They say experience is the best teacher and indeed for a person like producer Washington real names Washington David Ebangit who made 20 years in the music industry, he could not just let it pass without commemorating the huge milestone. Come April the 17th (Easter Monday) ‘The Magic Washington Legacy’ show that will be held at the Acacia Avenue-based Casablanca bar is the one show you would not like to miss.
A lot is in stock and all fans should do, is brace themselves for a breathtaking action-packed show that will have live band performances, live Dj mixing and several other activities like give a ways, sale of branded materials among others. The event which is sponsored by SMS ONE, Chano8, Njanko Land and Property Developers, Hot House of Talent- South Sudan, Flex Events and Roots Retreat and Camping Resort indeed promises a lot
When Chano8 sat down with Washington for an exclusive interview, this is what he told us about what is expected;
“This show is going to be different, I am going to put people into my mind and show them what my mind thinks and how my mind would want artistes to be and the performances are going to be different. At 4PM that day we are going to have a Congolese band because I want the people to remember where we came from and there is also going to a lot of Reggae and Dancehall music, it is so much involved in our music industry and I also have cultural music because our music in composed of these three” He said
But why did he have to call it the Washington Legacy?
“The name Washington has gone beyond Uganda and East Africa and the reason why I called it legacy is because my works are not dead. They are actually working. On the day of the show, I will sell some branded T Shirts, CD’S, Flash drives, some books to teach people how to move around the entertainment industry especially if you are a producer”. He explained.
However, according to the show’s artwork, there are performances from artistes like Ziza Bafana, Cindy, Mr Mosh, Bruno K, Silver X (South Sudan) Nina Rose, Sir Latif and City Rock Entertainment and Djs Fikie and Faisal. But we all know that apart from producing, Washington is an artiste as well. So will he perform as well?
“On my show am going to perform some of my songs from my place (Teso) because am an Itesoit by Tribe so the whole legacy is about that, let us come together see how my walk has been 20 years”. He proudly said said with a beaming smile.
