Cinderella Sanyu aka Cindy The King Herself is in buoyant mood ahead of her much anticipated Boom Party concert slated for this Saturday March 7th at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
The visibly confident Cindy while speaking to media and fans yesterday confessed it was a big risk she took while deciding the venue for her biggest show in years. It all started when she couldn’t secure any of the venues she had in mind after they were all booked by other event promoters and functions.
She finally had to settle for the scary and expansive Lugogo Cricket Oval as she believed it was the only available option left for the vision she had for this particular concert.
One of the main attributes being that this will be 10 times bigger than her previous shows where she will have 10 queen dancers and 10 band members as opposed to the 3 and 5 she previously had.
“I know other artistes have always promised to deliver 100 percent while I usually promise 150% and deliver. However this time round I promise 200% and I will indeed deliver come Saturday 7th March”. The pumped up Cindy declared at the presser held at Bight of Benin.
Much of the confidence she has gained in the last few days stems from the fact that some big brands have come on board to sponsor her concert among them; Uganda Breweries under Tusker Malt while a host of partners have also joined in supporting the concert.
While confirming their massive support to Cindy Tusker Malt Brand Representative, Herbert Ndugwa, said the event will bring out the best of the Cindy experience in a historic show that will out-live the expectations of Kampala’s entertainment scene.
“Cindy is an amazing artist who has been in the industry for over 10 years, bringing her fans 100% real music always. We are humbled to be a part of her journey as we celebrate her pioneering a huge achievement this Saturday,” said Ndugwa.
The Dancehall artist will make history as the first female artist to take her concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval one of the most prestigious venues in the country which has been predominantly used by mostly international artists and few Ugandan artists over the years.
“It is about time a Ugandan female artiste came and filled up Cricket Oval, this is my vision and I promise to bring you the very best of The King Herself. You cannot afford to miss out on this night,” she beamed.
Although local artistes were at first reluctant to be part of the Boom Party, due to phobia for the venue, a host of them have now jumped on the list of performers including artists such as Kent & Flosso, Eddy Kenzo, Maro, Karole Kasita, Rabadaba, Silver X (from South Sudan), and Viper Ranking among others.
Ordinary tickets to the “Boom Party” Concert are being sold at Shs. 20,000, VIP tickets at Shs. 50,000 and a table goes for Shs 1,000,000.
