Bayimba visits Fort Portal

06:59 by Kaggwa Andrew






It is that time of the year when the arts schedule gets busy.

This week, the fun gets out of Kampala to Fort Portal where Bayimba foundation will be taking the Bayimba Regional Festival for the first time ever.

At the beginning of the week, an advance team from the foundation left for Fort Portal to get preparation and the pre- festival events started. Some of these included Youth and Hip Hop workshops that were conducted by legendary Sylvester Kibombo.

But the actual festival is happening this Saturday at Gardens Restaurant where many artistes from Eastern Uganda will entertain revelers from and around Fort Portal.

Headlining the show will be their own TPF star Maureen Kabasita and Kigambarali.

According to Phillip Masembe, Media Cordinator Bayimba, the purpose of using Kabasita is to give people that side enjoy their own.

“There are many big artistes from Toro but they never stage concerts there,” he said.

The Fort Portal festival will act as the western Uganda regional festival which has always been held in Mbarara previously, Masembe explains the change as a need to give artistes in Fort a chance to showcase what they too can give.
