To her surprise, the well advertised concert had empty seats with close to 20 revellers three hours from the time the show was to kick off. At 10pm, the time being proposed by the KCCA Executive Director Jenipher Musisi that all night concerts should end is when the Afrigo band started entertaining the few guests. It's at this point that they were told to take up the seats that had been reserved for the VIP's.
Artistes like Mega Dee, Jamal Waswa, Sophie Gombya, Angella Katatumba and Annette Nandujja performed at this concert that was dedicated to Fistula infected women in Uganda.
At midnight, the veteran singer hit the stage walking like she did on the catwalk during the Mrs World pageant in 2010. She played songs like 'Africa Yetu', 'Ekyoyoyo' and 'Ndimuzadde' among others.
She used the event to launch her magazine 'Women at Work' that was auctioned at over Shs4m.
