IN a spirit of patriotism, various Rwandans living in Uganda swarmed Blue Africa Bar at Crested Towers recently to watch traditional performances by various Rwandan artistes.

What is more fascinating about these Rwandans is their time consciousness. It was quite surprising that by 7:00pm, the official kick-off time, the venue was full. The audience was eagerly waiting for the entertainers to take to the stage.

The occasion was Kinyarwanda Nite and on the line-up to perform were Mako Nikoshwa, Omucho Traditional dancers and Sandra Karigirwa, who are some of the best artistes in Rwanda.

The night opened with about three little-known Rwandan singers, who performed well. But everything seemed tentative until the Omucho Traditional dancers took to the stage.

These ones put up some spellbinding and exciting dances, which were punctuated by a drum orchestra. They leaped and swayed as the captivated members of the audience ululated.

Karigirwa exuded confidence as she roasted the audience with her Nyina Womuntu, which prompted a sing-along by her fans.

Then to cap a great night, Nikoshwa, who looked uncowed by his surroundings, delivered a non-stop six-song performance that made the audience leap to their feet and dance.

He performed songs like Hora, Mujaane, Agaseko and Ndi Omushumba.
