What a fun year this has been! Sean Paul, P Square, Sisqo, Dermaco have all held shows in Uganda.

And what better way to end it all with Jamaican chart toppers Mavado and Chris Martins. Cheaters Prayer and Paper Loving are no doubt among the biggest hits of 2012. Add that to So Special, Settle down, Final Destination, and Come into my Room and you understand why it's going to be a fiesta. Thanks to Uganda Breweries Limited, Ugandans have a chance to end the year in style with the two dancehall giants.

The Jamaican duo will be performing at Lugogo Cricket Oval tomorrow December 29. This will be the first time the two are performing anywhere in East Africa. This is another day for Ugandans to quench their never-ending thirst for dancehall music. Mavado, real name David Constantine Brookswill, was inspired by the likes of Bounty Killer while Chris Martin says he has always dreamt of becoming a star.

Edgar Birungi, the Brand Manager Bell, promised lots of nonstop fun and action with the country's A-List artistes as curtain raisers.

"In line with Bell Nation strategic pillars of progressive achievement, brand evolution and brand affinity, Mavado and Chris Martin resonate with Bell attributes. We believe that this will be the party of the year during the festive season and will bring much fun to the people of Uganda as we celebrate the Bell Nation's and our individual achievements in 2012", he said.

Patrons will enjoy Bell lager in the newly introduced Bell cans. This comes a few weeks after Sean Paul brought the house down at the same venue. Another full house is expected this time round. Tickets go for Shs 25,000 and Shs 60,000 for VIP.
