On Wednesday, legendary Congolese lingala star Awilo Longomba returned to Uganda since 1998 ahead of his much anticipated concert on 5th April at Kampala Serena hotel.

He will hold his second concert on 7th April at the Greenlight Stadium in Onduparaka in Arua town.

To the Ugandans that danced sweaty to Awilo Longomba’s music in the mid-1990s, the legendary Congolese star promised an unforgettable show this Friday.

He expects his fans to show up in large numbers and reminisce the memories of African original lingala, zouk and kizumba dances.
