Having been in Uganda for the last seven years, Christopher Van Dogen alias Deejay Crisio called it quits to Uganda’s social life last Saturday at Panamera bar with a farewell party organized for him by Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) under its Love Scotch festival.
Crisio is headed back to his home country Netherlands to concentrate on raising his family which includes a Ugandan wife and a child as well as to pursue other business interests.
“I have been in Uganda for the past seven years and I must say I have enjoyed my time here. I am married to a Ugandan lady and I would like my children to experience the opportunities available back in the Netherlands.” he said.
He added that he is leaving Uganda because he wants his young family to experience the European life as well. He said this with teary eyes.
“The amazing Kampala night life got me hooked and I thus made the decision to stay here longer. I have to admit I will miss the Kampala night life. I will be coming back from time to time.”
Crisio came to Uganda as a researcher and was supposed to stay for a month but Uganda’s social life tipped him to become a deejay. Besides just being a deejay, he has been the General Manager of Talent Africa and among some of the biggest events he played at includes Neyo’s concert at Cricket Oval, two Sauti Sol events in Kampala, Kool and The Gang as well as mixing jams at Gekko lounge, Cayenne, Sky Lounge and others clubs and hangouts.
Dj Crisio has entertained at many of Kampala’s biggest concerts and parties such as Roast and Rhyme, Blankets and wine, Neyo’s concert and Sauti Sol’s concerts among others.
