Weekends are for recovering after a busy week. What are you going to do this weekend? Here are some of the great events taking place that you and your family might find interesting. Have a nice weekend.

Kigali Up festival @ Amahoro Stadium

The third annual KigaliUp starts tomorrow at Amahoro stadium’s main parking ground and ends on Sunday. There will be plenty of entertainment options, live music, food and just about everything else will be part of the festival.

The two-day music festival will feature international musicians HabibKoite and Bamada from Mali, MA IA from Kenya, Joey Blake from USA, TonyOsanah from Argentina, Canada-based Rwandan musician Nicole Musoni and Lion Story from Burundi.

That’s not all because local artistes Jay Polly, Gaby, Shanel, Makanyaga, Ikobe, SafaPapy John, Mani Martin, Dream Boys, Rafiki, Riderman and Liza Kamikazi, will also entertain music lovers.

Others include Impala, Babu, RasKayaga, Blessed Sisters, Nubian Gypsies, Patrick Nyamitali, Strong Voice and Sophie Nzayisenga among others.

Entrance fee is Rwf2000 for a single day but to save time and money, pay Rwf 3000 and you’ll be able to attend both festivals. Children below 10 will be granted free entrance. Don’t miss the festival because there will be plenty of fun.

Primus Guma Guma goes to Musanze


The 11 Primus Guma Guma Superstar contestants will be performing in Musanze in a live road show, as they demonstrate their ability to win this year’s Rwf24m grand prize.

The contestants are Knowless, Mico Prosper, Fireman, DanyNanone, Senderi, Kamichi, Urban Boyz, Christopher, Riderman, Bull Dog and Dream Boys.

The show will be held tomorrow at Musanze Stadium.  Buy two bottles and get one for free.

Night clubs

The weekend starts here, and since Kigali now is known as city that never sleeps, its nightlife is surely exciting.

Every night in Kigali you can find something that satisfies your taste. So don’t bore yourself, find some place to chill or dance and party. Our picks for you this weekend are K-Club in Nyarutarama, Golemi at Lemigo Hotel in Kimihurura, Legacy at Hotel Mille Collines and Club Next in Muhima.

Pubs and Restaurants

Plan a weekend escape at any of these hangouts in Kigali; KGL Fast Food, Cozy, Orange Courts, Chapter One, Ogopogo, and Car wash. They all play good music and have a nice ambience.

Africa Bite is another great restaurant and it serves a wide range of African dishes. 

Those in Kicukiro can start from Stone House just after SONATUBE and eat, drink as you listen to the best of music. Kisementi is awash with bars; choose any of the following, Divinity, The Dug Out, Joy Time, Rosty, Sticky, African Villa, Master Grill, and Stella.
