Thousands of people gathered at Amahoro Stadium’s parking yard on July 4, for the concert to launch Sgt Robert’s album, ‘Kama Jeshi.’
Sgt Robert’s extraordinary power and charisma on stage was awesome and his ability to inspire Rwandans has made him a music icon.
However, the concert was stopped when the police ordered DJ Kadir to stop the music and switch off the music.
“We were told to perform from 6-10 p.m, but we extended for two more hours,” Sgt Robert told The New Times.
And while many left disappointed because Uganda’s long awaited artists Cindy and Rabadaba didn’t perform, there were thousands for whom the night was a unique moment as the country celebrated its 16th liberation anniversary.
Vibrantly gifted, Tom Close, Uncle Austin, Riderman, The Brothers, Paccy, Dream Boys and King James sent the crowds to the highest level of excitement.
Babu, 9, was received with a great deal of affection on stage. Everyone was excited to see him perform his song “Hip-hop nabwo ari iraka kuringe’, meaning (Hip-hop isn’t a part-time job for me).
