This just in from Ugandan hip hop musician Navio's management...

Venue: UMA Showgrounds Main Hall
Ticket Price: 15,000 Regular, 40,000 VIP
"Uganda’s number 1 hip hop artist, Navio, returns for a massive show, dubbed the “Nawuliranga” concert, on Saturday January 29th 2011 at the UMA showgrounds from 6 pm. Featuring some of Africa’s top artists including the ONE8 trio, Amani, JK and Alikiba as well as local supporting acts: Klear Kut, Bobi Wine, Jackie, Lillian, Maurice Kirya, Juliana, Peter Miles and Michael Ross, the show will boast some of the best special effects ever seen in Uganda.
2010 was a huge year for Navio! He was signed to the major record label Rockstar 4000/Sony Music, he was chosen to be in the ONE8 Supergroup which featured international megastar R Kelly, and he won 2 PAM awards for Best Hip Hop Artist and Best Video for Raw.
Come and see the latest hits from Uganda’s newest international artist. The show will be produced by Fenon Entertainment and Navcorp and managed by Talent 256. The platinum sponsor for the show is Airtel, gold sponsor is Pilsner Lager and other sponsors include Rockstar 4000, Hot 100, Radio Simba and Graphic Systems."
Now three questions come to mind:
1. Will it be a success or will be it a flop?
2. Will you be there?
3. Do we need a Navio concert right now? Does Ugandan hip hop perhaps need it more?
