Kyarenga Concert will go on as scheduled despite an earlier ban.

Mandela National Stadium management has finally cleared  Bobi Wine’s Uganda concert dubbed ,”Kyarenga concert” to go ahead but on November 9

The much anticipated  Kyarenga concert which  aims at officially launching the singer’s latest album Kyarenga was set to happen this weekend, however dates of the concert changed from October, Saturday 20, to Friday, November 9, due to wrangles with police over clearance.

The concert’s official organizers, Emma Promotions and Marketing Agency have confirmed that the concert will take place.


”Kyarenga Concert to happen on the 9th Nov 2018 at Mandela National Stadium Namboole. We reached the agreement with the stadium management yesterday and the only remaining part is the police to do its job of providing security. Tickets will go on sale next week and trust me this is going to be the concert of the century,”  read a post on social media

According to a contract , Kyarenga album launch will proceed as planned provided Bobi Wine and team fulfills three conditions i.e. clearance by the police, payment of full Shs32,000,000 by October 29, 2018, and not to step on the stadium’s turf during the concert.

“As you are aware, the stadium shall host a Uganda Cranes match on the 16th November. Accordingly, you are not allowed to access the turf/grass during your event. You will only use the seats/stands for your fans and the running track for the equipment setup,” the letter signed by Namboole’s MD partly read.

Bobi Wine was expected to officially launch his latest hit song, Kyarenga, an Afro-beat love hit in which the embattled MP expresses his love for a girl he is pursuing in May but was not able to.

Since entering parliament last year the singer has emerged as a leading critic of Museveni, a 74-year-old former rebel leader in charge since 1986, firing up a youthful population tired of the old guard.
