Gabriel, who says he does music as a hobby has two albums with a total of 34 songs that include 18 professionally done videos, he performed some of the songs last evening.
"What I’ve achieved in the last two years of dedicated music work has been two albums to show - ‘done waiting’ and ‘love ocean’. These two have a combined song count of 34 and of these, 18 are professionally produced videos (another 3 videos will be out by end year)."
Gabriel K dedicated the show to his lovely children Aaron, Abby and Myra and all those who have been by his side all the years.
The sound was good and so was the lighting and the patrons took to the front row seats in the comfort of their living rooms as they enjoyed GK's smooth ballads.
Give Me The Love, We just want love, and Dance With Me were some of the songs that he played. He also did a bit of reggae. GK's songs were a mixture of Swahili, English and Luganda clearly taking care of as many fans as possible.
Bushingtone was behind the whole concept that was directed by Myco Ouma. Cathy Patra did the choreography and the four dancers who backed him up were Amandu Hope, Wanyenze Joldine, Kemigisha Rinah and Anena Sonia Oloya.

Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye - "I have debts that have made me lose a lot of weight and at this rate, I could die easily. It is not my way of doing things to come out and air out my problems in public, but I've been pushed to the wall. I had bought a house at 400Million, but I have to date been able to pay only 60M..."
