Uganda: Strange Props for P Square Show

Silver Back Investment, the organizers of tonight's Chop Ma Money concert at Lugogo Cricket oval in Kampala, have promised to put up an unfamiliar show.

Yvonne Wilson, the company's boss, told us every single prop to be used at the show, including tickets, the stage and lighting have been imported and are some of the rarest in the entertainment world. Dismissing earlier rumours that Silk Events was behind the show that will see Nigerian outfits P Square make their second appearance in Uganda, Wilson clarified that she opted not to hire any Ugandan firm so as to maintain the concert's foreign pomp.

"This is going to be something Ugandans have never seen before at any concert," bragged the lady who claims to have started organizing music concerts at 16.

Meanwhile, P Square, who flew in on Wednesday are tipped to put up a magnificent performance. Beside commanding a cult following in Uganda, the twins have had a highly-successful year, dropping the global chart-topper Beautiful Onyinye ft American rapper Ricky Ross. Their most recent hit, Alingo, is trending in most Kampala night spots.

The only downside is that the boys lost their mother and mentor early this year. It hence remains to be seen whether they have overcome the tragedy. Tickets are now on sale at Shs 25,000 ordinary, VIP Shs 75,000 and the VVIP, which come with two private hostesses, are going for Shs 200,000 per head. Gates open at 2pm.

Patrick Salvado Idringi and Edwin Katamba aka Mc Kats will be the night's emcees. Chameleone, Cindy, Young Mullo, Fidempa and Tonix, among others, are part of the star-studded curtain raisers list.
