Events Industry gurus in Uganda Unleashed

I have handled events security in Uganda for the last nine years and can speak with a lot of authority and confidence that the following are the right guys to deal with for the success of any top event in the country.

1. Event Promoters
I have dealt with all top promoters in Uganda and can confidently confirm that only Balaam Barugahara, Aly Alibhai, Buzz events and Joseph Masembe have what it takes to have a competent working team on board and organise a top international event.

2. Stage and Sound:
Only Silk events, Events Warehouse, Vibes production and Dr. Mich’s company have the capacity to handle an international event. Fenon events failed the test when they messed up the Club Mega Fest at Namboole stadium and the Busy signal concert at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Even Shaggy openly complained about the poor stage sound and lights provided by Fenon.

3. MCs:
For international events, Patrick Idringi Salvado, Andrew Kabuura, Val Oketcho, Geatano Kaggwa and MC Kats would make you proud.


4. DJs
Apeman, DJ Roja, DJ Stuart and Nimrod are highly recommended.

5. Ticketing and access control.
Balaam beats them all. Eliz Tushabe of SMS 1 and Joseph Masembe of Mase consultants would be other options.

6. Events Security:
I wouldn’t write much, as you all know who runs the industry. David Katana of the Uganda Peace Cops has also done a lot and well.

7. Radio and TV.
Galaxy FM, KFM, Capital FM, Sanyu FM, NBS TV, Bukedde TV and NTV Uganda.

8. Websites:
Xclusive UG, Bigeye, Investigator, The Kampala Sun and Showbiz Uganda.

9. Stage managers:
Jonathan, the director of Laftaz comedy Louge, Sams Kaggwa, Emma Carlos Mulundo, Jenkins Mukasa and ‘the big machine’ Chonsor Kateregga would make sure the program runs on time.

This is my opinion and you are entitled to yours.
