The King Kong in Fik Fameica shows face

Fik Fameica on stage during his performance. He thanked his fans for turning up in droves and shaming naysayers.

American singers TI and Chris Brown have a song titled Get Back Up. In this song, they emphasise not giving up no matter the consequences. One of Fik Fameica’s first concert at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds about six years ago was not well attended but he learnt a few things from that experience.

Not giving up, the artiste last year had another concert after a while at Africana People’s Space but unlike the Kyadondo one, it was a success. But he wanted more. And his hunger pushed him to punch above his weight, targeting Lugogo Cricket Oval, which is one of the biggest venues for concerts.

In Uganda, if you fill cricket oval, you belong to a certain class of artistes. Fik Fameica did not fill the oval but his Fik Fameica Live in the city concert last Friday was a success and will not be one to easily forget.

You could say a number of things played in his favour. The Shs20,000 and Shs50,000 entrance charges were affordable. His team had embarked on a campaign ahead of the show to the extent that there was still a drive around the venue on D-day until 10pm. Then that this was the last big show before the new term begins and then of course rumours that it might be the last event at the venue before it is closed for renovation.   Gates were opened up by 3pm but only a few people were seen entering. The queues grew at 8pm but the VIP section stayed like this the entire night. Some people were not happy with the experience they received in the VIP, especially a lack of seats that were offered on first come-first serve basis. Those who came late were being charged Shs5,000 for a chair. In the ordinary section the numbers were visible while in the VVIP, most tables were filled up.
