Residents of Munyonyo and surrounding villages jammed Kabaka’s Beach at Munyonyo for the Nisi concert on Sunday.
 
This was crowning the Ni Sisi 2014 concert tour following four others organised in regions of Masaka, Mbarara, Mbale, and Lira. 
 
The ‘free to the public’ concert organised by Twaweza,  had artistes like Michael Ross, Vampino Gravity Omutujju, Coco Finger, Rockie Giants, Big Eye, , Santana, Gift of Kaddo, Irene Ntale, among others display their skills on stage.  
 
Twaweza intended to mobilize communities to ‘talk less, act more’ and asked the artistes to relay messages to the audience urging them to solve their own issues other than waiting for government or outsiders to help them.
