WAS it coincidence or planned? The only artistes who attended the Yâ€™ello Street Jam press conference at Club Silk last Thursday all had â€œMâ€ names; Mesach Ssemakula, Winnie Munyenga, Haruna Mubiru and Michael Ross. And so does MTN, the sole sponsors of the event for the second year running.
Elvis Sekyanzi, Club Silk Managing Director, promised that more than fourteen local artistes will perform. From Kenya, the Logambas will be there with their strong dance strokes and bongo flavoured music. After five hours of artistes performing, it will be time for a dance party that will not stop until the cockâ€™s crow.
Gates open at 7:00pm and there will a 10-15 minute display of fireworks from 10:30pm. As MTN Promotion Manager, Aggrey Kagonyera, put it, â€œyâ€™ello street jam is an extension of the MTNâ€™s music sponsorship.â€
To add to the usual clubs that some people have been running to when the street â€œcatches fireâ€ in the past street jams, the Silk Lounge will also be open.
You only need to part with sh10,000 to party on the street, come March 26.
