Last Friday’s B2C live concert is one of the most successful this year. Concert promoters at Freedom City rated it as one that sold out.
Gates at this event were open by 3:30 p.m., and by 6:00 p.m., the ordinary section was already full. The concert kicked off with a curtain-raisers followed by the many musicians who came through to support the B2C solders
Artists like Levixon, Rema, Vinka, Kenzo, Lydia Jasmine, among others, staged remarkable performances that thrilled the music-lovers. But that night, trendy Tip Swizzy, topped all of them. He hit the stage at around 8:00 p.m., smartly dressed in a snappy-glitzy blue kitenge-like outfit – Made in China.
While performing his current trending song, Squat, Stand…Is an Optional Dance, things went wrong with his shorts as they ripped in the middle while he squatting: the pants could not resist the strong performance that Swizzy put up that night.
At first, Tip Swizzy did not realize what had going wrong with his pants. As the crowd cheered, he thought it was because he had staged a really good performance. But as the cheering persisted and since he had not been used to that kind of loud applause, he then realized that something else was happening.
On looking down, he saw that his pants were ripped beyond repair. This did not stop him from squatting and standing as his song says. Every time he squatted the crowd would burst into laughter, but Tip Swizzy just continued doing his thing.
Some people said that maybe that was a publicity stunt since Tip Swizzy is also planning a concert next year, but Bobby Lash of the B2C trio told The Sunrise’s Rafiki that Tip Swizzy could not use their stage for selfish reasons or a public stunt because he has been their friend for a good time and they have a collabo titled, African Beauty; and they also have another collabo that will be released earlier next month.
Despite that night’s drama that, Andrew Mugerwa a.k.a Andy Events Papa, the manager of B2C soldiers, is currently the richest manager in Uganda, depending on how the concert sold out. The 50 concert tables at one million shillings each sold out. The management added another 20 tables, and they, too, were sold out in less than a week. In just one week to the concert, all the concert tickets were sold out and those who paid late had to stand for lack of seats.
The B2C soldiers made their first appearance in a white outfit when the lights were off. The light producer made them look like they had just fallen off the stage. They got a five minutes standing ovation from their fans and later started off with their live performance with their club vibe, Tokigeza.
They performed all their songs from their Born to Conquer album and their current songs like; Ontagaza, Wanyonoona, Sukuma, among others, during the show. They also gave a five-minute tribute to the late Mowzey Radio, and their fallen solders like; Jennifer, when they sang songs, Nyenda Maaso and Kuku.
The concert closed with their best ever collabo of Gutamiiza. This made everyone stand up and sing along with them. They were later joined by Weasal representing the Gudlyf Crew.
The event was organized by Uganda’s finest concert organizers. Steve Jean of Fenon handled lighting and sound production while Coca Studio’s Bushington, was the General Producer. He also did the stage management; and Andy Events did the overall management.
