Although Uganda had not yet registered any Covid-19 case, on the 18th of March 2020, public gatherings, schools, churches, mosques, bars and social events were suspended by the president as one of the ways of controlling the spread of this deadly disease.
The suspension came 11 days after singer Cindy Sanyu had finished holding her sold out Boom Party Concert whose attendees filled Lugogo Cricket Oval on Saturday the 7th of March 2020. As a matter of fact, she became the first Ugandan female singer whose concert filled that venue to capacity
Having managed to get a big attendance means that Cindy also got big money which she has been and is still spending on since that time.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the singer was so thankful for what she called “a huge concert” and also wondered what would have happened to her, if she had not held this successful concert or if it had flopped.
“Sometimes I wonder if I had not done a huge concert before the lockdown, what would have happened? Or worse still if I had done the concert and it flopped, what would I have done? You guys realize it’s been almost two years since artistes worked in Uganda, I just wonder. May be you guys would be doing a car wash for me now, God is good” Cindy said in a video she posted on her official Instagram account
Meanwhile, as D-day for her concert was getting closer, there were doubts about whether it would attract a big crowd because of the low hype the singer and her team gave it.
It however took everybody by surprise to see thousands of people filling up the venue even before she stepped on stage
She took her fans on a thrilling live music journey, performing her old and new songs that her fans have loved through the many years of her music career
