The fifth edition of the Budo League ended on a high note with dancehall star Bebe Cool bringing the eight-month-long series to a captivating end at Legends Rugby Grounds last evening.
It was an evening to remember as the Gagamel boss gave revellers some of his best songs which left many dancing and singing along to the jams.
He came with ‘Katono’ that left ladies screaming while others went all out to shake the little God blessed them with. Bebe then jumped on to other songs including the ‘Fire‘, ‘Kaspepiki’, Nkuliyo, and Easy but it was Love your every day that excited revelers more especially after he requested to dance with a lady from the audience. Bebe later closed his performance with ‘Tiktok’, ‘Wire Wire’, and ‘Gyenvude‘.
Before his performance, Peaky Blinders received their trophy after overcoming Abacuba 1-0 in the main cup final. Peaky Blinders had defeated BIFA 9-8 on penalties in the semis finals.
They were crowned the Budo League champions amid a fireworks display and received a trophy that was air-lifted earlier on.
Speaking to the media at the event, Captain of the Peaky Blinders Jonathan Sentamu said that it was an honour to lead a side that has reached three finals in a row and has lifted the championship trophy for a second straight season. He also recognised his teams’ collective efforts, especially in the final bend of the season.
“There has been a massive effort from everyone on the team. The boys worked hard, and it paid off,” Sentamu said.
“In the regular season we faced some challenges, but the winning mentality was back during the finale, and it was a massive thing for us,” he added.
Meanwhile, in the George Semivule Cup (Second Tier Event) Dujay FC, Class of 2017 emerged 2-1 winners over team Massape, Class of 2014.
Sponsored by Guinness Uganda, the Budo League is a bi-weekly Sunday Football League and socialising/ networking event for the alumni of Kings College Budo.
The teams are formed by the class years with outfits fielding nine to ten players (if you have a lady on the team.)
