Without a doubt, the 4th edition of Roast and Rhyme was the most attended since the event began about a year or ago.
Jahazi Pier Munyonyo flooded with stylish revelers who trickled in as early as 1PM.
The free-meat-before-3PM strategy definitely worked for the proprietors.
Powered by Bell Lager, the “storytellers” surpassed expectations both by the turn up and stage activity.
With free-flowing drinks and the attention-grabbing yellow décor, Bell Lager gave the event an astounding makeover.
First on stage was the rap poet who fused rap and poetry, a combination that gave fans an unforgettable experience.
Kenneth Mugabi, a soft-spoken singer also exhibited his unquestionable vocal maturity with songs like “ileng” “Naki” and others from his discography.
The multi-talented Janzi band later took over with covers of popular hits.
They also staged long enough to back up artists that performed later.
Naava Grey, at 7:15PM took over with “Eminitiye” a love song she sang in “Yoruba”—a Nigerian native language.
Fans got closer to the stage as the event got heated up.
Naava also performed “Ninga Omuloge” “Ndi” “Nterede” among other ear-catching ballads.
Afro-dancehall crooner Ykee Benda was the last on stage, but definitely not the least.
His performance featured songs both from his discography and other artists’ too.
With his best-selling hits like “Malaika”, “Munakampala” and “Farmer” Mr. Benda managed to get te crowd boogying.
The night climaxed with a music mix by Deejay Crim, the official Bell Lager DJ.
