Have you had an event full of deejay jiggling you? yes this was the thing last friday at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds for the biggest deejay celebration the country has ever seen. Dubbed the UG Mix Maestro, the deejay party was a climax of a three-month tour that has taken deejays and explosive music experiences on a countrywide tour to some of Uganda’s biggest towns like Arua, Masaka, Mbale, Gulu and Mbarara.
The party was organised under the UG Mix Maestro campaign’s second edition that kicked off three months ago. The first edition of the deejay campaign was launched and held last year, and featured a competitive regional battle. The notable male and female winners from the first edition, DJs Shan and Xzyl respectively were active participants in the second edition, and were present at the finale.
Revellers having a good time at the party
This year’s edition had a remarkable addition to the partners. Uganda’s first DJ Academy, Ripper Inc. 256 joined the tour to give revelers and deejay fans individual experiences on the discs with tutors Mr. Ripper and DJ Brown on hand to provide tutorials for interested revelers.
Friday night’s party brought together a wealth of celebrated people from the deejay community, deejay fans and loyal followers, corporates, slay queens and music lovers.
the tour this year was organised and sponsored by Uganda Waragi in partnership with the DJ Association of Uganda. DJ Naselow, popularly known as Kelele was on the opening set and was later joined by DJs Nimrod, Magic Switch, BexXx, Jo, Shan, Cisse, Ciza, Sir Aludah, Naselow, Slick Stuart and Roja; and spin mistresses Lolah, MaryJo and Xzyl. The deejay industry has gathered a following to rocket themselves right to the top of the music industry, as was evidenced on the night.
Yet again, Spirit of Uganda proved one truth – that it is living its true purpose of bringing people together to celebrate life and talent.
