This development comes after sections of the public expressed their inability to access the promotion as they do not consume alcoholic beverages.
Addressing the press at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel, Mr. Nyimpini Mabunda, the Managing Director at Uganda Breweries Limited explained that Uganda Breweries has listened to the public because they believe in an all-inclusive approach.
“The limited tickets are being put up for sale to cater to those who feel that they have been left out by the under the crown promotion. These tickets do not in any way interfere with the ongoing promotional mechanic, rather they only offer an option to persons who feel they were disenfranchised due to the fact that they do not consume alcoholic beverages,” -- he said.
Nyimpini also clarified that whilst 5,000 tickets are now available for sale, consumers should continue participating in the Bell Pop’n Jam promotion by sending codes to 8464 as they still stand a chance to win tickets.
Robert Kabushenga, the Vision Group CEO, a partner of the Ne-Yo concert in Kampala further reaffirmed that the need to sell tickets arose as a result of views expressed by XFM and Urban TV audiences as well.
“As partners, we sat down and agreed to put up a few tickets on sale to cater for those who want either VIP treatment, or as already mentioned do not consume alcoholic beverages but would love to be part of this once in a lifetime experience.” he remarked.
As a result Vision Group’s XFM in conjunction with Bell Lager will set up a VIP experience at the show. Tickets will be availed at Vision Group’s head office in Kampala, The House of Walker at Sheraton Kampala, Nakumatt Oasis, and Capital Shoppers. More purchase points will be communicated at a later date.
