Fathers and daughters do the 'Soul Train' at the Father and Daughter Dance at the Serena

By Solomon Muleyi

Ugandans are swiftly becoming Americans at an alarming rate and different people are doing it contrarily.

While Bad black bleached her face and developed an American accent in bid to become an American, a team of other Ugandans under a similar bid embraced yet another culture and organized the Father and Daughter dance at Serena hotel last Sunday.

Revellers stormed the victoria hall at 6:00pm each parting with 80k as the entrance to the father and daughter dance.  

It started with MS Jamilah Mayanja, the brains behind the importation of the culture explaining why they held the dance “this is a chance for us to dance off that moment we missed in life”. She said.

The M.C of the night Abbey Mukiibi then opened the dance session before calling Rema to sing to the crowd. She was supposed to dance with her father but in his absence, Abbey Mukiibi stepped in and played the role of the father in the dance while she sung Kukaliba. She was emotional for a reason the crowd failed to understand as she broke down in tears while singing.

Among the highlights of the night was the auctioning of a painting which Farid Kaliisa bought at 3M and Frank Gashumba being in attendance didn’t want his presence to go unnoticed so he also bought the painting of him and his daughter, Sheila Gashumba at 3M after which they hit the dance floor and danced amid cheers from the crowd.

Irene Ntale and Michel Ouma also performed at the father mother dance whose proceedings were to help improve education and sanitation of young rural girls. Joanita Kawalya’s performance however eclipsed the other performers when she came onto stage to send everyone to the dance floor with her song Jim. The crowd danced and sang along to all her songs and even when she was the last performer, she gave the show the climax it needed at 11:00pm when the show ended.
