13th May was the date set aside as the concert day for the Omwana Wabandi concert which was going to take place at hotel Africana, Kampala, hosted by Radio & Weasel. The concert just like other concerts, a lot of noise was made months before the concert, mainly from haters of the dynamic duo as they listed the reasons why the concert will flop.
The concert had one big challenge, Goodlyfe had supported Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in the recently concluded elections and the opposition supporters had promised to boycott the Omwana Wabandi concert. With the opposition leading in those regions, no one was sure whether the concert will be successful or not, all of their supporters lived in horror waiting for that shaming moment. But God can’t ignore his people just like that.
The Gates were opened around 6:00PM, the entrance was 20,000 and 50,000. People started entering in slowly, one by one and by 8:00PM, the number had increased and having a bigger share of the Hotel Africana capacity.
People continued to come and filled the whole area reserved for them and had one of the most successful concerts ever organized at Hotel Africana. The attendance numbers were not in hundreds but rather thousands.
Mama Prossy Mayanja was there to bless her sons’ concert, just as a supporting mother will always be. Pallaso and Jose Chameleone were also there to support their brothers Radio and Weasel. Jose Chameleone wrote “Thanks for Love you showed to Uganda’s Dynamiq Music Force. Radio and Weasel you make me Proud to be part of your Success story.This is the Future we always talked about!” Various other musicians made their appearances plus Mcees.
The Boycott campaign which was the talk of the day even up to 2 hours after the gates were opened vanished in the air and was no more, People had showed that they can differentiate between politics and Music, someone’s political side should be respected just as yours should be respected o o.
The Omwana Wabandi Event whose main Sponsors were MTN Uganda and its co-sponsors being Pepsi Uganda, Heineken, Face TV and Power House tuned into a successful event and entertaining one, which both the sponsors who paid in the money and the fans who paid the entrance money were satisfied that their money was worth it.
