It has been quite a merry run in the fourth season of the Friday Night Lights.
And as the annual fun basketball tournament goes into its second-last Friday tonight at the YMCA grounds, the orgazisers have promised, “Major surprises for the fans.”
Kinetic Management CEO Cedric Babu told The Observer: “We are planning something that will thrill the fans because they’ve given us a lot of support.”
True, the fans have given a lot of support, showing up in big numbers every week, and the orgazisers are not disappointed. Fans have also walked away with plasma screen TVs, cash, basketballs and T-shirts.
On the entertainment front, they have kept the fans cheering. Okay, not all the time, because some performances were outright terrible. But they have had Jackie Chandiru, Bebe Cool, GNL, Ragga Dee, Rabadaba and Mun G. Dj Kream has also done an amazing job spinning the disks.
On the celebrity appearances, it hasn’t been the same hype as last year’s, when Miss Uganda. Sylvia Namutebi dropped the make-up and wigs for a pair of shorts and sneakers. Other appearances included motor-mouth Moses Golola and Club Guvnor boss Charlie Lubega.
On court, the intensity has been so up there, that the fans have complained about the tournament being too serious. But how can you blame the players when a winner walks away with Shs 400,000 cash for every game? The semi finals will see Team Ikong [two-time champions] battle it out with Team Sudi [still unbeaten], while Team Malinga [defending champions] take on Team Amoding for the final two slots.
Games kick off at exactly 7pm at the YMCA grounds this evening, with discounts on Castle Lite beer fans have to part with Shs 5,000 and Shs 20,000 for the VIP feel.
