Ugandans in the UK had a successful Annual Gospel Concert on Good Friday 29th March 2013
The Annual Gospel Concert on Good Friday was a well packed event attended by Gospel lovers from all over the UK and mainland Europe. The concert took place at HaribenBachubhai, Nagrecha Hall (Olympic Village), in East London.
The two celebrated Ugandan artistes Judith Babirye and Wilson Bugembe were supported by other seasoned artistes, including Eva Nakamate, Josephine Bukenya, Josephine Musoke, Alice Nabwendi, and Rwanda’s popular Gospel artiste Jackie Mugabo, who thrilled people with her Ssi NsongaLuganda song.
The organisers of the event (The Promota Events) said that the main purpose of the Uganda Gospel Concert can be summarised as bringing together and promoting inter-faith fellowship among Ugandan Christians in the UK, as well as providing community cohesion initiatives through activities such as music and drama.
This was a one of a kind concert and is set to become the largestannual Ugandan Gospelevent totake place in the UKagain. Next year,the planners are anticipated to bring in other celebrated Gospel artistes from East Africa. The hosts of this year’s concert wereFlaviaWamala and Andrew Bukenya, not to mention the main overseers, thePromota Events team led by Sophia Mwanuata and Mira Kayitesi.
The event also created an entrepreneur spirit within the community, where more than 10 free exhibition stalls were offered to Ugandan SME's and business start-ups, encouraging Ugandans to realise their aspirations. The entrepreneurial spirit isn’t just about money. It’s about building wealth through resources that only great relationships can bring. It’s about connecting the dots, those connection points of intelligence, wisdom, desire and ability that are innate to people. It’s about having the intuition not only to know that they exist but also to know what to do with them to continuously cultivate innovation and initiative.
Mr. Mutenza, the main organiser of the event said "we don't organise these events to make money, but this is rather another way of promoting community cohesion among Ugandans, which is currently lacking; a community can never grow when it is segmented and divided."
The event was sponsored by MoneyGram, Xpress Money and Brussels Airlines who have been pillars in supporting the Ugandan community initiatives.
