Winnie Nwagi steps on $531 flight to Buganda Convention after cancel scare
Winnie Nwagi has boarded the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to Seattle, Washington, United States after she posted about the show being cancelled. In the now-deleted Instagram post, Nwagi said "Am so sorry my USA fans...I CANNOT MAKE IT...Am so sad rn...#Canceled." The singer is now aboard the flight headed for the scheduled "Buganda Bumu North America Convention" (BBNAC 2023) starting Friday 26, 2023 until Monday 29, 2023.
The singer is using the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines which is running ticket prices starting at $531 for the month of May for economy class.
The BBNAC'23 is a celebration of Buganda culture and heritage while experiencing one of America’s most electrifying cities in America. This year's theme is "The Challenge of Adequate Clean Water in Buganda and Finding Solutions" (Okusoomoozebwa kw’ebbula ly’Amazzi Amayonjo mu Buganda n’Okutema Empenda Okukwaŋŋanga).
According to the BBNAC official page, "This theme is an opportunity for us to discuss important issues pertinent to the continued building and strengthening of Buganda Kingdom, such as ensuring that all Ssaabasajja Kabaka’s subjects have access to adequate clean water for sustainable livelihoods."
The convention will offer a platform to engage children, youth and young adults about issues affecting them, as well as to discuss social and economic issues of their well-being in the diaspora, and back home in Uganda.
Tickets for the convention are being sold in three parts. A boat cruise going for $175, a hotel room reservation at Hyatt Regency Lake Washington, and a hotel room reservation at the Hampton Inn and Suites Seattle/Renton.
