This Saturday, the much-anticipated Club Music Video awards will be happening at the Kampala Serena hotel Victoria hall.
The awards have been met with much scorn and praise. Key artistes such as Bebe Cool and Sheebah Karungi have pulled out for reasons best known to them.
Also, arguably the best video producer in the country at the moment Ian Akankwasa aka Sasha Vybz, has followed suit.
However, the organizers are firm and have stopped at nothing to ensure the event is a success. They have hired Fenon Productions to manage the stage, lights and the floor.
Organizers have ensured the glamour is felt to the fullest with a host of emcees. Guests shall also be free to take and upload as many photos as they want. Instead of the usual red carpet, this will be a ‘blue- carpet’ event. Yes, ‘blue’ because that is the theme color of Club beer – the main sponsors.
Comedian Alex Muhangi and Sanyu FM’s Crystal Newman Kavulu will be the main hosts. On the carpet will be former Big Brother Africa housemate and Urban TV presenter Denzel, as well as NTV’s Sheila Gashumba.
Back stage will be former Miss Uganda Stellah Natumbwe aka Ellah and Radio City presenter Deedan talking to the artistes and also having brief conversations with the judges.
There will be performances, but the organizers are tight-lipped on whom they have on the list. Their argument is that revealing the performers might take the excitement away. Prior to the start, there will be a cocktail for the early birds.
