The UG Connect Concert has returned with a change of strategy this time round. With events returning next month going by the president’s words, this edition is dubbed the UG Hope Concert and it’s mainly focusing on generating optimism for anticipated better days ahead.

The first televised show happened Saturday afternoon in a special edition to celebrate last weekend’s inaugural Janzi Awards winners.

The concert had performances from Pia pounds, Levixone, Vinka, Zex Bilanjilanji, Liam Voice, Kenneth Mugabi, Feffe Bussi, Pallaso, Willy Mukabya and Toniks among others while young entertainers including deejays, emcees and upcoming singers also be exhibited their craft as well.

According to the organizers, the UG Connect Concert gives artistes a chance to perform for their fans, albeit virtually after close to two years without  performing after their industry was closed in government efforts aimed at combating Covid-19.

The show also aims at spreading hope to Ugandans through music, dance and drama.

Organizers further assert that the concert is an ideal platform entertainers can use to propel their careers.

“As leaders in this sector, we need to look for new strategic ideas that will propel the activities of the creative sector. UG Connect Concert is one of those ideas,” said UNCC Chairman, Sam Okello.

Another UNCC personnel, Isaac Rucci, also highlighted that the concert’s plan for the concept is all-inclusive.

“Nobody is going to be left behind with this. Expect high energy, world class entertainment,” he observed.

Saturday performances are being conducted in two sessions with the first that started  4pm-7pm and the last will run from 10pm till late.
