TRANS Africa was a hive of activity on Saturday as top Busoga comedians from the famous Swengere family took turns to entertain the audience in an exciting show dubbed “Swengere Family Show.”
The show, which was graced by the Kingdom Prime Minister, Dr. Joseph Muvawala, had singer Jose Chameleone steal the show. Chameleone’s energetic performance coupled with his pleas for the audience to leave the ordinary sections for the VIP section almost backfired. Women rush to the stage to grope him, but some had to be restrained.
Winnie Nwagi, Geostedy, Royal Simba, Sadra Sanja, Mr. World, Kim Nana and many others performed.
Hussein Muyonjo aka Swengere, Kalibala, Alton Kasolo and Zakia Namulondo aka Mama Kalibala all from Swengere Family, who also won a Zzina Award for Best Comedian, was at his usual witty best with punchlines delivered in his native lusoga.
“The turn-out was overwhelming as the space became too small and that is a sign that many people are appreciating our local comedy,” said Patrick Kwezi, the manager of Swengere comedians.
