The International University of East Africa (IUEA) has confirmed that famous Nigerian artist Adekunle Gold will be visiting its campus in Kansanga this Friday, July 15th.
This year, Club dome announced that Adekunle Gold and South Africa’s Costa Titch would be headlining their 2022 “futuristic” return after the two-year Covid-19 hiatus.
Club also confirmed that they would be taking the event to different regions of Uganda as it did before, targeting campusers and young millennials in tertiary institutions and various universities in Uganda.
Since IUEA is among the official sponsors of the highly anticipated event, its students are set to have a light family moment with the Nigerian superstar, Adekunle Gold, ahead of his live-in Uganda concert scheduled to take place at Lugogo Cricket Oval on Saturday, July 16th, 2022.
Adekunle Gold will also tour the beautiful IUEA campus before gracing the campus auditorium stage that already awaits him.
Having four albums in his pocket, the 35-year-old Adekunle Gold (AG Baby) has been a major influential music artist in Nigeria and across Africa for various hit singles, the most recent being Sinner, Okay, It is what it is, and Something Different.
IUEA students and neighboring campusers, on the other hand, can’t wait to welcome Adekunle Gold.
IUEA guild president Mr Mubembe Nathan and his cabinet say they are equally excited “As the guild, this show means a lot to us. We are an international university with different cultures, which I believe is a vital resource for learning and exchanging cultures with each other. No one should miss this show,” Mr Mubembe said.
