Half of the people who attended this year’s edition’s roast and rhyme last Sunday didn’t know Kabuye Semboga. In fact, many screamed after he sang ‘Fahima’ which was an indication that they knew the songs but not the artiste.

By the time he got to his second song Ébisanyi’, inviting Bruno K to sing along with him, everyone was now on their feet. He finished his performance with Ónyambaga’ and by this time, the crowd kept demanding for more. Unfortunately, his time was up.

Michael Ouma and his band that included Emma Dragu, Joseph Sax and Steve Keys came on after a short break of Dj Cream’s mixes. You would say this hyped the event. They started off on a low tone, doing original compositions and some reggae jams. But as the crowd had given up on them, they switched to popular songs like ‘Despacito’, ‘Dance’’ and other Nigerian hits. The ‘slay queens’ couldn’t help themselves but to dance bend over even on songs that didn’t require them to. Just like Kabuye Semboga, they also left the crowd yearning for more.

Maurice Kirya, the self-proclaimed king of Mwoyo (soul) came next. He came on stage after ten minutes of introduction by Mc Roger. Those in front of the stage shouted while others waited to see if he could match up with the two previous acts. He tried, singing some of his popular songs like ‘Busaabala’, ‘Never been loved’, and ‘Misuubawa’ among others but there was no much impact. It was only ‘Mulembe’gwa Kirya’ that tried to impress.

His 30 or so minute’s performance left many people wondering why he was the last to perform with many suggesting he would have been the last.

This edition had a bigger crowd with many activities like a market and the platter of meat was going for shs50,000.
