What other way would you better spend your Easter holidays than enjoy a fresh Tusker Malt Lager while dancing to good live reggae music?
That is just what the 12th edition of Blankets and Wine Kampala provided on Sunday March 27, 2016 at the Uganda Museum grounds.
The artiste line up was a blend of tingling musical genres; South Africa’s Uhuru unleashed the best of house music, Maddox on the other hand provided the ultimate lovers’ rock and reggae.
Sitenda, a former contestant in the Tusker Project Fame music competition and Sandra Suubi, winner of the Airtel Trace Music Star Search competition gave the audience a subtle but energetic vibe as the two ladies made their debuts at Blankets and Wine Kampala.
Sponsored by Tusker Malt Lager, Blankets and Wine Kampala has become the most sought after event on Uganda’s social calendar.
Speaking prior to the event, Alex Tusingwire, the Tusker Malt Lager Brand Manager said that they will continuously seek to raise the bar in terms of experience and artiste line up.
“Our aim as Tusker Malt Lager is to give consumers the freshest and most captivating experiences. 12 events down the road, the Blankets and Wine Kampala experience is only getting bigger. We shall always ensure that our consumers only get the best,” he noted.
Arguably Uganda’s true reggae ambassador, David Amon Maddox Ssemanda Ssematimba literally brought down the building.
His classical musical style that talks about love, unity, social justice, peace and everyday life added spice to an already exciting evening.
Every song he performed was well received by the frenzied crowd who ecstatically sang along. He responded by ‘hitting’ them with mega sounds that have won him acclaim world over.
Hits such as Wowota, Omuyimbi, Omukwano, Namagembe, Munakyalo, among others kept the audience on its feet.
He did a great job; setting the mood right for a musical explosion with South Africa’s Uhuru.
The kwaito/house music group famed for its Y-Tjukutja song left fans clamoring for more after putting up a sterling performance.
The dynamic group is a compilation of young producers with a keen musical sensibility and an almost otherworldly ability to harness music and create sure-fire hits.
