Away from the stress of over taxation that has consumed Ugandans for almost all week, Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi performed along South African legend Yvonne Chaka Chaka at Serena hotel on Friday.
The charity concert organised by Shule Foundation was aimed at raising funds to build a school for former street kids.
Shule Foundation, a non-profit organization has a mission to expand the reach and availability of quality education to children in rural parts of Africa, and it was their first charity concert aimed at raising funds to construct a school for former street children under their care.
Hosted by comic Patrick Salvado, the night’s performances were started by an Acapella boy-group Jehovah Shalom with strong vocal percussion and beat boxing techniques.
Bobi Wine did “Abalungi Balumya” and “Uganda”, a song that referenced some political statements, reminding Chaka Chaka “This is how we do it in Uganda”.
The “Princess Of Africa”, clad in a billowing black and white dress, was ushered on stage by South African High Commissioner to Uganda, H.E Professor Lekoa Solly Mollo.
She kicked off with a song paying tribute to iconic statesman Nelson Mandela, then followed it up with Kana Uchema.
This was followed by songs like “Burning Up” and “From Me To You”, while partying with bigwigs like entrepreneur Gordon Wavamuno and politician Mike Mukula.
