Let us forget about Spice Diana’s disastrous NTV Interview for a while and focus on her maiden concert that she held last Friday at Front Page Hotel in Namasuba on Entebbe Road.
The concert was meant to happen a week ago but was pushed to last Friday when Uganda lost one of the greatest singers of this generation Mowzey Radio. To show respect to the deceased who was also a close friend to Spice Diana, she moved her concert from February 2 to 9.
At her concert, the venue which was not big enough (the hotel’s parking lot) was filled up by 8:30pm with little known singers working the crowd although the mood stayed low.
By 9:30pm, the show had gotten some life after singers Sewa Sewa, Victor Kamenyo and Haruna Mubiru among other artistes came on stage to perform.
At 10:30 pm skimpily dressed buff looking men came onto the stage carrying a big box. The revelers, in anticipation for a big spectacle, pulled out the phones and begun recording the moment. To their surprise when the box was opened Spice Diana got out.
However, what stole the show was what she was wearing. The Anti Kale singer was clad in a white gown with wings that kept on swinging as she was in the air but held down by the same muscle men that brought her to the stage. The outfit made by Ronnie Guns was questionable and has so far received a lot of bashing on social media.
She kicked of her performance with Nze Akwagala, a not so popular song so the crowd kept calm until she followed it up with her hit song Onsanula. Spice Diana had clearly bitten more than she could chew when she decided to perform live since she is not good at live performances. The poor sound also did not help matters.
Despite the challenges, she continued with songs like Tekinanta, Akagali and Sitoma among others. She left the stage for artistes like Eddy Kenzo, Sitya Loss Dancers, Capital Music and Wembley among others.
Spice Diana returned after the break and continued her performance with some of her new songs. It was after a few songs that she premiered her video with Radio (RIP) and Weasel titled Kyuma. She later performed songs like Akabimbi, Akagaali, Kyuma and Koona before she closed the show with the title song Anti Kale.
Being outside Kampala, there were no restrictions on time as the event went on past midnight and ended a few minutes to 2 am.
