Gulu turned out to be yet another successful edition of Neon Rave. The outgoing folks in the northern part of Uganda did not disappoint as they filled up the neon lit Acholi Inn gardens on Saturday evening. On arrival, many seemed surprised that for 10k, they would receive a bucket of Tusker Lite beers and even go ahead to enjoy performances from leading entertainers.

But they clearly didn’t have an idea about what awaited them inside the gardens where many seemed spoilt for choice over which activity to engage in. Many rushed to have their faces and bodies painted with bright colors, while the movie freaks, who were equipped with neon-lit headsets, sat on mats and watched movie after another. Others chose to get tattooed from the tattoo parlor.

For the groovy ones, Dj Crim was simply the perfect companion; the disc spinner kept revelers on their feet as they turned the gardens into a dance floor. Then came the performances; the Party Pipo dancers opened by engaging the crowd with thrilling and energetic dance moves.

Long lost singer- Coco Finger was the surprise of the night; he connected with the audience quite well as he often switched to the local dialect. The crowd perfectly matched up Coco’s energetic dance moves and even sang louder when he did the Luo version of his ‘Mikono Wagulu’ hit. Dance hall star Beenie Gunter closed the performances with an equally energetic performance of his club bangers including ‘Pon Mi’, ‘Killa Man’, ‘Olina Work’, ‘Sekkle Down’ and Giddem’.
