After the night's host, Andrew Kyamagero, ushered the much expectant fans into the night at close to 9.p.m, UB5 band treated us to scintillating jazz versions of Uganda's popular songs.

The band was later joined by the first act, Kabuye Sembogga, who belted out some of his hits that made him a house hold name back in the late 90s and early 2000s.


He was followed by Halima Namakula (probably approaching her 60s) who rode on her old-still-looking-young fame than vague musicality in the act she put up. She sung monster hits like Ekimbewo and Kibuuka, accompanied by energetic dancers.


The highlight of the night was an invigorating performance by Mariam Ndagire. She got the full house dancing to her tunes. For a moment, it sounded like a choir as revellers sung along word for word.


And then DJ Alberto, who has been in the game for 30 years, mixed world's 80s and 90's disco jams to the excitement.


The night, with  the ballroom packed to the brim, was crowned by celebrated band, Afrigo, which took it to after midnight.
