The event is dedicated to celebrating artists who possess extraordinary abilities to captivate audiences with their vocal prowess.

From the moment he stepped onto the stage at 1 am, Kayihura had the crowd spellbound.

His performance was a masterclass in live singing as he delivered some of his most-loved songs, such as Elevated, a collaboration with Ugandan star Azawi, Jaribu, My Only Baby, Kante, Tuza, and Anytime. Kayihura's connection with the crowd was undeniable.

All cameras and eyes were fixed on him, capturing every moment of his enchanting performance.

As he concluded his set, the lanky Rwandese star couldn’t hide his gratitude to his Ugandan fans; "Thank you all for coming out tonight. I have mad love for Uganda and hope you enjoyed the show."

His seamless interaction with the crowd and his ability to evoke strong emotions through his music made it clear why Nduguz Culture chose him to headline this special event.

"We traveled all the way to Rwanda to pick this gem because he is an amazing performer. We are here to celebrate culture, fashion, and people who appreciate the same kind of music," said Sammy Wetala, Director at Nduguz Culture.

"There is no better place to do it than at East Africa’s number one night spot, with the newest don in town, Don Julio.”

Although it’s been on the Ugandan market for just months, Don Julio Tequila has seamlessly integrated into Kampala's vibrant nightlife.

Its partnership with the Mics of Kla event not only highlighted the brand's commitment to celebrating music and culture but also reinforced its status as a premium choice for those seeking the signature Don Julio experience.

"Tonight is one of those nights that marks the beginning of many more amazing nights like this one. This is the right time to be in such spaces," said Simon Lapyem, the Brand Manager for Don Julio.

The Mics of Kla event kicked off on a high note and clearly set the bar for Nduguz Culture and Don Julio’s commitment to creating more unforgettable parties moving forward.
