We all know that MCs are less appreciated for work the they do at different events like concerts, shows, wedding parties name it. No local MC has ever come out to celebrate their ‘MC Life’ but on Friday the 28th of December, Kats real name Katamba Edwin did the unthinkable with the ‘King Of The Mic’ party which was aimed at nothing but celebrating his life as an MC
For the past couple of months, Kats has been hyping this NBS TV and Africell powered event and it finally came to pass at the Acacia Avenue based Wave Lounge where hundreds of his fans and well wishers gathered to have an experience of what the event had to offer.
They were treated to an action packed-nonstop dose of entertainment from Uganda’s most famous MCs and Djs without forgetting the local artistes who excited the crowd till the wee hours of Saturday mourning

In between every performance or two, Kats came out to engage the crowd as he told fans how he made in life as star MC. He also called on stage veteran MC J Kazoora who groomed him to the level he is right now.
