“You see these people only perform from big towns yet people here are great supporters, they want to see them, to meet them and feel the songs. If you looked at the crowd, they were singing with them. This is now going to be the centre of the world, we want everyone to feel i. we wanted to have it on Easter but we were told Eid El Fitir is close, we had to combine it and make it a two holiday function concert.” Isingoma said.
