UGANDA: Lujang & Farouq to fire up ‘Lockdown’ this Friday
Acoustic guitar maestros Lujang and Farouq will Friday 27th July headline at the “Lockdown” getting underway at Makutano Carwash and Restaurant from 7pm to 10pm.
Lujang and Farouq started Acoustic gigs together 3 years ago of at olives restaurant Naguru of which people began to notice the magic they bring with just an acoustic guitar.
Two individuals with different musical personalities but when together they bring a crisp acoustic magic.
“Lockdown” is an artistic engagement in a public entertainment spot; bar, hotel, restaurant, sports grounds etc.
The events cause a lockdown with the engaging shows and thus the name Lock-down.
It is the brainchild of Mavuno Church and they hope to provide alternative entertainment with a positive message.
It is fun, it is authentic and the message is empowering, yet delivered in a refreshingly new way! And that’s what the church should be known for – messages stirring up positive life change.
It showcases artists both local and international. Last year, it hosted Oliver Mtukudzi- Zimbabwe, Pompi – Zambia and Kanjii- Kenya to partner with home talents Naava, Pablo and Anne Kansiime.
Pastor Carol Ekinu, told edge.ug that their motivation is anchored by rich content.
“We have been going at it since 2012. In the past we have hosted talents like A-Star, Bupeh, Ruyonga, Levixone, Exodus, Righa, Kanjii, Noel Nderitu.”
The show targets the young adults, University students, corporates, fun-lovers, entertainment market place icons etc.
It is an interactive platform for networking and an opportunity for the church to have an experiential affair with the entertainment industry and their fans, Ekinu explained.
“We are celebrating the 1st anniversary of Mavuno church in Kabalagala. The 360 church was planted July of 2017 and what better way than to party with our community outside of our address, at Tirupati Mall – former Club Venom.”
Pastor Ekinu hopes to have fun and mingle with the revellers of Makutano, who happen to be neighbours, landlords, tenants, friends, workmates, classmates etc.
“Our intention is to break the stereotype of church stationed in a particular space. Church is not a building, but it is you and I. And well, God is in the bar too!” she added.
