The new month of November was welcomed in style in Gulu town on Saturday, as party goers made their way to Pier A2 discotheque to catch a glimpse of Uganda’s acclaimed dancehall stars Peter Miles and Menshan.

Despite the power blackout, young and old revellers proved Gulu was not a sleeping ‘city’ as they thronged the dark streets in great numbers to attend the ‘Frontline Concert’.

The concert began at 10.30pm, with curtain raisers performing some of the duo’s tunes. Melisa, Loopy Dee, Capital Cool, Raymond and LMG, curtained raised and worked out the cheerful revellers in the early hours of the night.
Mc Kash Owakabi and Mc Emma kept the fans giggling throughout the night with their comical jokes.

At mid night, Peter Kanyike, aka Peter Miles, accompanied by Menshan, stepped on stage and unleashed their favourite dancehall hits that drove revellers into a jovial mood.

Revellers ululated and screamed to the top of their voices as the duo unleashed lyrics from their old hits, One Time, Wangamba Ojja, Combination, Ooh Ahh, Nsaba Nkusaleko and Ruckus, among others.

The two times PAM Awards best reggae star Peter Miles further threw fans into party mood as he wrapped up the night’s concert after an hour of energetic performance with his new truck, Blessing, in which he featured Jamaican artist Demarco, and his latest single, Frontline.

Unsatisfied fans could be heard yelling for more performance from the singing duo.
Miles applauded the fans for their consistency in supporting his music career. “Even at the peak of my career, Gulu fans have shown me massive support for any of my concerts in this region. This is a sign that we love our Ugandan musicians and Ugandan songs. I love you Gulu people, one love,” he said as he left the stage.
