Earlier today, at the @comedystoreug Fundraising Concert announcement press conference. We're hosting a concert with @diamondplatnumz as the headlining act to help us collect money towards expanding the Comedy Store Foundation's operations. Diamond Platinum from Tanzania and Nameless from Kenya are scheduled to appear at a Comedy Store Fundraising concert in Kampala in July. The Comedy Store Foundation's programs will benefit from the proceeds of the event, which will be held on July 14 at the Kololo ceremonial grounds. Three initiatives are carried out by the Comedy Store Foundation: the Comedy Store Auditions, the Annual Home of Hope Charity Football Match, and the Youth Training & Mentorship Program. The monthly Comedy Store Auditions Program aims to train and develop the next wave of comics. . The program has already attracted more than 300 aspiring comic book creators, and there will be more. Young kids receive crucial life skills mentorship from the Youth Training & Mentorship Program. Spice Diana, King Saha, Winnie Nwagi, Ray G, Alien Skin, Karole Kasita, Naava Grey, Zex Bilangilangi, Daddy Andre, Abeeka Band, Eezzy, Figo West, and more great musicians will perform at the charity event.
A number of other comics, including MC Mariachi, Madrat & Chiko, Mualana and Reign, Teacher Mpamire, Merry Heart, Sammy, and Sahwa, will also perform on stage to amuse the crowd.
The Comedy Store Foundation's efforts should be expanded outside Kampala to help the entire country of Uganda, according to Alex Muhangi, the company's creator.
The concert's proceeds will go toward this expansion, allowing the foundation to reach more kids and have a bigger impact.
Ken Kemba, who oversees the Youth Training & Mentorship Program, underlined the value of teaching young pupils important life skills through mentoring. By successfully educating over 80 students through initiatives like the Makerere University pre-entry training for the law, the program has already achieved progress. These initiatives may continue to empower and uplift the youth, cultivating talent and provide possibilities for growth, with the help of the general public and those who attended the Comedy Store Fundraising event.
The cost of tickets for the event ranges from Shs70k to Shs3m and can be purchased at www.ticketsasa.com.
