The Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II advised youths to work hard and get rid of poverty in 2015. The monarch was addressing mammoth crowds that turned up for the annual Enkuuka Y’Omwaka (end of year fete) organised by Buganda Kingdom owned CBS FM, on New Year’s Eve. The Kabaka said that the betting industry, that has become a pastime of several youth around the country should be regulated.

Singer Moses Ssali, aka Bebe Cool reechoed the Kabaka’s message, urging people to work hard in this New Year so that they can improve on their standards of living.

Referring to his song, Ntuyo Zange, Bebe Cool bragged that he beat all musicians last year because he works tirelessly. “No one can deny. This year (2014), I have beaten everyone in the music industry. This is because I work day and night. You should also work hard in 2015,” he said.

For the 40 minutes he spent on stage, his fans were not left complaining. The self proclaimed Big Size sang songs such as Nkwagala, Coccidiosis and climaxed with his current popular song titled Love You Everyday.

At 10pm, the self-branded music doctor Jose Chameleone stepped on stage with his Leone Island Crew. He performed songs like Owakabi, Badilisha, Gimme Gimme, and duets he did with Weasel, Melody and Papa Cidy. The Leone Island boss climaxed his performance with his latest release Wale Wale, a song that sent revellers into madness.

The merrymakers were also entertained by musicians like Mathias Walukaga, Kazibwe Kapo, Maro, Irene Namatovu, Stabua Natooro, David Lutalo, Judith Babirye, Chris Evans, Haruna Mubiru and Geoffrey Lutaaya among other musicians. The partygoers, mainly youths and teenagers danced till morning.
