The 17th edition of the Tusker Malt Lager sponsored and House of Deejays organized Blankets and Wine Kampala was one to remember as revelers turned out in numbers to grace the most sought after event on Uganda’s social scene calendar.

DJ Rachel set the day’s funfair rolling with her mixes and later revelers were treated to performances from rising stars Pelindah, Joash, Essie, Apio Moro and Byg Ben who had the crowd dancing to some afro-fusion music in the afternoon.
As the night fell, Daniel Lemma and Hot this Year took to stage and performed some of their big hit songs such as; Call you, Still water, Mr. Hibbert, among others.
By the time Afrigo Band took to stage, revelers were in anticipation for yet another memorable experience as they sang and danced to the band’s timeless hits such as; Olundelebu, Okwagalana kwaffe, Ekitobero, Mundeke, Nantongo.
Tusker Malt Lager treated revelers to their pitchers of Draught beer as they enjoyed a memorable music experience.
Kenya’s Muthoni the Drummer Queen later came to stage to an already psyched up crowd and continued to fire it up with her hit songs such as; Squad up, Life, Make it right, and Turn on the lights where she featured Uganda’s Hip Hop star The Myth.
When the day’s main act Cindy Sanyu came to the stage, she was welcomed to an enthusiastic crowd that went on to sing along to her songs. Cindy’s dance crew entertained the revelers with astonishing dance moves as fans pitched in to dance along.
