What You Missed At The Life Of Bebe Cool Concert

From the day he announced the concert of his life in February this year, Uganda’s Reggae and Ragga artiste Big Size Bebe Cool did not leave all the preparations to be done by the manager. He personally was involved in making ends meet so that his concert would be the best.

All the hard work done aimed at the concert’s success was manifested last Friday night at Kampala Serena Hotel’s Victoria Hall where the highly anticipated Life Of Bebe Cool concert was held amid an overwhelming number of fans from all corners of Uganda and the mother land Africa.

With revellers strolling in the hall as early as 7 pm, the night was bound to be a splendid one and it indeed started off as one  when Allan Kendrick, (Bebe Cool’s first born) curtain raised his dad performing his ‘Omukwano Gwo’ song.

When the main act took centre stage dressed in coat, a white shirt, black pants and a pair of brown boots, the crowd couldn’t help but ulutate while others opted to applaud the singer. The ‘Kabulengane’ singer didnt waste a single second but began his 3 hours and 40 minutes performance.

In part two he came back dressed in a pair of white sneakers, black pants, a t-shirt and performed more songs like ‘Trouble’ but during this session, he kept on sharing his hard life experiences like getting shot 4 times, surviving a bomb blast, getting involved in nasty accidents but still couldn’t give up on music because God told him that he shouldn’t let Bobi Wine and Chameleone take the lead.
