The on-and-off Sean Kingston concert in Kampala is turning out to be a serious disturbance to local artistes and many show organisers.
More than five local artistes have had to move their launch dates for more than once due to the Kingston saga as they fear to put their events on the same weekend as the international stars’ show, which has been in the balance ever since he was involved in a nasty jet sky accident.
Iryn Namubiru seems to be the most affected artiste because this is her third time to change. Her manager Thaddeus Mubiru told us that the original date for Namubiru’s Birowozo launch was July 29 but they moved it to September 16 fearing to collide with Kingston. But Talent Africa and Club Beer have since moved the Kingston concert to September 16 forcing Namubiru to settle for October 14.
Meanwhile, Coco Finger is still trying to locate a new date in October for his Party Animal concert. His manager Emma Carlos Mulondo told us that their plan is to hold their concert right after Sean Kingston. Coco was due to hold the concert in August but Kingston’s shift in date means he does too.
Meanwhile, Jose Chameleone seems unshaken and he is set to hold his on September 2. His manager Sam Mukasa said, “We can change because someone else is wandering through dates.”
