Abhijeet Bhattacharya puts up a show at Plascon sponsored charity concert in Uganda

The Uganda Manufacturers Association (UMA) multipurpose hall was filled with excitement as hundreds of Indians from the Indian Community in Uganda and Ugandans came together for a remarkable evening of music and charity. The much-anticipated charity concert, headlined by the legendary Indian playback singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, was a resounding success.

Organized by the Bengali Association Uganda (BAUL) and generously sponsored by Plascon Uganda, the country’s leading paint manufacturer, this VIP event aimed to raise funds for constructing new classroom blocks at Kitante Primary School in Kampala. The concert exceeded all expectations, delivering stellar performances and generating substantial support for the cause.

The evening commenced with a heartfelt opening address by the Indian High Commissioner to Uganda, Mr. Upender Singh Rawat. His speech set the tone for the night, emphasizing the importance of community and charity. Following this, a captivating curtain-raiser performance by singer Debjani energized the crowd, setting the stage for the main act.

Daniel Kayongo, Brand Manager of Plascon Paints, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to supporting the Indian community in Uganda. “Plascon has a long history of backing Indian cultural events, including the annual Holi Festival, the Indian Independence day celebrations and the centenary celebration of the Indian Association in Uganda last year. We recognize and value the contributions of the Indian community to our nation and are proud to support this noble cause,” Kayongo stated.

Dressed in an elegant navy-blue ensemble, Abhijeet Bhattacharya graced the stage to thunderous applause shortly before 10 PM. His live performance was a nostalgic journey through his greatest hits, with the audience singing along and dancing to every tune. Abhijeet’s charismatic presence and engaging interaction, including a few humorous moments in Hindi, added a personal touch that endeared him to the crowd.

Midway through his set, fellow singer Joy, who sang a few of his songs before Abhijeet resumed his mesmerizing performance, got onto stage. The connection between the artists and the audience was great, creating an unforgettable experience for all.
