Kampala.
Jamaican legendary singers Shaggy and Patra will on September 20 perform at Namboole Stadium in a concert dubbed the Club Mega Fest.
The concert to be headlined by Shaggy, will also feature two African acts; Mafikizolo (South Africa) and Burnaboy (Nigeria), as well as a bevy of leading Ugandan artistes.

Patra is a Jamaican dancehall artiste who started her music journey in the 1980s. Her discography boasts of a number of famous dancehall songs like Worker man, Romantic call and Pull up to the bumper, among others.

She was popular for her trademark short jeans.
Shaggy on the other hand needs no introduction to Ugandans as he has been here more than four times.
He is a versatile singer with the ability to release songs that appeal to every generation. Shaggy 46, last visited Uganda in 2008 and unlike Patra, he is still musically active and keeps releasing new hit songs every year.

Club Pilsner brand manager, Samuel Hooper, said at a press briefing in Kampala yesterday that the choice of artistes was informed by the brand’s need to ensure that everyone’s interests are catered for.
