It was parte after parte as Wizkid shut down Kololo Airstrip

There is a reason why Wizkid is one of the biggest artistes in Africa right now. Two months back, he filled the 02 Arena in London during his Starboy Fest.

With the information that Kasana events was bringing him back to Uganda in a concert dubbed Dirty December despite the fact that he had already performed here two years ago, there was the certainty that the show would be a success. Indeed it was going by the numbers who braved the cold evening at Kololo Airstrip to watch him perform.

Wizkid came to Uganda on Thursday morning (close to 5 am) and had a press conference at 3 pm with the show happening that same evening. With all the jetlag and not feeling too well health-wise, he managed to perform for one hour, taking to stage at 11.30 pm and leaving at 12.30 am.

“I’m not feeling well but I had to make my Ugandan fans happy. I also had to do this for my late brother and friend Radio because he meant so much to me,” he said midway his performance. He started off with ‘Sweet Love’, following it with songs like ‘Show you the money’, ‘Daddy Yo’, Caro and ‘Ojuelegba’ but it was his latest hit ‘Joro’ that did the magic. Noticing that the crowd embraced it more, he did it twice.

The 29-year-old further called onto Big Trill, with whom they did ‘Don’t cry’, their single and dedicated it to Radio. In a bid to recognize Ugandan talent, Wizkid even shared the stage with Big Trill, terming his ‘Parte after parte’ as the biggest song in Africa right now.
