They say, ‘Try and fail but never fail to try’. This is a saying that everyone should have for a successful career but Gravity Omutujju took his dream a little higher than what we expected.
The ‘Musomesa’ artiste while performing at David Lutalo’s ‘Onsanuula’ concert recently, promised the crowd that his next show is happening at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, a venue that many artistes including international and award winning ones have failed to fill. “Come October the 8th, I will be having my concert at Cricket Oval.” he said amidst cheers from fans
What has made artistes like Sisqo, Boyz 11 Men, Alaine and Konshens fail to do, Gravity believes he can do but what he forgets is that Cricket Oval accommodates over 20,000 people compared to Freedom city where he has been having his concert that has a capacity of less than 8,000.
We are also not so sure if he was pulling the crowd’s legs or if he will indeed have it there but the cheers and support he has always been getting from crowds at different shows perhaps convinced him that he is on the level that needs a bigger venue now.
So far, only two Ugandan artistes we can think of have had full house concerts at cricket Oval are Bobi Wine with ‘Akalimu’ which was free by the way and Jose Chameleone with ‘Tubonge’ in 2014. We are keeping our fingers crossed and keep you update for any new developements.
