“I come from a place called Spanish Town in Jamaica and Kampala reminds me of Spanish town” Chronixx told the revellers.
Hundreds of Reggae lovers stormed the Kisaasi-based Ndere Cultural Centre where the first edition of the Kampala ‘Love Live Music’ series of concerts was successfully held. It was a fun-filled Reggae night that saw revellers come in high spirits ready to catch the ‘Here Comes Trouble’ singer live on stage.
As usual,the best is saved for last but first, Dj Mercy was warming up a promising number of fans at 7:11pm with the best of Reggae music as more revellers flocked in. Reggae music was the only genre played and fans were heard asking for more, although the Djs mixed and threw in a few Dancehall tunes which is considered a ‘sister genre’.
Dj Roja later took the turn tables from Mercy and also threw the crowd into frenzy with more Reggae songs like ‘Ganja Planter’ that saw some pull out what looked like marijuana blunts to smoke. Smoking weed at such concerts is usually ‘allowed’ no wonder.
NBS TV’s MC Kats later opened the show by inviting Janzi band on stage. The live band took the fans on a journey of live Reggae music, miming songs like ‘Cocody Rock’, ‘Gimme Likkle One Drop’, ‘Sorry Is A Sorry Word’, ‘Ganja Planter’ and Bob Marley’s ‘Iron Lion Zion’.
On form Dancehall artiste A Pass followed next and he excited the crowd performing songs like ‘So High’, ‘Wuuyo’, ‘Tetubatya’, ‘Babylon Bwoy’ and ‘Tuli Kubigere’. Da Party People dance crew came next and as usual, their on-point dance moves entertained the crowd.
Dancehall diva Cindy followed next and she was simply flawless. Dressed in short, sexy ‘Kitenge’ attire together with her four queen dancers, she performed ‘Party’, ‘Love’, ‘Dilemma’ alongside Bobi Wine, ‘One And Only’, ‘Still Standing’ and ‘Ndi Mukodo’. Later there was a short showcase from Latiff, an award-winning Afro Fashion Magician who sewed a ladies’ dress in less than 10 minutes.
Dressed in a Rasta head gear, a navy blue jacket and T-shirt, ripped sky blue pants and a pair of brown Addidas shoes, Chronixx took to the stage at exactly 20 minutes past mid night amidst lots of ululations from the crowd who had earlier patiently waited for him till that time.
Coming in a Reggae vibe, Chronixx began his performance with jams like ‘Alpha and Omega’, ‘Start A Fyah’ ‘Roots and Chalice’, ‘Ain’t No Givin In’, ‘They Don’t Know’, ‘Champion’, ‘Most High’, ‘Thanks And Praises’, ‘Access Granted’, ‘Some Where’, ‘Smile Jamaica’, ‘Capture Land’ and ‘Ghetto People’, and ‘Here Comes Trouble’ which got the fans wild and grooving.
“Uganda are you ready for more Reggae music.” Chronixx asking as he engaged the already frenzied crowd.
‘Rasta Man Wheel Up’ and ‘Spirulina’, ‘Warrior’ and ‘Odd Ras’ were the songs he performed last. Those who attended the concert really had fun Chronixx is slated to perform in Nairobi later today.
