Every year on December 26, Comedian Sundiata also known as Mayor of Kirabu holds a show dubbed Mayor of Kirabu and Friends. The show that happens in Arua city also brings together different acts from different parts of Uganda but this year’s edition was special.
Unlike the other editions, the 2022 edition that took place at Capital One Parking in Arua town had some people fail to get in because the tickets had been sold out. By 7 pm, the lines of revelers getting into the venue for the show were already long and by 9 pm, there were no more entries as organized said there were no more tickets and the huge venue was already packed to the brim.
The show kicked off at around 9:30 pm with Sundiata, the organizer of the show. He made a few jokes as he introduced the show and the first act of the night. Jacques was the first comedian to head on the stage before he left the stage for Gulu’s top comedian Mc Kash Owakabi.
Sundiata being the host of the night kept on coming back on stage to crack a few jokes before bringing on other comedians. Emma Napoleone who recently had a good show back home in Soroti also performed at the Mayor of Kirabu and Friends show. Dr Hilary Okello came through as usual, straight to the point as he delivers jokes that relate to the crowd.
Joshua Okello Okello, a comedian who organizes the comedy black Friday also took to the stage during the evening of the sold-out show. The people of Arua understand him well, he needed no introduction since he has performed there many times.
The biggest highlight of the night was Comedian Patrick Salvado Idringi. It was like a homecoming show for Salvador since the comedian takes long to perform for the people of Arua and yet that is where he comes from. Salvado being a person from West Nile is the reason he refers to himself as Man from Ombokolo, Ombokolo is said to be a place in Arua city.
