Sunday afternoon at the Tanqueray All Music Safari was an exciting fun-filled music fiesta for those who attended the close-knit music concert hosted at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions on crowds, only a handful of revellers attended the live event, but the good news is, it was also aired live for the general public.
Guests who attended reveled that the three-hour non-stop performance of an epic line up headlined by funk masters, The Black Roots Unlimited and Kas Kasozi, left heads bopping to the tunes of their music geniuses.
Mseto Nation kicked off the show with Afro soul vibes as guests sipped on Tanqueray cocktails. Later on, Tonya Michelle Ahenda and Julius Sseese set the mood going with renditions of popular timeless songs including, ‘All My Life,’ ‘Dear Mama’ (redone in Luganda with Spyda Mc) and You Belong To Me’ among others.
It was all but throwback melodies trickling through the delighted audience.
The gin-themed picnic that followed the national standard operating procedures to curb the spread of COVID-19 was rightly a mix of both worlds as described by Annette Nakiyaga, The Head of International Premium Spirits at UBL as a worthwhile music event that evoked unmistakably lasting impressions for everyone.
Those who celebrated at home took to social media to share the fun times along with friends and family while at home as artists including Aloysius Migadde and Joel Kisakye serenaded the crowds into the late evening.
This year’s Tanqueray All Music Safari was held in conjunction with Rotary as has been the norm for several years and was aimed at raising funds that would go towards supporting cancer patients to access treatment as donations were collected from well-wishers and other charitable organisations, this time through mobile money platforms.
