Yesterday night marked four years of the annual ‘Night In The Emirates Party’ hosted by Nickita Bachu and sponsored by Luc Belaire and Flames Events. It always comes in the second week of January which to many people in Kampala and the country at large is a ‘hard’ month financially but the gig was well attended at the Bukoto based Cayenne Restaurant and Longue where the previous edition was held last year.
It was a red carpet kind of set up and eye-catching decor that saw revellers pose for photos by journalists and it was also noticed that Asians came in large numbers and the Asian dress code dominated amongst the attendees in sync with the theme night who came in a real New Year party mood, sipping on their favourite drinks and some smoking Shisha.
As all that was happening, Dj Grace was on the wheels of steel entertaining the early birds, playing classic Reggae songs from artistes like Marlon Asher, Richie Spice, Chronixx, Everton Blender among others, although he later changed to other genres until the first performer Dj Bobby took over the decks from him. He took the crowd on serious music mix journey that saw revelers shake it like there is no tomorrow.
At a quarter to 1 am, the party host Nickitah Bachu and her entourage arrived at the venue amid a warm welcome from her husband Gareth, the ushers, journalists and some revellers who marched with her up her reserved VIP seat.
Her arrival was like a fresh start of the party as the guest Dj Heavy Q from Boston shortly took the turn tables for his performance. He played the best of the local and international hit songs that threw the fans into frenzy not only because of the music but also the dancers who entertained the revellers with their erotic dance moves.
Dj Crisio was the last performer who took the fans through the after party and the event went on up to 3:30 Am.
If this party keeps the pace it is at, It will turn into one of the most sought for annual events in Kampala. Among the attendees was radio presenter Big Kauna, Sams Kaggwa of Laftaz Comedy Lounge, Zuena Kirema, CEO Roofings Uganda Mr Lalana, Singer Rena Nalumansi, Fashion designer Kim Swagga, Club Play’s boss Ali and video jockey Junior among others.
