Kampala, the “Area Boys” are coming!
After a long time of anticipating a coming to Uganda and delaying due to lacking a promoter to bring them to the +256, the UK Afro Swing group are set to be flying in soon to entertain their family and fandom this September; thanks for the big boys of Malembe Lifestyle who have stepped in.
The six-man all-male group have been announced to be headliners of the second edition of the Malembe Block Party.
Composed of members; Kruddz, Mojo, OGD, Dope, Abz, Mxjib, Grown Up and Roots, the group of origins from Nigerian and Ghanaian heritage, the group has over the years been able to establish a firm link between Africans in the diaspora and their homes with hits “Petite”, “Ourself”, “Trust Issues”, “Yo Darlin”, “Roadblock”, “Options” featuring fellow UK resident and Rapper Tion Wayne.
The Malembe Block Party will be happening for the first time in two years; since the event happened and it was at the Guvnor Parking Lot (in Industrial Area) and featured performances from A Pass, Big Trill as headlined by Joeboy and WSTRN.
Whereas the venue for the event might not have been announced, one thing is certain, NSG are coming to Uganda, and tickets to the event are now available on Quicket; Regular tickets (Ordinary) are at Ugx. 50,000/=, Silver (VIP) tickets are Ugx. 100,000/= and the Golden Circle (VVIP) Ugx. 2,500,000 for a table of 8.
As you get in the mood for the area boys, here’s their 2021 smash hit “Petite” to set the mood.
UPDATE: NSG will be performing at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds. That’s where the Malembe Block Party will be happening.
