There is a way good artistes return like they never left through their craft.
Many Ugandan artistes have gone to the diaspora in search of greener pastures but their music still relates to the people and among these is George Mulindwa, a reggae artiste who played in cover bands, especially during the Steve Jean, Tshaka Mayanja and Titan Takuba generations. Mulindwa has released a number of songs, including Sofie which has become a sort of an anthem in the diaspora. With the success of song, he has also decided to organise the first reggae show dubbed ‘Reggae lovers rock style show in the diaspora by a Ugandan.’
This show, taking place tomorrow at 529 Pleasant at Watertown will have a foreign band consisting mainly Jamaicans backing Mulindwa, something that Ugandans in the diaspora have never seen before. The five hour show will also have the Hills and Vines Band performing as while Latifah Senyondwa and Katongole Omutongole will be the emcees.
“Many Ugandans love reggae but never get a chance to listen to it from their own so this is going to their opportunity,” said Mulindwa who owns two studios and works with different artistes globally.
