Chris Martin coming with Cecile in September

Christ-largeUgandan music lovers were filled with excitement when they heard that Jamaican stars Mavado and Chris Martin were due for a gig in Kampala close to two years ago. However, the show that was slated for December 29, 2012 and was sponsored by Bell Lager didn’t materialise after Mavado refused to show up. The dancehall star allegedly asked to postpone because he had gotten a bigger offer for the same date. The promoter of the show, Nigerian national Chinedu Ikora, tried to convince the singer to come and another date was set in April 2013, but Mavado still didn’t make it.

Since Mavado was the headliner of the show, Chris Martin was allegedly waiting for a call to board the next plane to Uganda. And that call finally came from another promoter, by the name of David Kibuuka of One Nation Entertainment Promotions.
Kibuuka who is working closely with promoter Balaam Baruhagare, told us that he has already signed a contract with Chris Martin and all is set for a concert on September 5. And since most venues around town are in KCCA’s bad books, Kibuuka told us that the show will be held at Freedom City Mall, along Entebbe Road.
“I have a performance agreement signed by Chris Martin. I also have a voice assurance. He cost me about $60,000 (about Shs 150m), including air tickets. He said he is coming with Cecile,” Kibuuka told us. Revellers will have to part with 20k to the ordinary section and 50k for VIP seats.
