So, how does one describe one of the biggest and best concerts in East and maybe even the whole of Africa? Of course we hope that none of our followers at UgGospelLife on Twitter missed the show. We were blessed to be an online media outlet for the Power Fm organized event. Now, back to the Phat Fest 2014 night. It is something that left many so blessed. From the time, Becky and Brian of Cruise Control declared the show open to a Kelele Takatifu performance, SOC and then Ezekiel Azonwu doing wonderful poetry, the night was set to be epic.
Deejays Stef, Twonjex, Peruz (all from Power fm) and Robin San were keen on keeping the crowd entertained as they broke the ice. Holy Keane Amooti (pictured left) also did a great job delivering his hit songs.
Spoken word was well represented and we had the organizing team to thank for taking the risk. All the the sceptical ones were disproven when the over 8000 people stood in amazement as Janette of P4CM delivered her poems and then was joined by Ezekiel who also did a Nigerian pidgin on us before singing the popular “My God Is Good oh… ” song.
Lilly Million of the Fresh Impressions African label was another artist that gave the mostly Hip Hop, Dancehall and Afropop loving crowd a different but unique touch of her own. She stood with her guitar and just blew us away by the mostly acoustic performance.
The main artist for the night, DA T.R.U.T.H came onto the stage amidst screams and excitement that was left fully satisfied. He performed some of his most famous songs in Uganda including J. I. F. E (Jesus Is For Everybody), Promises, Step Up, and other songs that got the crowd hyped and jumping around in excitement at the Kyadondo Rugby Club grounds. While rapping and rhyming at the event, he managed to minister to the mostly young Christian concert. His drummer who he has been moving with on the Africa wide tour was ruthless to the drum sets. In fact, he was too good that even a day after the event many of our tweeps asked us to fish him out of his hiding. We got them the handle @musickid856.
The other major performances were from Kris Erroh who invited Zambian Artist Abel Chungu Musuka and then the chain followed with a Lota House takeover at Phat Fest when Mag 44 performed Vichani and Pompi joining on the same stage.
Guruka singer Coopy Bly, was one of the nights best performances just like Jackie Senyonjo, Wilson Bugembe, Ruyonga, G Way (who performed one song) and Levixone who joined former Tusker Project Fame singer Daisy Ejang to sing Shuga. Daisy had earlier perfomed her beautiful single, Incredible after telling the crowd she did nit feel pretty until she found her worth in God. That was an inspiring moment.
