Celebrated Congolese artist Fally Ipupa has arrived in Uganda to perform at two concerts this weekend. He landed at Entebbe International Airport on Thursday night with a sizable entourage.
Fally Ipupa, who initially gained fame as one of Koffi Olomide’s backup singers, held an exclusive press conference at the International University of East Africa. He expressed his excitement about being in Uganda and promised to give his fans the best performances at the Greenlight Stadium in Arua and the Sheraton Gardens in Kampala on Sunday, October 1st.
Known for his ability to attract large crowds and deliver outstanding performances, Fally is expected to continue this trend in Arua tonight when he takes the stage.
Tickets for the concerts are priced at Shs 50k (General), Shs 200k (VIP), and Shs 4m for a table, and they are available at various locations including Le Tsuba Hotel, DonPetrol Station, Urban Boutique, 2ambe Sports Arena, and Bamboo Village.
Fally will return to Kampala for one final performance at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel on Sunday, with tickets priced at Shs 150k (general), Shs 350k (VIP), and Shs 6m for a table of eight.
I&M Bank Uganda is one of the lead sponsors of the Fally Ipupa Live concerts in Uganda, offering special experiences for their customers, especially in Arua. Other sponsors include Castle Lite, Sheraton Kampala Hotel, NBS TV, Fenon Events, Children of Uganda, Madmad, and Pearl Rides.
In Arua, the excitement is palpable as Fally’s songs have been playing across all radio stations, and businesses like movie selling spots, salons, and video halls have been echoing with his music. The Lingala and Rumba genres are deeply ingrained in the culture of Arua, likely due to its proximity to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
