Will it really happen or not? Those have been some of the FAQs regarding Bobi Wine‘s forthcoming Kyarenga concert but it has been given a fresh boost with new dates confirmed and a set of new guidelines to be followed.

Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine will definitely hold his Kyarenga concert on 9th November 2018. The concert which was slated to happen on 20th October has been pushed further after the earlier set date was occupied by another event at Namboole stadium.

The venue has not been changed and the concert will happen at Namboole stadium though a set of new strict guidelines have been installed to be followed prior and during the concert.

First, the promoters in charge of the show, Emma Promotionz and Marketing Agency is expected to get a police clearance and submit it to the stadium management to confirm the event.

Then they are expected to make full payment for the venue hire charges to confirm the booking. If that is not cleared by 29th October, the offer will be withdrawn.

The turf surface of the stadium has been exempted from being used by the revelers and Bobi Wine’s team. The stands/seats will be used by the fans and the stage will be setup on the running track.

Namboole stadium is the biggest stadium in Uganda

This is because the Uganda Cranes football team will be playing against Cape Verde at Namboole stadium on 16th November 2018 so the playing surface has to be preserved.

One other peculiar condition that has been set is that gates to the stadium will be open from 6am until 10pm. Beyond 10pm, nobody will be expected to perform at the venue, something which is unheard of especially for concerts happening in Kampala.

Whatever the case however, Bobi Wine and his team vow to put up a spirited performance and we are set to register new records if everything goes as planned.
