It looks like UK based Ugandan promoters are turning London into A Kampala of sorts regarding social events.
Previously, Ugandan musicians have been the ones frequenting shows in the UK but the trend is slowly changing.
Lately, UK based Ugandan promoters are following the local social scene in search of raw comic talents to market. And thanks to increased social media penetration in Uganda, the artistes are easing promoters’ work by uploading their works on the international platform.
As things stand now, comedians are attracting promoters for gigs overseas, with the first batch of comedians headed by Amooti Omubalanguzi, Afande Kerekere, MC Kapale and Mzee Bagala Emanga set to fly to the UK for gigs next month.
Sources reveal that the promoters have resorted to comedians after realizing that musicians had become monotonous to the revelers at Ugandan music shows in London.
Snoops revealed to us that the lucky comedians will showcase their expensive jokes live on stage in a red carpet event at the newly refurbished White House along Barking Road in London on Saturday August 22.
