Do you remember the name, Red Banton, Mesach Semakula, Bella, King Michael, Gift of Kaddo, and Henry Tigan?
20 years ago, these musicians were on top of their game. And on Friday night, they all showed up in one room to entertain thousands of fans who turned up for the 6th edition of the annual Slick Stuart and Roja Mixtape party sponsored by Uganda Waragi.
Red Banton, born Tony Lubega, rose to fame two decades ago with a hit song 'Noonya Money'. His adoring fans couldn't get enough of him as they sang along to the song that still resonates with Ugandans to date.
Semakula, Bella, King Michael, Kaddo, and Tigan took fans on a memorable lane with songs like Sigwe Ansimila, Fassi, Muko Muko, Traffic Man Officer and Lwakyi Oninza respectively.
BET award winner, Eddy Kenzo, dished out almost Shs1,000,000 to the fans during his perfroamnace that started at around 11.39 pm with Sitya Loss, Inabana, Super Power, Bibaawo as DeeJay Mercy Pro worked the decks.
Mercy Pro also helped hype the remarkable performances of Pallaso, Big Trill (Parte after Parte, Bad Gyal), Fik Fameika (Mafia, Ndi Wanjawulo) and crowd favourite Fefe Busi – who freestyled before curtains fell at midnight to introduce a new set for Stuart and Roja.
The dynamic duo suffered a slight technical glitch, and while it was being rectified, the audience was left agitated.
The show later kicked off with Keri Hilson’s Knock You Down, before embarking on some of their productions such as Sunday and Wello Wello featuring Allan Tonix and King Saha.
Bebe Cool, Spice Diana, Winnie Nwagi all graced the stage with a song or two each.
Before that, deejays Emma, Lola (local) Fem Deejay (rave), DJ Ciza, and Selector J, who proved he is still a crowd darling took revellers on a musical journey.
In between, partiers, who sipped on Uganda Waragi Cocktails and Bell Beer, enjoyed performances by Ethan, VIP Jemo, Choosen Blood, Exodus, and Levixone.
