December is just two months away and as expected, city socialites have already started their ‘fights’ to prove who has more money.
South African based socialite, Katsha threw a luxurious party shortly after Bebe Cool’s concert. Soon we will be witnessing SK Mbuga’s multi-million wedding in November. We have learnt that sports promoter and city socialite, Jack Pemba is part of something big scheduled to take place in the same month.
He is among the sponsors of the coming of the legendary music group, Kool & Gang to Uganda.
“We always want to bring such people but we don’t have people to trust. It’s not that we don’t have money. No. Unlike Others (city socialites) I have my money but I had not got a person to trust. This group here (Aly Allibhai & Elvis Ssekyanzi) are the best people. When they reached me, I agreed to sponsor the event because I trust them,” he told journalists at Silk Liquid during the announcement of the concert.
Kool & the Gang created a unique blend of jazz, soul and funk to that have had people dancing since 1969. Kool & the Gang has sold over 70 million album copies worldwide and influenced the music of three generations.
Thanks to smash hit songs like Celebration, Cherish, Fresh, Jungle Boogie, Joanna, Too Hot, Hollywood Swinging, Lets Go Dancing, Summer Madness, Get Down On It and Ladies Night; they’ve earned two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums.
Kool & the Gang have performed continuously for the past 5 decades, longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time. They will jet into Uganda with their full live band as they celebrate nearly 50 years in the music industry.Their show is set for 11 November.
