Nakivubo roars as Simba clocks eight

The rapturous crowd at Nakivubo stadium were once again treated to another merry-making fete. Ekiggunda, loosely translated to mean a booming sound was the name of the concert, which waved local FM station Radio Simba to its eighth anniversary. Revellers could not ask for more. As early as 10 a.m. in the morning, gates were open for revellers who decided to start on the long night ahead of them quite early. The annual fete brings together one of the biggest crowds on the local scene and it only keeps growing by the year. This year, Ekiggunda was remarkably better organised, had a mammoth crowd and the fans had a good time. Robert Mbabazi, a cosmetologist won himself Shs1m when his number was drawn in the MTN raffle. At the fall of darkness, the grass had another story to tell. While the performances went on, couples romanced the night away oblivious of other people. Most of them were drunk by twilight.
