The legendary Lingala star Awilo Longoma has Wednesday afternoon made his way to Uganda ahead of his Concert on Friday 5 at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
The singer jetted in Entebbe at exactly 2:30 Pm together with more of his Paris band members,who seem ready to give revelers their best performance ever.
Awilo, who became a star back in1995 when he quit drumming to take up singing, has established himself over the years as one of Africa’s finest artistes of his generation and is certainly no stranger to Uganda.
More so given that Congolese music, particularly the genre he does called Soukous (locally known as Lingala), was for a long time the staple sound of Ugandans whenever it was time to dance.
Awilo’s Friday show, organised by Cents in partnership with Singleton, is the Congolese star’s first public concert in Uganda in more than a decade.
With his popularity in the Music industry, fans will indeed have a show to remember as several top Ugandan artistes are also lined up to perform, including leading gospel act Levixone, Jackie Chandiru,Eddy Kenzo and Cindy, among others.
