Lionel Richie coming to town?
Now that Zain is set to bring in R Kelly for a highly-anticipated concert next month, we can understand why other telecommunication houses are sweating profusely.
The likes of Warid, UTL and MTN are into serious head-scratching considering different avenues of countering Zain. UTL have talked about Rihanna and Warid have chattered some Beyonce but so far, we can confirm that MTN Uganda is in contact with R&B legend Lionel Richie.
The former Commodores lead singer's concert is set to be confirmed next month.
An insider tells us that MTN wants somebody related to Michael Jackson - in fact, they had at one time considered Janet Jackson only to pull out after knowing that she is busy promoting her latest album.
Lionel Richie was one of the very best friends of Michael Jackson besides being an exact age-mate.
MJ was the godfather of Lionel's adopted daughter Nicole Richie.
With R Kelly kick starting our events calendar and MTN, UTL and Warid willing to battle on, 2010 promises to be one busy for show-goers.
