The Guinness Smooth sponsored show that is organised by Malembe Lifestyle is on tomorrow; Saturday, April 30, at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.
Speaking to the media during a press conference at Kampala Serena Hotel, the Guinness Black Shines Brightest Pan-African campaign influencer said he is very excited to be in the Pearl of Africa, and can’t wait to meet his fans and give them a memorable show.
“I have always been eager to perform for my Ugandan fans because I know how huge a fan base I have here; that is why this show is a very important occasion for me. I’m looking forward to being with you guys tomorrow. We are going to have fun,” Fireboy said.
The star, who arrived in the country earlier this morning, will be performing alongside some of the biggest names in the country including Sheebah, Navio, Fik Fameica, Zex Bilangilangi, among others.
The show will also feature some of the biggest disc spinners like DJ Ssese, DJ Spinny, Slick Stuart & Roja, Fem DJ and DJ Suuna Ben, a local disc spinner causing waves on the local scene, who was added to the line-up following fans’ requests.
“This is going to be a show like no other. I know this is a statement that you always hear when concerts like these are happening, but this one is different.
We have undoubtedly one of the biggest artistes on the African continent, with some of the biggest hits at the moment and we have organised an experience only Guinness can do. Fireboy, Malembe and Guinness; this collaboration is the perfect recipe for a magical show,” said Prudence Mutembei, the Premium Beers Brand Manager at Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL).
