"It will be a chance for everyone in the east to share culture"
Western Uganda has the Bakiga Nation. Blame it on the jabs thrown on social media by the Bakiga, but the chaps from Eastern Uganda have responded with the Eastern Megafest.
News reaching our desk has it that the organisers have reached deep in their pockets and armed themselves with a powerful line-up of artistes, headlined by Cindy Sanyu.
The show however, features a lot more. It will be a cultural festival, where all tribes and cultures from the east will be represented through music and cultural drinks and other forms of entertainment.
According to Paul Edyau of Legends Ventures and Marketing Agency, the organisers of the Mega Fest, Cindy will share the stage with Vampino, Washington, comedian Swengere and the best comedy export from the east, Emma Napoleone.
"The event will be about three aspects. It will be an avenue for old boys and old girls from all the traditional schools in the east to meet up and network. People from schools like Mwiri College, Butiki, Jinja College, Ngora SS, Nabumali SS, Namasagali, Tororo Girls, Teso College and many more will reunite at the festival," Edyau said.
"It will be a chance for everyone in the east to share culture; a reason traditional performances are being prepared for the same cause. Expect a lot of Embaile, Kadodi drums, adungu, malwa, millet, among panoply of things that symbolise the different tribes in the east. It will also be a platform for domestic tourism promotion," relayed Edyau.
