, ‘Breath Away’, ‘Every Thing I Do’, ‘Fitting’, ‘Bikoola’ alongside Irene Ntale, ‘Kankuganye’ alongside Mun G, and later Pallaso joined them as they performed ‘Amaaso’
Self proclaimed Heavy Weight Dr Jose Chameleone then followed and the crowd got into frenzy as he performed ‘Wale Wale’, ‘Mbona Umeniacha’, ‘Valu Valu’ and a repeat of ‘Wale Wale’. “Some Idiots said that this show was not going to happen, but I thank you so much for supporting Radio and Weasel and loving Ugandan Music.’ He said.
After the Chamelone’s performance, Radio and Weasel returned for their last session and performed ‘Magnetic’, ‘Juicy’ and ‘Omwana W’abandi’. From the chants and action seen from the crowd, the fans seemed to be happy with what they saw as the performances came to an end at midnight.
