Despite the fact that the agency that was handling the ticketing of the Reggae Fest Jam concert featuring one of Jamaica’s biggest Reggae and Dancehall artistes Anthony B decided to deny many journalists a chance of covering the concert claiming that they had their invited journalists, as Chano8 we couldn’t just let that story pass.
Anthony B who arrived in Uganda on Thursday the 22nd of March promised nothing but a fired up performance and yes delivered although Kampala Capital City Authority forcefully ordered the organisers to stop the concert at few minutes to midnight which is the maximum time for all outdoor events in Kampala.
Held at the Lugogo based Legends Bar Ground on Saturday the 24th of March, the fairy attended Reggae Fest Jam kicked off as early as 7: 30 PM with revellers strolling in ready to party their Saturday in a typical Rasta and Reggae style.
After a good live Reggae music mixes by Dj Ciza which was a warm up, veteran singer Bebe Cool was the first to grace the stage performing about 8 songs which he revellers enjoyed. He was followed by Irene Ntale who performed her Reggae song ‘Love Letter’ before switching to other songs of hers
Fire Base’s Zex Bilangi Langi and Ghetto Kids were the last performers before Anthony B’s official Dj Kuz KZ took to the wheels of steel. He ignited more excitement in the fair crowd playing classic Reggae and Dancehall songs from Anthony B and other Jamaican Reggae artistes before the last local headliners Buchaman and Angellah Katatumba performed as well.
At 11 20 PM, Anthony B finally took to the stage amid lots of ululations from the crowd. He performed a few of his songs which were already working the excited crowd but due to fact it was a few minutes towards mid night, at 10 minutes to midnight KCCA officials had to call the concert to end which left revellers yearning for more shouting ‘Our money Our Money’
