Despite a number of shows happening on the same day including the Pulse Jam Fest featuring Chronixx, singer and multi-instrumentalist Kenneth Mugabi still proved that he has a place in Uganda’s entertainment industry.
The ‘Kibunomu’ singer pulled a mammoth crowd during the Kenneth Mugabi Live At Fezah show where he launched his ‘Ugandan’ album at Design Hub in Industrial Area, Kampala. The album consists of 13 songs including ‘Embeera’, ‘Ebinyuma’, ‘Oliwa’ and ‘Nkwegomba’ which many are familiar with.
The Afro-Neo-Soul artiste was also joined on stage by some artistes he collaborated with on this album including Angella Kalule, Lillian Mbabazi, Irene Namubiru and Maureen Nantume.
Mugabi kick started his performance at 8.30 PM and his back-up line that included Eugene on the drums, Aloysius Migadde on the lead guitar, Happy Kyazze on the saxophone, Lawrence Matovu on bass, Ronnie Bukenya on keys with Marsha and Sheba Mwiza on the backup vocals were enough to give the show an extra mileage.
His performance was breath-taking in that the audience tried to sing along to some of the songs they didn’t know and it was totally another story to those that knew like ‘Nkwegomba’, Kibunomu’ and ‘Naki’.
When the performances were done, some people in the crowd requested Kenneth to re-do some songs and being an obedient artiste, he accepted their request but they still wanted him to keep on performing but the only solution to their requests was for them to buy this album which was going for Ug Shs 30,000.
