Valery Okecho, the Manager Corporate Communications at MTN Uganda said that for the last twenty years, the telecom company has supported the music industry and continues to do so.

We shall not have not have curtain raisers that have been within for previous concerts. This time it is going to be only Jose Chameleon performing from as early as 8:15 pm till late “adds Balaam.
