When Nigerian born international gospel singer-songwriter, recording and performing artiste Ada Ehi arrived in Uganda to a warm reception, she promised a warmer performance.
Promising and delivering are two different things. On Friday evening at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds, she lived up to her promise after she performed for a record crowd.
Truth be told, her music is so powerful, it acts as a cool mist during a sweltering day. Dressed in a trendy outfit, she delivered a powerful performance. It was a message of glad tidings that even the ‘stubborn’ and argumentative Minister for ICT and National Guidance, Chris Baryomunsi turned mellow when he made it on stage to dance.
With a secular show featuring Jamaican dancehall star just a sniff away at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, there had been debate on which concert would pull it off. Ada’s concert won this battle of numbers.
Her fans, mostly female, started filing in as early as 4pm. By dusk there was a sea of expectant fans. They warmed up to performances from Levixone, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Exodus, Gabbie Ntate and by the time Ada made it on stage, many were confessing how Church had won them over.
Ada has collaborated with several artistes, including Nigerians Nathaniel Bassey, Sinach, Samsung and Eben.
Her other songs include I Testify, Cheta, Jesus (You are Able), I Overcame, Fix My Eyes On You featuring Sinach and Open Door were cheered most.
