Partying in Uganda is continually evolving amid the current pandemic. Whereas Ugandans might still have limited access to events and partying hotspots around the country, clubs and concerts, this has not stopped them from finding a creative way to get a feel of the experience, taking the fun to their homes and still have a good time.
Revelers are in high spirits for the upcoming Blankets and Wine virtual edition powered by Roke Telkom slated for 30th August 2020, which will be graced by Nigerian artiste Joe Boy, who will have party-loving Ugandans merry make to his hit songs such as ‘Beginning’, ‘Call’, ‘All for you’, ‘No love’ among others.
The House of Deejay’s new experience will be brought to life through partners like Roke Telkom whose internet will be used to stream the event live.
The internet provider revealed that it will be sponsoring the 2020 Blankets & Wine virtual edition. “We are excited to take part in this year’s Blankets and Wine edition, given that it is going to be the first of its kind virtual edition form outdoor setting that people were used to,” noted Michelle Baine, Brand Manager, Roke Telkom.
“As an ISP, Roke Telkom is keen on offering our customers and Ugandans the best internet experience as they enjoy this year’s Blankets and Wine edition,” remarked Baine, adding that, “With our Roke Plus home internet package, event guests that have subscribed for the service are guaranteed of an uninterrupted internet connection that is free all-weekend from Friday 7.00pm to Monday 7.00am”
Besides Joe Boy’s performance that is set to bring 100% authentic rhythm to an epic online edition, where fans will get to groove and chill with the star in the comfort of their homes, merrymakers will also get a chance to enjoy the music playlists prepared by the finest DJs in Kampala and local star artists including Vinka, Kenneth Mugabi among others.
We definitely can’t wait for the outcome of this event, but all we know is the party never stops, not even under the pandemic. Needless to say, #StaySafe!
