In a Sqoop interview with Singer David Lutalo on Friday, he was asked why he was putting his show at Cricket Oval moreover in January where many people are crying of brokenness. Lutalo’s answer was simple, “My fans have always been loyal to me and whenever I put up a concert, they come in big numbers and I hope they will do the same” Lutalo said.
He was right about this statement if the crowd that came for his Woloolo concert last evening is anything to go by. Lutalo filled Cricket Oval with a massive turn up who came to support his concert.
By 8:30pm, the grounds had a handful of people which prompted the fans to say it is a flop but a few minutes past 9pm, people started pouring into the enormous Cricket Oval. Before we knew it, the grounds were filled up from the ordinary section to the VIP sections.
Performances were still going on and among the people that came to support David Lutalo were Bebe Cool, Carol Nantongo, Easy Bash, Irene Kisakye, Abdul Muasi, Evelyn Lagu, Papa Cidy and Nince Henry among others.
The man of the night David Lutalo, dressed in a white blazer and black pants, stepped on stage a few minutes past 10pm. He kicked off his performance with songs like Onsanula, Ayi Mukama, Akantu, Far Away and Mapenzi.
At 11:30pm, he left the stage for singer Gravity Omutujju who changed the night’s mood by getting everyone on their toes. Soon revelers were singing along to songs like Money, Winner and Embuzi Zatukude.
Before Gravity performed his last song, he was joined by Eddy Kenzo who performed songs like Jubilation, Soraye and Nze Nsinga before he was joined by Pastor Wilson Bugembe.
