If you are to compare the number of Nigerian artistes who have performed in Uganda to that of Ugandan artistes who have been to the West African country, you will lose count. And it looks like the Covid-19 lockdown is not about to change the trend.
On Saturday, Nigerian singer Skales of the “Fire Waist” fame performed in Uganda only that this time it was during the launch of a new Smirnoff digital campaign dubbed “We are the party”.
The ultimate party took over the lockdown popular NTV Dance Party with Skales performing alongside Uganda’s ZuliTums of the “Tabu”fame.
It was a fiery performance, with Skales performing some of his tracks such as “Temper”, “Shake body”, “Fire Waist” and of course his club banger “Booty Language”. The two also performed their collaboration song twice before leaving the stage for the Ugandan producer-cum-singer, who did his two known tracks, “Taabu” and “Easy”.
This was the third time the Nigerian star was singing in Uganda and his performance kick-started a campaign that will see viewers participate in a three-part series of challenges throughout the festive season and win prizes with the Smirnoff starter pack being the ultimate prize; a fully loaded gift pack that comes with a crate of Smirnoff among other prices.
The campaign that started with the “dress up to go nowhere challenge” saw the NTV set transformed and draped in Halloween style costumes designed to suit the American holiday.
The challenge saw viewers given a chance to dress up in their favourite night out attire, take photos while enjoying themselves and relaxing at home and share across all social media platforms with the hashtags #DressedToGoNowhere and #WeAreTheParty to stand a chance to win themselves prizes. The picture with the most likes, shares and comments in the next two weeks will win.
The campaign comes at a time when hangout spots are still closed due to the Covid-19 restrictions hence participants will get the opportunity to enjoy themselves safely and in the comfort of their homes. Several other challenges are lined up until the end of the year.
