Joseph Masembe was invited to Mbarara by the management of the famous Igongo Cultural Centre and Hotel. Masembe and Igongo management discussed the possibilities of holding an edition of the “Superstar Green Festival’ in Mbarara every December and after touring the luxurious resort, Masembe left in agreement.
The second leg of the bi-annual Green Festival will be on December 14 at the Kololo Airstrip in Kampala and later head to Igongo Cultural Centre in Mbarara on December 26 (Boxing Day) for the debut in western Uganda.
