The Big Wedding 2017 edition has officially been launched. While speaking at a press briefing George Manyali the programs director of Capital FM Uganda said that couples can now send in their letter entries through emails and through direct letters to the Station.
Manyali said that the Big wedding is aimed at giving back to the Capital FM listeners who have continuously made Capital FM the number one station of choice.
A wedding that will cost not less than one hundred fifty million Ugandan shillings will be all expenses paid. “All we require from the couple is for them to be traditionally married and be voted the best in the letter contest.” Said Manyali.
The coordinator and show host of Big breakfast , Marcus Kwikiriza in the same meeting added that every year, they strive to make it bigger and better. “This year we plan to have something for each and every couple that will make it to the top five since we are making five years in this promotion.” said Marcus.
