The Yusuf Lule road based Golf Course Hotel’s Banquet Hall was last Friday night (the 21st of April) filled by fans who came to watch American Grammy award winning disk jockey Diplo who is the founding member of renowned electronic music trio Major Lazer.

Starting off by as early 7 PM, the highly anticipated VIP and VVIP Diplo Live Uganda show organised by Talent Africa Group and sponsored by Club Pilsener kept the attendees in real party mood up to 11:46 PM when Diplo took the wheels of steel to officially unveil what he had in stock for his Ugandan fans. Clad in a red Uganda Cranes Jersey, he played the best of urban and some local music which the crowd excitedly danced to, pulling all different kinds of dance strokes on top of ululating.

“I have been in Uganda for four days now and it is one of the beautiful places I have been before.” Diplo told the revellers as he showcased what he does best on the turn tables before inviting his fellow Major Lazor member Dj/MC Walshy Fire who did the emceeing for him.

The show truly thrilled the encouraging number of revellers who filled both the VIP and VVIP sections of the venue. Unlike other shows, this one had no headlining artistes but attendees were kept entertained by other headlining Djs instead like Sir Aluda, Kampire, BK and RPM who played before Diplo.
