Following several failed attempts of holding the Kyarenga concert at Mandela National Stadium, commonly referred to as Namboole, Bobi Wine has pulled out of those efforts and will now hold the concert at his One Love Beach in Busabala.
The star who now has two profiles of an artist (Bobi Wine) and that of the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament (Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu) had preferred to have his guests in this stadium, which has a seating capacity of over 40,000, but those efforts were thwarted after the managers of Mandela National Stadium advised him to look for an alternative venue following a complaint from the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA).
According to FUFA, the national team could lose out on points that are crucial in its qualifying for AFCON 2019 should the stadium be found to be in conditions unacceptable by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
Uganda Cranes will be playing against Cape Verde on November 17, 2018 so FUFA did not want to take chances now that the Kyarenga concert was being held more or less in the period when the AFCON game was slated to take place.
Mandela National Stadium had a slot for VIP's paying 30k, but in the new venue, everyone is a VIP and the patrons will be paying 10k as confirmed by Bobi Wine in a presser he held on Monday in Kamwokya.
Bobi Wine also went on to say that he had communicated to Uganda Police about the Kyarenga Concert and he expects them to provide security.
According to the new poster, the Busaabala gates will be opened as early as 7am.
