Kenneth Mugabi announces self with new album

On Saturday the soulful singer Kenneth Mugabi proved that over the years, he has built a fan base willing to stand by his craft.

He was performing at the Design Hub in Kampala, only a few miles from  the Sheraton Hotel Gardens where Jamaican Reggae artiste Chronixx was too performing. 

Mugabi was releasing his second album, The Ugandan, a followup to his 2016 debut Kibunomu.  

Mugabi re-affirmed his place in the books of Ugandan Music stars in a fully packed expanded Design Hub venue that even at shs50, 000 fans paid and some stood to watch him.

Vocalists, Angella Kalule and Lilian Mbabazi put up great performances all endorsing Mugabi as a multi-talented vocalist who the fans should pay attention to. 

Opening his set at about 8:20pm, Mugabi choose not to entirely own the show giving an opportunity to his band and his backup artistes Sheba Shahai, Mwiza and Marsha to perform their song.

Eugene on drums, Aloysius Migadde on the lead guitar, Happy Kyazze on the saxophone, Lawrence Matovu on bass, Ronnie Bukenya on keys with Marsha and Sheba Mwiza on the backup vocals all had a good day on stage. Being a new album, it was vivid people were still taking it in thus, a few could sing along to songs until Nkwegomba.
