Of Fik’s flopped concert and Mourinho’s firing

Ian Nkera Ford

I give up for Ugandans! So you guys went and foxed the ‘Fresh Bwoy’ Fik Fameica just like that, as if he did not entertain you enough this year. Kid has been all over the place with songs such as Mafia, Property,Tonsukuma, but somehow you people were too busy for him haha. Critics blamed the concert’s poor turn up on the fact that his biggest number of fans (high schoolers and campusers) had already broken off for holidays and they had a curfew of 6pm.

Others felt that he punched way above his weight by holding a one-man concert at Kyadondo, a tricky venue for many artistes in the past. Apparently he believed the hype too much. And why wouldn’t he? Ugandans will give any squirrel attention, so an artiste with a hit song is no exception. Chaps will have been gassing the kid up for months so he bought into it.

Take it or leave it, the grown folks love Fik’s music just as much as the Buzz Teeniez crowd, so why lie? Just check people’s phones or WhatsApp statuses. Anyway,I believe December is the dream month for any entertainer and if you flop, something is mad wrong. But well, things happen.

As usual, the haters were back in full force to diss the kid for his poor showing. No surprise there. Ugandans take the crown in pulling down their own but what I simply do not get is how all these grown folks could be mocking a 22-year-old musician who dreamt big and took a risk.

The shade on social media was all unnecessary. It is these small things that always frighten kids from the big occasion. All kinds of savages on social media that want a laugh off someone’s pain. Well young people, do not be scared to dream. Many of these haters are just bored and hungry. Fik Fameica and his team can take it as a lesson and learn from it, I hope.

Jose Mourinho

But you have got to respect and feel for artistes and event organisers who plan these concerts. Overselling your expectations then you are met by empty chairs on D-day could make anyone suicidal. I would probably cry like a child or rather harass pedestrians to get in or else……..

As some cry about flopped concerts, Man U fans will be wiping theirs after their manager Jose Mourinho was sacked. It has been a sad past couple of months for Man U fans as we mourned loss after a loss. It had become a chore supporting Man U, more like washing the last dishes in the sink at midnight. No gas.Watching my fan charge has probably been more fun than catching a United game but with Mourinho’s sacking, we can all look forward to the weekend. ’Nontso’??
