Not even the rain could stop Roast and Rhyme enjoyments

The 19th edition of Roast and Rhyme that was held on Sunday at Jahazi Pier Munyonyo was a powerful testament to Ugandans’ commitment to enjoyments.

The moment the gates opened at noon, guests were ushered into the venue and took their spots around the large space, setting up their mats and camping chairs, ordering drinks, and grilling meat in an experience curated by Bell Lager under its Mpola Enjoyments theme.

But then, the skies opened up at 5 pm, lasting about 2 hours.

To many, this had greatly affected the event but not to those already on their way and those inside the muddy venue. It seemed like it was the best experience ever as partygoers braved the wet and muddy ground without any remorse. They danced, slid, and even took pictures and videos of themselves having a great moment. Many got dirty after numerous falls but they didn’t mind as they just enjoyed the party and performances from artistes like Steve Keys, Myko Ouma, and the band, Lydia Jazmine, Beenie Gunter, and Levixone.

Levixone on stage

Levixone took the audience to church with his ballads including ‘Nonya Omu’, ‘Esaala’, ‘Mbeera’, ‘Guno Omwaka’ with Mickie Wine, ‘Yoya’ with Ray G, ‘Turn Da Replay’ and ‘Chikibombe’ among others. He would on several occasions get on his knees in praise and remind the crowd how Jesus loves them. Typical Levixone, he couldn’t leave the stage without giving the audience a prayer to end the year.

Myko Ouma on stage

Stepping onto the stage at about 9 pm, Ouma’s band – which included the talented saxophonist Joseph Sax – began their performance with a medley of jazz ballads before transitioning to salsa and then the more popular and conventional music.

Joseph Sax doing what he does best

The entire performance was a journey and by the time it came to an end, the band had performed some of Uganda’s most iconic hits including Afrigo Band’s Jim, Jose Chameleone’s Mama Mia, and others – keeping the guests on their feet and entertained as they indulged in the evening’s enjoyments.

Lydia Jazmine and Beenie Gunter

The band also backed up Lydia Jazmine, who performed songs like ‘Hit and Run’, ‘Kapeesa’, ‘Same Way’, ‘Masuuka’, and others before inviting Beenie Gunter to the stage for a performance of their single – ‘No Letting Go’.
