His second album, Isphithiphithi (2019), marked a shift towards Afro-pop and R&B, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry of South Africa.

The Ugandan actors will include Eddy Kenzo as a supporting act as well as Rachael Magoola, a founding member of the legendary Afrigo Band. This will be her debut performance at Blankets and Wine, making it one of the festival’s most anticipated acts.

A Pass and well as emerging talents, including Ebrahim Soul’o, Julius Ssese, and Sandrah K Busoga Princess, promising a diverse and vibrant musical experience.

Renowned for its meticulously curated live stage, the festival pledges to maintain its stellar reputation while elevating the ambience even further with the addition of a dynamic DJ-Producer stage dubbed Onja Onja Stage, which sets the scene for an all-day long well-curated food, crafts and markers market.
