Kampala: Fans of the legendary AwiloLongomba were taken to Soukous heaven as they reunited with the musical genius of the Congolese artiste last night at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
Awilo took revelers down memory lane with some of his all–time bangers like ‘Coupe Bibamba’ and ‘Karoline’, allowing the hundreds who had thronged the venue to reminisce about the good old days as some unleashed dance strokes they had not had to employ since the late 90s.
Awilo who started his music career back in1995 is no stranger to Uganda. The star had last come to the Pearl 20 years ago and grew to love the country so much thathe even infused some Luganda in one of his biggesthits. On Friday evening at the Serena, it was the happy reunion all had hoped for.
The star who was performing with his whole entire Paris band also brought out some of guest acts like BM that he has just collaborated with on te hit song “Rosalina” that has since gone viral and become a house hold song all over the world.
“I am sure we can all attest that the show has beenamazing. We hoped to give everyone an unforgettable experience which is what the Singleton is all about and we delievered,” said Annette Nakiyaga, Head ofLuxury Portfolio at UBL.
Revelers stayed on their feet throughout the two and a half hour long show as the Congolese maestro delivered an electric performance. The star shared his stage with a few Ugandan stars including Eddy Kenzo, Dr. Jose Chameleon and Levixone.
The show which was organised by Cents Events and sponsored by Singleton ended at midnight yet even at this time, most of those in attendance still wanted more.
