Rock Music Slowly Rising As Touch FM Launches Rock Night

This was really fun...

Rock music in Uganda has over the years had a limited audience with everyone running to the highly dominant dancehall genre. Well, this has changed a lot and now we can see the rock music audience growing tremendously. Last Thursday saw Touch FM, Uganda’s more music variety radio station launching the maiden night of Rock Night at Cayenne Lounge. This is a clear revelation of how instrumental this radio station has been in promotion and growth of  rock music in Uganda.
