However, it seems faded singer Rocky Giant’s humiliating assault by fellow faded musician, Mark Bugembe alias Buchaman opened doors for him.
South African author, Mokokoma Mokhonoana once wrote: “Some of the best things that have ever happened to us wouldn’t have happened to us, if it weren’t for some of the worst things that have ever happened to us.”
Mokhonoana must have been appealing to Rocky as the organizers of the annual Bayimba Festival have come out not extend just sympathy but also to pledge that the “Ngoma nene” singer will be programmed to perform at the 2021 Bayimba International Festival at Lunkulu.
“We will do our best to have Rocky Giant at the 13th Edition Bayimba International Festival – Uganda 2021”
This will be the first time for Rocky to appear on a big stage presumably since 2007 when he won the best Hip Hop award of the year organized by the long gone Pearl Of Africa Music Awards.
Rocky’s tribulations brought onto him by the presidential envoy on ghetto affairs have since then seen him get more opportunties and pledges from the entertainment fraternity.
They include free video shoots from JahLive, Song writing opportunity from Nince Henry, Audio production from Eno beats, wardrobe by Abryanns among others.
However, users of social media where the shocking video showing Buchaman humiliating Rocky went viral continue to call for justice.
