Lugogo fee goes up to Shs40m

There’s a shock development in the concert world in Uganda.
And it’s not a very nice one.
Lugogo Cricket Oval hire rates have gone up once again in just a short time.
Back in the days the oval used to be hired at Shs2 million for a concert; when the Pam awards made it popular it went up to Shs3m around 2006 then Shs4m in 2007. But the price has risen thrice in 2008, amazingly climbing from Shs6m to Shs34m and now it’s Shs40m to host a concert there.
The development follows an investment by MTN Uganda who have renovated the place that has become the home of big events holding the biggest concerts of the year including UB40, Akon, Wyclef Jean and Shaggy.
Is there any local artist who would like to hire Lugogo Cricket Oval?
Maybe for an album launch?
We know very few could afford that but those sponsored by MTN should count themselves into the deal.
