It was a night to remember for Davis Ntare, the TPF4 winner, as he received a huge welcome at his homecoming party at Club Silk, last Friday.
The over 500 guests that consisted of Ugandan celebrities, family and fans gave him a standing ovation as he walked into the club.
Surprised by the huge reception, Davis nearly came to tears, but he quickly regained his composure and begun a victory dance with family members and fans who turned up in huge numbers to share in his victory.
Renowned Ugandan artist ‘Coco Finger’ kicked off the performances with his two popular hits, ‘Mikono Wagulu’ and ‘My Miss’.
Davis then took to the stage to thank his fans. He was joined by his family to cut a cake that he shared with all the guests who turned up.
Playing the perfect host, Davis walked around the club serving his guests. Minutes later, he performed his song “Yegwe” and “Shake a shake”.
Davis thanked all his fans and sponsors, particulary, East African Breweries for creating Tusker Project Fame. “I thank EABL for devoting their time and resources to developing music talent in this region,” he said.
Bebe Cool, one of Uganda’s finest artists crowned the night with his big hits, ‘Bogola Kko’ and ‘Kasepiki’.
Just before he left the stage, he volunteered some words of wisdom: “There are two things involved in becoming a good artist. You have to work hard and sing from your heart. Don’t let anyone bring you down,” he advised.
Davis’ story is one of perseverance and determination as he was sent back home during TPF 3’s gala show.
He auditioned for a second time at the beginning of this season in Uganda and Kenya. He finally made it into the Academy and was so overwhelmed with emotion during this year’s opening gala night that he went on his knees in gratitude.
That determination paid off when he was crowned the winner on December 5, 2010.
Davis’ win crowned eight weeks of high-octane entertainment that was filled with surprises, twists and best of all, talent.
