Boys II Men, Bobi Wine rock Volts in London

Much of the Ugandan community in England woke up hoarse and groggy after a night of partying on Easter Monday at Club Volts UK thanks to music performances by Boys II Men and Bobi Wine.
Bobi Wine was in London for the “Fire in the City” concert but ended up curtain-raising for the world’s most successful R&B male vocal group of all time Boys II Men who were on an Easter tour as well.
The big party was attended by mostly Ugandans who are regular patrons of the club.
The American R&B/soul singing group brought down the house and the cheers of revellers could have made some people think something crazy was going on inside the club, which is situated on 169-171 Fore Street in London.
Bobi Wine gave the concert a perfect start with his hits Ladies Wine, Bada, Tolimba and Kabaseke that got Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris of Boys II Men also nodding before they also jumped onto stage minus the sick Michael McCary.
Bobi Wine looked star-struck as the ladies breathlessly responded to the Boys II Men’s love ballads---singing along and craving to touch the guys! Some girls went on stage and danced with the guys.
They crooned some of their old ballads that brought them the big success including I’ll Make Love to You, End of the Road and One Sweet Day featuring Mariah Carey---and although the diva was absent to do her part, the lads replaced her lyrics with some new words.
They also performed new songs off their newest album The Remedy. They also did Morning Love which features UK-based singer/songwriter/producer E-Monie although he was a no-show despite the show being in his country.
The audience referred to the show as “a landmark concert” and during an after party Shawn said the audience was one of the best he has performed for in a while.
After the show revellers started craving for autographs not only from the American superstars but from the local lad Bobi Wine too.
And manager of the club Mr Saad Buwembo said Club Volts UK would host Nathan for another show come May 4 before the launch of Timberland’s new album a week later.
