Dancehall ‘King’ Cinderella Sanyu and rapper Feffe Bussi lived up to their billing on Saturday night as the two stars took Mbale town by storm during the Guinness Night Football extravaganza that took place last night at the Thatch Gardens in Mbale.
The two stars were the headliners for the much-anticipated football series that has been traversing the country for over a month now after it was launched back in October.
The stars who are a phenomenon on stage also took to the pitch with each star choosing a team and playing penalties and for a moment you would think they were football stars in waiting.
Feffe and his Morning Crew team scored two out of four penalties while Cindy showed she is truly a king both on the stage and on the pitch scoring a clean three of four penalties taken with her Super 7 team.
Speaking to Journalists during the event, UBL’s Cathy Twesigye couldn’t hide her excitement about the series.
“I cannot tell you how proud I am about the series and what we have achieved. We set out to bring our consumers together with something that they are passionate about which is football but decided to add our Guinness touch and twist. I am more than happy that we managed to bring the experience to as many people as possible and have shared in the joy and showed the world out there that we are definitely Made of More,” said Cathy
The Night also saw over sixteen teams go head to head in an epic show down as each team struggled to make the cut that would be the doorway to the Kampala finals that are slated to take place in December.
Some of the teams included Phonex A, Phonex B, Team El Tanjia Junior, El Tanjia Senior, Super 7, Katika FC, Elgon Yellow, Morning Crew, Mbale Gospel among others who were all bested by team El Tangia and Super 7 who won the 5-Aside football and Human Foosball respectively sealing their places in the Kampala finals next month.
The Night ended on a high with an enthralling performance from Cindy taking revelers on a journey with songs like; One & Only, Copy Cat, Ayokyayokya, Run this city and lastly her 2019 club banger Boom party that sent the crowd wild.
The Guinness Night Football series will now return Kampala for a grand finale that is slated to take place at MTN warehouse on December 7, where all winning teams in the different regions will be fighting for a chance at the juicy cash prize and a dream trip to Nigeria for a Pan-African football extravaganza.
