Several notable gospel dance-hall reggae artists from across the African continent are set to grace the inaugural Love Loud Rave concert slated for 29th Sept (today) at Kyadondo rugby grounds – Kampala.
Agent Snypa (Nigeria), Sober (Zambia), Dafari (Kenya) have all arrived in Uganda for this music event the organizers say targets both Christians and non Christians alike.
Loud Love Rave representative to Uganda, Deejay Awar who also doubles as a show host on Spirit 96.6 FM said during a press conference at Kyadondo rugby grounds on Wednesday that the event will unlike what Christians have seen before, bring something different.
“Ugandans should come and be introduced to something new. There is a new breed of what we are calling a redefinition of the party, and you should be part of it,” he stated.
Solomon Kisakye who is the Brand and Communication Manager for Love Loud said they hope to use music as a tool for changing mindsets.
“I want you to expect something different because I’m not here on my own. I’m here by the Spirit and I have prepared physically, spiritually. And I got an answer that this event is going to create a very lasting impact. Lives will be change. The young ones will be inspired. Come and experience something very different,” Agent Snypa said in her remarks.
Sober said: “This is my third time here, but every time I’m here, it feels like my first time. Uganda is a dance-hall reggae nation, people here are vibrant and warm. I’m the only reggae dance-hall artiste in Zambia who does gospel. All these counties coming together and uniting with Uganda is going to be fire because we carry different anointing from different countries so coming together, you just blaze it up – it’s going to be fire at the event. God is going to control the situation.”
Dafari, who has been in the country before said Ugandans should expect something beyond the normal. “I am excited being part of it,” he continued.
“It’s something that hasn’t happened before here. In the end, all glory goes back to God, that’s the beauty of it,” Coopy Bly said.
The group will be joined by Levixone, Zabuli, Fortune Spice, Robinsan, Hyper man Paul Selah among others.
“We have not labelled out selves as a gospel event because we want to cut across all groups. We sent invitations to as many secular artists as possible. We are not a religious party or sect, everyone is allowed to come, that is why we chose a rave not a worship seminar or conference or crusade. What we are having is a party. The culture in Uganda is to love quietly but ‘Love Loud Rave’ comes from the bible, John 3: 16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his only son – His love was so loud for you and me – that is where love loud comes from. It has a lot to do with the message, what God did for us,” the Organizers said.
