Last night marked the end of the three-day feast of music, dance, theatre, film, and visual arts at the Kampala-based National Theatre. From Friday (day 1), revellers were part of this amazing gig the Bayimba International Festival of the arts sponsored by Bell Lager
The first 2 days had amazing acts from the home stars that took centre stage but last night was more thrilling with the Guest performer Akua Naru a rapper from the United States of America exciting the crowd with Hip Hop vibe.
Starting off the night’s performances on the main stage was gospel singer Exodus who had a jaw-dropping performance as he took the crowd on a gospel music trip doing most of his songs and among them was ‘Omwaka Guno’ which ignited the dancing spirit in the crowd.
He later invited a friend and fellow gospel singer Levixone with whom they did a brief freestyle session that added onto the fans excitement as Exodus concluded his performance. During their performance, Mighty Son and Mr Mosh were showcasing serious live free style Dance-hall rhymes on stage two, that got the crowd cheering them on.
Back to the main stage, all the way from South Africa, Tribute Birdie Mboweni was the next performer and the revellers enjoyed her performance as she performed her soul songs like ‘Mpfula Ya Na’, ‘Khomanani’ and ‘Soul n Heart’.
Without a waste of time, the guest headliner Akua Naru a rapper from USA, took to the stage at 10 minutes past 10 PM amid a lot of ululations from the crowd which kept on making her blush even as she put up a big performance.
She was truly energetic doing her thing live and so was the crowd as some were seen dancing their excitement off. Golden Band’s Ronald Mayinga was the last performer of the night and he did his songs like ‘Tuwalana Nguzi’, ‘Necklace’, ‘Doreen’ among many other and the event went on till late in the night.
