Nigerian musician born and raised in England Jidenna Theodore Mobisson better known as “Jidenna” spent one week in Uganda where he performed at the Abryanz Style & Fashion Awards and Blankets & Wine. During his stay here, he decided to have a mini-vacation in Murchison Falls National Park courtesy of Uganda Tourism Board and Talent Africa.
Jidenna spent three days in Murchison Falls National Park which sits on the shores of Lake Albert, in northwest Uganda. This is where the River Nile explodes through a narrow 7m metre gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes.
Jidenna participated in numerous tourist activities including a game drive, bike safari, boat ride and a hike to the top of Murchison Falls.
According to Jidenna, “The trip to Murchison Falls was magnificent. I was in awe and struck by the power, force, and finesse of the waterfall. What I love about here was being surrounded by nature, water, and greenery. I learned a lot about animals on this trip and realised they are just like people in many ways. Uganda will definitely be a country I will visit again real soon.”
His hosts said they were happy to have welcomed and hosted him, showing him different beautiful places in Uganda.
“It was a pleasure hosting Jidenna in the Pearl of Africa this last week, we got a chance to show him Murchison Falls National Park and a different side Uganda that people in the western world are not aware of. Uganda is an amazing tourist destination and its celebrities like Jidenna who can help market our country to the rest of the world,” said Aly Allibhai the C.E.O Talent Africa.
