Those who know singer Lily Kadima surely understand that she is a performer who is no stranger to dance that even her audience irresistibly gets on their feet when she takes to stage.
She made a surprise performance at the annual media dinner at Hotel Africana last Friday, where journalists from several media houses across the country gathered to celebrate their milestones for the year 2019.
Dubbed “Mukulike embooko” (thanks for bracing the canes), the dinner is a platform for journalists to celebrate the achievements in the outgoing year, take lessons from it but also reflect on the forthcoming year.
Clad in African print outfits, the theme of the day, members of the fourth estate started strolling into Kibs hall around 6:00 pm, making a stopover at the red carpet and photo booth before taking their seats.
They were ushered into the party mood by NTV’s Andrew Kyamgero and NBS’ Mildred Tuhaise who were the MCs of the day, introducing Afro-Soul singer Brian Busuulwa who sampled out a few songs off his debut album dubbed Naaka.
Later, Guitarist Aloysius Migadde fused the mood with his guitar as he played several songs of his upcoming album as journalists sang along.
Then came Kadima who fired up the mood with her signature tune Akuloga and a rendition of Late Carol Nakimera’s Omusujja and later Ighe Olinaki, sending journalists into a Paka chini.
The day was wrapped up with top Afro-Soul star Kenneth Mugabi who took to stage with fully danceable vibes that included Ebinyuma off his new album, Jjanzi and Naaki off his old album to call it a day.
From the Band, musical performances, the red-carpet glamour, the food and yes! That beer, the party was fun.
