THE run-up to the show had been as much a story of interest as of curiosity. Being the sultry singerâ€™s first ever solo show, there were a lot of expectations.
Now that the event was held, Angela Kalule can be said to have successfully pulled off her first concert at the Golf Course Hotel last Friday.
Save for the late start late at 9:00pm, two hours past the scheduled kick-off of 7:00pm, the rest of the programme flowed smoothly.
From when MCs Patriko and Abbey Mukiibi flagged off the event, singing the National and Buganda anthems, it was almost non-stop musical action to the end. In that, time Angelaâ€™s fans filled the not-so-large hall.
Taking to the stage before Kalule were Annet Nandujja, Dr. Tee, Grace Nakimera and Sweet Kid, who raised the mood in the house.
Backed by a group of instrumentalists from the different bands she has played with over the years, Kalule performed track after track for over an hour. She had two breaks between, in which opening acts Aziz Azion, Haruna Mubiru performed.
The voluptuous singer serenaded the crowd virtually most of her songs, including the popular Akamuli, Ontwale. She also paid homage to her karaoke roots by doing a number of American singer Alicia Keyâ€™s tracks.
With a remarkably good sound and organisation, perhaps no fan found the Club Beer-sponsored event unworthy of their money.
