The Golden Jubilee Celebrations were held yesterday with several African Heads of State gracing the occasion.
Several artistes like Juliana, Jackie Chandiru, Pastor Wilson Bugembe entertained guests during the 50th Independence Anniversary celebrations. Interestingly, Lady Mariam with her 2008 'Tindatiine' hit was given a platform.
Esther Nabaasa and her team took their positions to perform the official jubilee song but but seconds after Esther had passed the mic to Ruyonga for the rap version of the Yoga Yoga song, they were asked to quickly leave the stage.
The program must have been running behind schedule bearing in mind that after the 'Yoga-Yoga' song, the President took to the podium to give his Golden Jubilee keynote address and by that time, some Presidents had actually left.
Richard Kaweesa who has been having issues with Esther over who owns what percentage of the proceeds from the song is now disturbed with how the official song could be cut half way and the Queen's official song sang twice.
Kaweesa wrote: "I was disturbed in my spirit as to why the African Children's Choir sang the Queen's official Jubilee song TWICE at the Uganda celebrations at Kololo yesterday. Then came in our Official Jubilee song 'Yoga-Yoga' which was cut half-way."
Juliana Kanyomozi one of the artistes who performed chipped in: "It was not only Yoga Yoga that was cut short. My I AM UGANDAN performance was also cut short because apparently a guest was arriving and they had to welcome them, can you imagine! I was only allowed to continue after that.."
