Uganda: Vampino, Azawi Impress Revellers At Guinness Bright House in Jinja

The Guinness Bright House, an empowering platform for creatives to collaborate and shine brightest made a mark in Jinja on Saturday. The venue of the Eastern tour was the monumental source of Nile, at Nile Park.

The experience kicked off with a day mode that saw creatives treated to a buffet of creative outlets in the spaces of fashion, music, art and sports. This included among other activities a live art painting session with celebrated visual artist Kwiz_era. He also gave an art masterclass on what passionate young artists can do to grow a step closer to realising their artistic dreams.

In his masterclass, Benon Mugumbya, a veteran music producer that needs no introduction, talked creatives through the simplest ways of making music and how technology can enhance those dreams.

Benon’s masterclass saw creatives witness the live creation of what can possibly be a “hit” song when he put digital content creator and comedian Uncle Mo on the spot and the two created “Makanika we Kireka”. The song was recorded and mastered live on stage and had revellers instantly singing along.

The day mode of the Bright House also included a sports masterclass by Jinja’s very own Coach Ayub and Fufa’s Shawn Mubiru. The two spoke passionately about the talent that Jinja has and how leadership can harness it. They also talked directly to the young sports enthusiasts about passion and commitment and how it change life for the better.

However, the highlight of the experience came in during the night mode that saw the revellers treated to dancehall royalty Vampino. Whether it was nostalgia or vibes, Vampino awakened everyone’s inner dancer when he threw an exhilarating performance of some of his smash hits like Smart Wire, Kwekunyakunya and Love to Dance.
