Congolese singer Fally Ipupa has explained why he failed to perform in Uganda at a previously booked show.
Fally Ipupa’s Sheraton Kampala VIP show marked his last performance in Uganda and East Africa in general.
The Congolese crooner touched down the +256 on Thursday last week and performed at his “Dance Moves With Ipupa” concerts on the 29th and 1st of September in Arua and Kampala respectively.
However, Fally’s coming to Uganda was surrounded by controversy, as events promoting company 243 Events accused him of snubbing their 2019 show despite pocketing an upfront payment of £85,000 and an additional £10,000.
Based on the legal documents cited by this website, 243 Events claimed that they were assured of a refund but Fally Ipupa’s management made empty promises to the current date.
Midway through his performance at Sheraton, Fally revealed that despite his unparalleled desire to perform in Uganda for a while, the promoters that booked him made this unachievable as they failed to meet his performance minimum requirements.
Fally Ipupa went on to thank Malemba Lifestyle, for their professionalism in the events management business, and for making his dream come true of performing in Uganda before vowing to annually perform in the country.
