There is no doubt that the annual Nile Special USPA gala is the biggest sports and social event in Uganda. In keeping up with the tradition of the glamour associated with the event, two top artistes will entertain the 500 guests that will attend the ceremony at Imperial Royale Hotel tomorrow (Friday 14th July 2017).

Irene Ntale who has done a number of chart toppers like ‘Sembera’ and ‘Gyobela’ will be the main act while Geo Steady will treat guests to his ‘Owooma’ hit among others. The entertainment will be supplement by the spinning skills of award winning DJ Apeman. As usual we will have the best sound and lighting in the country provided by Fenon under perfectionist Steve Jean.
