In a country, and an entertainment industry where international musicians' concert flops have become so cliché people no longer hoot about them, it has become such a risky venture to bring an international artist to Uganda without, perhaps establishing and confirming ticket sales of the exact amount of people targeted.
But American based Ugandan rapper, NTO alias Newton Kiyinji who is also commonly known as Angella Katatumba's boyfriend has taken the bull by the horn by securing a deal with an international rappers association called "Members elite only" to bring Bobby Brown's nephew, YF Kennedy real names, Jerod Brown to Uganda.
The concert is set to be organized at Serena hotel at a yet to be released date and many Hip hop lovers have already taken to social media to express their overwhelming anticipation for the American Rapper.
During a press conference held at Sharing hall Nsambya recently, Newton Kiyinji intimated that Uganda will be one of the many countries the Grand Kisses singer will perform as he has embarked on a month long African tour.
"We are also working around getting Bobby Brown on the tour as their cousin, Bobby Christina also a celebrated vocalist and a good number of the Member's Only Elite crew will be flying in to accompany YF kennedy on his African tour" said NTO during the press conference.
When asked whether the artists coming would be open to collaborations with local artists, Newton relayed that their aim is promotion of talent at every level so those who will show interest and capability will surely be taken on.
"Uganda has a panoply of talented rappers and vocalists. And although they will target the exceptional ones, they are open to giving advice to those whose music they can improve because that's one of the major aims of this tour", said NTO at the press conference.
Ugandans should thus brace their selves to groove to famous hits like "We like to ball", fast life which featured Cassidy, "so serious" among hordes of internationally played songs the artist wields.
