Many event organizers like to pepper their events with almost endless line-ups of performers.
However, the recently held Roast and Rhyme “Nyam on the Nile” edition in Jinja.
The three-day getaway experience organized by Bell Lager and Swangz Avenue – delivered a fresh take which saw two iconic bands – Abeeka and Myk Ouma’s band – entertain the guests that had made the trip to the Eastern Ugandan city.
The Abeeka band performed covers to Chronixxs’ Skanking Sweet, Welcome to Jamrock, and Tarrus Riley's Don’t come back similarly, Myk Ouma took the crowd into a reggae mood performing a cover to Bob Marley’s Three little birds
Kasita put up a splendid and energetic performance in the company of a group of talented dancers who got the crowd in a frenzy.
Zex Bilangilangi surprised the crowd with his signature dancehall rhythm – with many being surprised at his ability to perform live.
After spotting Dr. Jose Chameleone in the crowd, Bilangilangi coaxed him into taking the stage for what would turn out to be a beautifully executed and unscripted 10-minute freestyle session that ended with the legend performing his hit – Kiggwa Leero.
After the performances, DJ Ali Breezy took custody of the crowd until later into the night.
Alongside the music, the event and picnic experience featured lots of fun and exciting experiences like jet skiing and tubing on the Nile, as well as exciting group games and a karaoke bonfire evening – all of which were specially curated by Bell Lager under its Mpola Enjoyments thematic campaign.
Matilda Babuleka, Bell Lager’s brand manager, said, “Nothing says chill vibes more than an afternoon out with those closest to you, some games, some meat, some cold beer and the sounds of a live band entertaining you. This is what Mpola Enjoyments is and as a brand, Bell Lager is proud to bring these and more experiences for our consumers because it is our purpose to let the good times flow anytime, anywhere.”
She added that this edition of Roast and Rhyme gave the brand’s consumers a different experience and a perfect getaway from town and work.
