The event was hosted by KFM’s Maliaka Nyanzi, David Kazoora, Robin Kisiti, Sophie Tattu and Nancy Mugga.
Also notably present were; Miss Uganda CEO Brenda Nanyonjo, Miss Uganda Leah Kagasa. Uganda’s US based model Amiito Stacey Lagum and former Miss Kenya Idah Nguma.
The purely Ugandan annual event was organized by Ugandans in North America under their umbrella UNAA Causes. The next Festival is scheduled to take place in USA’s capital, Washington DC, from August 30 2018 to September 3.
“UNAA Causes wants to thank all those that participated in the very successful Las Vegas Festival and we are looking forward to an exciting event in Washington DC. The Uganda Festival in DC will feature more live music and other exciting details,” a statement from the organisers reads.
