Ugandan R&B lovers were treated to an unforgettable evening on Saturday at Lugogo Cricket Oval as American star, Mya graced the stage at the Johnnie Walker All Music Safari.
Those who were in their teens in the late 90s and early 2000s had made their way to the concert brimming with expectation. Their younger compatriots, perhaps not entirely sure what the fuss was all about, soon got their answer. And it came in the shape of Mýa’s absolutely stunning performance.
The American star was the main act at this year’s Johnnie Walker All Music Safari, a grand celebration that doubled as the 30th anniversary for veteran music promoter Tshaka Mayanja, the man behind the Jazz and Soul Safaris. If this was a tribute, it couldn’t have been more fitting.
Mýa wowed and dazzled. She excited and captivated. It was the beauty and purity of 2000s R&B music all over again, this time finding a welcoming audience at the Cricket Oval. The approval of the American star’s performance was a story clearly told by the radiance of the ecstatic fans’ faces.
Many had promptly slipped into sing-along mode as she belted some of her most memorable hits, including Case of the Ex, Best of Me and Ghetto Superstar.
On a night when local acts like Kenneth Mugabi, Kaz Kasozi, Myko Ouma, Joseph Sax were afforded the honour of sharing a stage with Mya, there was no question who it was that had stolen show-goers’ hearts. This was a night that belonged to Mýa. The moment for a true musical icon.
