Much as the turn up was not like as expected, it did not stop Maurice Kirya from performing and for sure if at all you were there, he put up a good performance. A big round of applause to Fenon Records who worked on the sound and lighting to near perfection.
Yesterday night, revellers were treated to the best of live music performance as Uganda’s King of Mwooyo (Soul music) held his solo and long awaited Kirya Live Concert which went down at Kampala Serena Hotel’s Victoria Ball Room.
Attendees began walking in by 7:30 PM and their attire symbolised they had come to watch and at the same time party with their favourite artiste. The excitement was written all over their faces even before Maurice got on stage and the number of revellers abandoned their seats and waited at the stage as they shouted ‘Maurice, Maurice, Maurice, Maurice’.
All this happened as the lights were turned off in preparation for his (Maurice Kirya) grand entrance. Wearing all black shades, leather jacket, T- shirt, pants and a brown pair of shoes, Maurice Kirya took the stage amidst lots of ululations from the crowd especially the ladies at 9:00 Pm.
Without a waste of time, he began his performance with lots of energy performing ‘Beera Naabo’ which excited the crowd when show time had just kicked off. Truly the revellers knew and sang along all the lyrics of all the tunes he performed live. He later performed ‘Nasiima Gwe’, ‘Nkooye’, ‘Angels Carried Me’ and ‘Musubawa’.
“We are here to party so when I say sing, sing. There is magic right here and Uganda is among the most talented countries in the world. “Maurice Kirya told the revellers. He later performed ‘The Blue Dress song’ and later introduced his friend Myko Ouma, a singer and guitarist with whom they performed ‘Nkulinze’.
The excitement kept on from start to end of the concert as the ladies mostly showed Maurice the love from the way they were cheering him on stage. He later performed ‘I Will Sing’, ‘Ugandan Girl’ and ‘Boda Boda’. He then invited another singer and guitarist Kenneth Mugabi who wowed the crowd with his ‘Naki’ song which acted as his break for him (Maurice Kirya).
In the second and final part, Maurice performed ‘Mulembe Gwa Kirya’, ‘Hold On’, ‘If My Lung Don’t Fail Me’, ‘Mama We made It’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Busabala’ and finally concluded the concert at exactly 11:13pm with ‘Never Been Loved’.
Wait for more picture of the sights you missed at the concert tomorrow!!!!!
