Fally Ipupa touched down at Entebbe International Airport at approximately 10:30 pm on Thursday 28th night, accompanied by a sizable entourage. The double show organizers, Malembe Lifestyle, warmly welcomed the global superstar.
Fally Ipupa, who initially began his career as one of Koffi Olimidde’s backup singers, hosted an exclusive press conference at the International University of East Africa earlier Friday 29, September 2023 morning. Overflowing with excitement, he expressed his joy at finally being in Uganda and eagerly anticipated delivering an unforgettable performance tonight at the Greenlight Stadium in Arua, as well as at the Sheraton Gardens in Kampala on Sunday, October 1st.
Over the past two decades, Fally Ipupa has consistently drawn massive crowds to his shows and never failed to deliver an electrifying performance. The same level of excitement is expected in Arua tonight when he graces the stage.
Tickets for the event are priced at Shs 50k (General), Shs 200k (VIP), with table reservations available at Shs 4m. They can be purchased at various locations, including Le Tsuba Hotel, Don Petrol Station, Urban Boutique, 2ambe Sports Arena, and Bamboo Village. Fally Ipupa will return to Kampala for one final performance at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel on Sunday , October 2023, with tickets priced at Shs 150k (general), Shs 350k (VIP), and Shs 6m for a table of eight.
I&M Bank Uganda, a lead sponsor of the Fally Ipupa Live concerts in Uganda, has gone to great lengths to ensure that its customers, particularly in Arua, have an unforgettable experience. Racheal Kulanyi, the Communications and Outreach Programs Officer at I&M Bank Uganda, expressed their commitment to making this event special for their customers in Arua, where Lingala music holds great cultural significance.
Other sponsors contributing to the event’s success include Castle Lite, Sheraton Kampala Hotel, NBS TV, Fenon Events, Children of Uganda, Madmad, and Pearl Rides.
The atmosphere in Arua town is buzzing with excitement. Fally’s hit songs like “Un coup,” “Maria PM,” “Aime-moi,” “You The Best,” “Likolo,” “Eloko Oyo,” “Diamant,” and many more have been dominating the airwaves, and businesses across West Nile have been playing his music loudly in movie-selling spots, salons, and video halls.
The Lingala and Rumba genres have become an integral part of life in Arua, possibly due to its proximity to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
