On Thursday night, Mbarara city was left in awe as Almost Famous Entertainmen introduced the latest happening music style (silent music) to Mbarara town.
The event that was hosted at Ice Lounge in the heart of Mbarara saw attendance from not only university slay queens but also corporate ladies as revelers opened up to the amazing music played in the night.
During the event, music was part of the night as each reveler paid Shs. 10k for a silent disco entitled to listen to western, Ugandan and contemporary music from the 12 DJs who were present in the club.
The trend of silent discos is slowly sinking its roots deeper on the Uganda entertainment scene and party animals have gotten used to this experience where you get to listen to the music you want through headphones.
To this note, Almost Famous DJs have opted to take this silent party across the nation. They have been hosted in Arua, Jinja, and Mbarara. Now they plan a University campus tour, starting with Mbarara.
Simon Wagga, the manager Almost Famous DJs told ChimpLyf he is into entertainment and concept development and signed an MOU with Club beer but did not disclose the agreement details.
The director, Jagen Julius aka Mad Mudokro confirmed that the event is sponsored by Club beer and it is going to be happening in a few universities like Gulu, UCU, Nkozi, MUST and Nkumba around the country.
“This is to introduce silent disco to the young university groups in conjunction with club music” Jagen said
He added that this music will be sold all over the country to catch up with the new trend of revelers.
“We are doing this to package music in travel all over the country; we give you an opportunity to listen to 4 DJs at the same time giving an opportunity to be in one place at the same time listening to 4 different midnights” Jagen said
He added that silent disco gives revelers a chance to listen to music from one place.
Jagen thought that many Ugandans are fans of clubs and will get their dancing shoes on floor every day of the week to get jiggy all night long.
He therefore looked on to adopt the new phenomenon of music style in happening places.
“We love to party in Uganda so we need to embrace new phenomenon” Jagen said
Speaking to some of the revelers present, they said that this silent disco is the way to go for clubs as everyone is at liberty to listen to any kind of music they want.
Some aged people argued that they were tired of loud music and this could provide a fine moment of having fans in happening places.
