“We have walked a journey with Purple Party and we believe in their vision which is celebrating everything Ugandan entertainment…After two years of lockdown and a ban on events, we are delighted to see that Purple Party has risen up again and continues to pursue its similar vision. We are happy to be on board and will sponsor all the tours to make sure we reach out to all corners of the country” said Joel Galla, the Nile Breweries’ brand manager Club and Premiums said.
On his part, Lwanga thanked Club for always supporting the Ugandan music industry and helping groom talent. He highlighted Club Pilsener’s online concerts dubbed ‘Club Beatz at Home’ which provided opportunities for artists and emcees to earn some money during the lockdown as well as reconnect with their fans.
“It’s because of the Club Beatz At Home that even other brands thought about online concerts. Club Pilsener paved the way and for that, we can’t thank you enough,” Lwanga remarked.
