There were Ullulations and shouts of joy as the count down hit 5,4,3,2,1 and 0 then that magical shout ‘Happy New Year’ as Ugandans joined the rest of the world in sending off the year 2015 and welcoming 2016.
The most colorful celebrations usually take place in Kampala and last night was no different as people of all ages, color and race poured onto the streets to celebrate. The main centers of attraction were at Sheraton Hotel, Hilton and Kampala Serena Hotels where dramatic fireworks lit the skies at the stroke of midnight.
As has become customary every end of year, hundreds of Ugandano and other nationals trecked their way to kamapala Sheraton Hotel to join in the festivities as they ushered in the New Year in style. In a special event organised by Uganda Waragi dubbed the UG Mix Dance Patry, the party surely was in full swing.
With performances from celebrated Ugandan artists like Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleone, Juliana Kanyomozi, Sheebah to mention but a few the crowd was entertained to the fullest.
King Saha, Ziza Bafana, Jose Chameleone, Bebe Cool, Irene Namubiru and Bobi Wine warmed up the night before Naira Ali crowned it all paving way for the dance mix presented by top Djs in the house headed by Nimrod. As Usual, Sheraton Hotel presented the best sight for firewworks dispaly because of it’s strategic location.
We at Chano8 wish you all a prosperous New Year 2016.
