A number of music lovers have taken to social media platform, Twitter to express their disappointment following what many termed as a “regular show” from Siri Regular hit maker, Spice Diana.
The concert, which was held last Friday, January 13 at Lugogo Cricket Oval has left some fans complaining over the poor sound system and sitting arrangement despite winning people’s hearts due to the futuristic big budget stage.
Socialite Judith Heard over the weekend shared a short video slamming the sitting arrangement at the Siri Regular concert. She said VIP revellers were unable to see Spice sing on stage, given that they were not allowed to stand up for better view.
According to musician Nince Henry who also doubles as the writer and collaborator for Spice’s Body, security had cleared the event to run until 1am but police and military raided the show at 11:45, resulting to tension in back stage. The singer further explained that the sound was abruptly switched off, five minutes after getting clearance to perform one more song.
Following the Friday night chaos, a number of fans have shared their disappointments online, with some blaming Spice, real name Diana Hajara Namukwaya, for performing late.
“She had the whole day to put to use but she instead decided to start singing past 9pm. She was a bad time manager herself and whoever managed that event. They took their fans for granted,” a one Victarinug tweeted.
“She knew she had mob songs to perform and started late???? Not only that, wasted a lot of time changing attires!!!! After all tebyanyumye, next time better,” Twitter user @atetracie said.
Meanwhile, some social media users have advised musicians to keep concerts about music. KFM understands that Spice Diana invited Bobi Wine’s wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi on stage to talk to the revellers. Most of Barbie’s time was consumed by Bobi’s fans who untiringly chanted Bobi Wine’s name before allowing her to say a word.
“Ugandan artists learn to have shows where there is only those that you rehearsed with or that featured on you songs, there were a lot of talking and MC show offs that took a lot of time BT kasita kyawedde,” Twitter user @njustine500 shared.
Some fans have revealed that they could barely hear the performers, suggesting adjustments for microphones.
