"It will be more than just a show," said Ampurire, adding that Stress Clinic won't just stop at entertainment but it will be a platform to create jobs through people that will be hired to perform and those offering services.

For the first edition, the performers include Madoxx Ssemanda Sematimba, Keko, Winnie Nwagi, Bizonto, Agnes Akite, Sammy and Shawa, Madrat & Chiko, Maulana & Reign and Merry Hearts.

DJ Nimrod and DJ Niyo will set the tone for the event alongside Yeffe Band.

At the first edition of Stress Clinic, the audience will participate in choosing the best two, and the grand finale where the winner will be announced, will be the next edition of the Clinic in December.

At that edition, Sheebah Karungi will perform.

"It is a great platform for up and coming artistes," Keko hailed Stress Clinic, adding: "I'm glad to support platforms showcasing new."
