It is hard to imagine the last time a foreign artiste headlined a show outside Kampala. There are chances it has never happened.
Uganda’s social scene has Kampala as the capital of happiness, some even claim the city owns the number one spot for the East African region and because of this, established and up and coming foreign artistes always end up performing in Kampala.
If they leave the capital, chances are they will be on a game drive.
Yet on Saturday, this analogy seemed to flip onto itself when South African duo Black Motion took to the stage at University Inn at the second Smirnoff Fiesta in Mbarara.
The DJ duo has been going through a lot recently, involved in a messy break up that saw one half of them, Bongani Robert Mahosana, sue his founding partner Roy Thambo Mabogwane over studio vandalism.
