The Kyadondo show had about 8,000 tickets sold which by a Ugandan artiste standard was a success though it was not anywhere close to the Valu Valu numbers something that has left Chameleone laughing all the way.
Bebe Cool was still grateful for the big numbers and through his wall thanked the fans that turned up in large numbers. ''Thanks to you all for making my day great n I pray you get home safely. Thanks to Gagamel fans and friends for the great attendance n lets keep the fire burning."
The show was sponsored by Red Pepper, Hema Water and Balam Barugahare who gave an advance payment of Shs40m to Bebe Cool but having failed to recoup his monies, he is not sure of how to pay the remaining Shs20m. Balaam spent close to Shs150m in total but looking at the total proceeds from all the shows combined, he registered a loss.
During the show, Bebe Cool had a session that was dedicated to the kids from Kamuli that he is taking care of. He did a fundraising drive for them and realised about Shs500,000 which was handed over to the kids. Bebe Cool then challenged other artistes to do a similar act.
Some of the fans were left wondering why the kids were not in bed at that time. Bebe Cool was to perform 58 songs but by the time police came in to stop the show which was way past the stopping time, he was left with only two songs.
The Kyadondo show ended at 1:30am. Rain disrupted the Entebbe show while in Mukono about 2,200 tickets were sold.
