On Friday night, hundreds of people flocked Pasadena’s Atmosphere Club to attend the first-ever Afri-connection Nite in the country.
The nite attracted both Rwandan and Ugandan musicians who played African beats as the beer-guzzling and highly enthusiastic crowd danced the night away.
As a curtain raiser, recorded music was played, until Tom Close jumped on stage to perform. He was followed by the SPC Crew. Then the Family Squad—a group of four male singers got onto the stage to display the latest dancing strokes.
Finally, at about 12am, Jamal, one of the Ugandan artistes stepped the podium, sending revelers into frenzy when he sung his famous song ‘Obawuwo’, hit, played on most Rwanda’s radio stations.
The crowd screamed and jumped high into the air as some tried to touch him.
Clad in an army jacket with details on its back, a pair of faded jeans and black dancing shoes, he let out a loud holler: “Rwanda, are you ready?”
A deafening yeeeh filled the atmosphere. The highly gifted and experienced artistes showed revelers what they anticipated.
The high spirited patrons streamed into the place from all directions and by mid-night, every guest had reason to justify their presence. The upscale hangout that is located in the outskirts of Kigali City was filled to capacity.
But there were no regrets for paying the Rwf5,000 entrance fees.
Inside the bar
The stage setting was top-notch. Sound system was sophisticated.
The stunning changes and splendid organisation of the place bring to one the conviction that the proprietors of the place deserve a parting.
The performance of the African music cuts through all ages–the youth and old all hangouts at Pasadena’s Atmosphere Club, but its uniqueness is that it is identified with the youth.
The evening was great as the artistes never disappointed their fans.
And as hours rolled and the night recounting its best moment, the club got more and more crowed, with people almost stepping on one another.
