Kampala — It might have rained the entire day and night, but that did not stop thousands of revelers from flocking the cricket oval to watch Jamaican singer Sean Paul.

By 6:00pm, jam on Jinja Road had cars moving bumper to bumper, all heading for the Cricket Oval.

By 9:30pm, it was a full house, both at the 'general happiness" section and the VIP section.

Curtain raisers included Peter Miles, Navio, Mith, JB, Toniks, Brenda of HB Toxic, Radio and Weasel, Young Mulo and Jose Chameleone among others.

They performed until 10:25pm, when Sean Paul got on stage. With two female dancers, his DJ and a band, the Gat to luv you singer gave his all; dance and music, until midnight.

The crowd kept singing, waving and dancing along, even when the weather was getting colder and colder. He performed up to midnight, doing a mixture of new and old songs such as Dutty, Still in Love, Gat to luv you and Temperature among others.

Sean Paul said: "People in the world have dreams. Ever since I was here in 2004, I have been dreaming of coming back to perform in Kampala. Performing in Uganda for the second time is a dream come true for me."

At the end of the night, fans left contented as they had really got value for the sh25,000 that each of them parted with to be part of the show. The concert was sponsored by Club Pilsner and Talent Africa.
