Fort Portal town was shut down on Saturday night as the Johnnie Walker highball tour made its last stop of the year in the hilly town at Afrikana Sports bar.
The tour that has been traversing the whole country since August closed the year in style with an action-packed lineup of artists and undoubtedly Uganda’s hottest DJ Selector Jay who like clockwork made revellers and town folk dance throughout the night.
Packed to capacity, the night included performances from soulful singer Winnie Nwagi; salacious singer left revellers at the event begging for more after she turned the stage upside down performing her top hits like Mataala, Bwogana her collaboration with rapper Recho Ray, For You, Yitayo and her latest club banger Amaaso, her collaboration with Vinka.
She shared the stage with Singer Pallaso who electrified the packed crowd with Twatooba, his collaboration with Nigeria’s Davido, Amaaso, wine, but it was his Kirira hit song that got the fully packed venue of revellers whining down just like the song suggests.
The night that also doubled as a learning experience saw revellers learn new and fresh ways through which they could consume Johnnie Walker Whisky as they were introduced to the Johnnie Walker Highball cocktails.
Speaking to journalists during the event International Premium Spirits Brand Manager Roger Agamba laid it all down as to why he was excited about the event.
“As Johnnie Walker, we had set out on a mission this year to show our consumers out there that you can still be young and vibrant even with Johnnie Walker hence the Highball, which has seen us experience some of our most memorable moments around the country including tonight.” said Agamba.
The event also featured performances from some of Fort portal’s finest artists who showed that they understand their home crowd. These included; Carol K, Coolman Jimmy among others and a surprising act The Mith who was in Fort Portal to surprise celebrated MC, Radiocity’s Deedan is the host of the Johnnie Walker Highball tours.
The night ended on a high with smashing DJ mixes from Selector Jay. The tour that has been to three major cities in the country so far will be crowning the tour with an event in Mbarara in January 2020.
