Saturday 21st September was the date set aside for Ugandan music fans to come out in large numbers and support Wabuyu Gereson a.k.a Gravity Omutujju who held his concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval.
The buildup to the concert dubbed ‘Ekyakuzala Kyekilikuta’ did not have too much hype like the past two concerts he has held and it also came at the back of controversial events that exposed the LugaFlo rapper as a violent and arrogant man, something he has often showed in his lifestyle.
The music side has also not been exceptional and several of the songs that he has released prior to the concert did not gain much momentum on the music charts, not even amongst his largest audience made up of the common man.
A more critical look into the attendance left us satisfied however, putting into consideration that more than a half of the venue was filled by the revelers at the time performances began.
In comparison to the past two concerts that the rapper has held at the venue, last night’s was an anticlimax and the VIP section took long to get filled up.
On the positive side however, whoever turned up was there to have fun regardless of other factors. The hype was really high from the time the performances commenced at around 8pm.
The show was kicked off with performances from musicians including Chameleone, Spice Diana, Pallaso, Karole Kasita, Ykee Benda, Fik Fameica, VIP Jemo, Grenade, B2C Ent., Mickie Wine, Barbie Jay, Hitnature, among others.
Gravity Omutujju stepped on stage at 10:44pm dressed in an all-white attire. He was uplifted with a makeshift lift for a minute as he thanked his fans for not disappointing him.
He kicked off his performance with the ‘Malangajja’ song, very much to the pleasure of the excited crowd. He followed it with his 2012 ‘Swagga’ hit song. He mixed them up with freestyles which moved the revelers.
The rapper sang all his popular songs and the sound was good enough to compliment his high energy levels, giving such a show to remember for the loyal fans that paid their hard-earned money to watch him perform.
Congratulations to the rapper upon yet another achievement.
