Kyaddondo East MP-elect Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine has told fans to turn up in big numbers for Levixone’s charity concert scheduled for 14th October, 2017 at Uganda Museum – Kampala.
Through a video shared on social media on Thursday, the 35-year-old reggae star, who won a landslide victory in a by-election in June to become a lawmaker said: “I’m reminding you friends to come and support Levixone for Karamoja concert at the national museum.. it’s going to be massive,”
This charity event by a 24-year-old, is one of those expected to draw Christians and non Christians from all across the country. Bobi Wine’s video comes days since acclaimed rapper Gravity Omutujju spoke of the same cause.
Proceeds will, according to the “Samanya” hit singer, help build a school in famine-hit district, Karamoja which is located in northeastern Uganda.
The Karamoja region is one of the poorest and least developed regions, and suffers from high illiteracy rates.
This investment in education will according to Levixone help to change that, and several artists and Christian figures have joined the efforts.
Levixone, born Sam Lukas Lugolobyo is one of the most popular gospel artist in his time and serves as a symbol that gospel music has successfully crossed over to the secular masses.
His songs include Passport, ‘Noonya omu’, ‘Niwewe’, Jungle, Ani and Sugar among others.
Ticket go for only 20,000 ordinary and 50,000 VIP and are available at Christian Stations, Power 104.1 FM and Spirit 96.6 FM.
