Betting and gaming fans in Kigali were treated to a spectacular performance by Bruce Melodie on Saturday at Amahoro Stadium Parking ground as Gorilla Games Rwanda, a new online betting company, launched operations in Kigali.
The betting company is owned by Cheza Rwanda Games Limited, a local integrated online betting company, and it will give betting fans an option to bet online anytime, from anywhere using their mobile phones or computers.
The official launch came after a month-long tour during which the company was reaching out to betting fans in different parts of the country.
The betting company had remarkable road shows during which the RnB singer helped to attract big crowds at all locations –from Rwamagana to Musanze to Rubavu and Huye. He is the firm’s brand ambassador.
The official launch in Kigali was also an opportunity for the betting company to hand over prizes to individuals and teams that made a difference in the competitions over the past month.
Unlike the upcountry road shows, Bruce Melodie performed the majority of his hit songs before an average audience in Kigali, from Kungola, his collaboration with female singer Sunny, Ikinya, Ndakwanga and Embera zo to Bonne Appetit, Uzandabure and Tuza, a collaboration with Allioni, among many.
He also graced the awarding ceremony after his performance as the company recognized the best performing individuals and teams in different competitions that happened over the past month, including in mini football, basketball, volleyball and inflatables.
Huye were crowned the champions in the football competitions and were given a trophy, Visit Rwanda-branded sports kits and a cheque of Rwf100, 000 while each of member of the tournament winning team walked away with a smartphone.
