Reggae Music lovers were over the weekend camped at the Source of the Nile in Jinja for the inaugural Reggae on the Nile festival.
The two-day Jamaican party which attracted reggae music lovers was organized and sponsored by Black Bell and Uganda Waragi.
Set on the banks of River Nile at The Bourbon Bar and Grill, gates were opened early on Saturday afternoon and by dusk, a size-able crowd had gathered, dancing along to the sweet sounds of the Caribbean.
The event saw reggae lovers and Rastafarians sipping Black Bell and Uganda Waragi cocktails as they danced away to a vast selection of reggae jams on the shores of River Nile. Many were left mesmerized especially by the skills of the Uganda Waragi mixologists. Some noted that they had only seen these kinds of things happen in movies and thus found them interesting to watch.
Speaking on why they sponsored the event, Uganda Waragi Brand Manager Rhona Namanya said the spirit binds all walks of life and its therefore fitting that they celebrate with the reggae lovers.
Later in the evening Black Bell took the party to the next level with the best deep roots reggae dub vibes by different deejays including Ras Clan Entertainment’s DJ Ras Brow.
Party goers danced the night away to the best reggae music of all time, from roots to dancehall, UB 40, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Inner Circle and Bob Marley among others.
The festival was an opportunity to connect with people and soak up the reggae vibes while on the banks of river Nile.
