Nigerian star Skales was the star attraction at the 23rd edition of Blankets And Wine that took place on Sunday August 25th at Lugogo Cricket Oval. He never disappointed music lovers as he put up a show-stopping performance that can only be described as magical as he transported fans to Lagos, Nigeria at the packed Oval .
Fans congregated as early as midday in anticipation of Skales, who jetted into the country as early as Wednesday ahead of the Tusker Malt sponsored and much-anticipated Afro-based music festival was the headlining act and he did just what was expected from him.
Floral prints and brightly-colored Afro-inspired animal print attire dominated the fashion scene as ladies mostly dominated their male counterparts in that department as usual. They turned up in style as they sat on their blankets and picnic chairs.
However, It was clear that fans of Blankets and Wine had one agenda; to party like never before with the “Booty Language singer as they excitedly sang along and danced to many of his all-time hit songs like “I am for Real,” “Shake Body” and ‘Booty Language’ during his one hour performance including his fresh new songs like “Ego.”
And as drinks were freely flowing all over the place, the better part of the evening had Uganda’s own main acts MoRoots take over the stage with the artists’ own unique “Future Afro-soul” music and Voltage Music delivering an electrifying performance for the crowds with songs like “Byafaayo,” “Pull Up,” and “Squeeze”, their hit collaboration with songstress Fille.
“Tusker Malt is always looking to bring our consumers an all-round 100% real and unique premium experience. This August edition had an amazing line-up as always and with December coming up, we will surely close off the year bigger and in style,” said Tusker Malt’s Kelvin Gumisiriza.
The picnic style musical festival party, occurs three times a year in the months of April, August and December and remains one of the most popular events on the local social calendar and is the place to be for Ugandans who enjoy Afro-based music.
