Uganda: Nile Breweries Throws Bash for Journalists

For the third time in a row, Nile breweries limited threw its annual media bash last Friday.

Unlike the preceding bashes that were hosted at the luxurious silk lounge, this year's bash was held at the Bukoto-based Mask lounge. The event was excellently attended despite the change of venue and by 8:30pm, the lounge was already filled up and the party had started! Trust journalists to keep time.

The fun-filled invite-only event saw journalists unwind as they showcased their God-given talents in dance, comedy and answering quizzes. They also engaged in activities that allowed them walk away with Nile breweries' gift hampers. The Gold-digger singer, Jackie Chandiru, in her famous take- me-around-the-world golden shoes and sexy black outfit did not fail to impress as she took the house down with her popular hits.

With Nile breweries hosting the bash, one would expect it to rain beers the entire night but that wasn't the case. Much as a great deal of beer was provided, it ran out at some point of the party, perhaps in an attempt to regulate us to drink responsibly.

Of course the night wasn't only about drinking and partying, it was also intended to bring all the journalists from various media houses together, thank them for their tremendous work, not only with Nile breweries but in all the other fields and to award the most outstanding journalists.

With all the awards and formalities done, it was time to party. What happens when television, radio and print journalists meet at a party with free drinks and great music? The dance floor suffers as bottles get drained.
