As the world marked World Aids Day at the beginning of December, Reach A Hand Uganda (RAHU), a youth empowerment organisation, delivered the message to the youth through the #iknowHIV concert that was held at Cayenne Restaurant and Longue in Bukoto.
The day began with free HIV counseling and testing as well as distribution of condoms.
Gilbert Beyamba RAHU’s chief of staff challenged youth to avoid diving in live for gratification but wear it for safety.
All the day’s messages were extracted from the international theme getting zero-zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS related death.
The merry makers were treated to lots of entertainment from comedians and celebrated local musicians.
Comedians Prince Emma aka Napoleon, Van Muk and Ronnie Mac Vex put up an outstanding performance as they acted about their childhood and school time experience.
Van Muk narrated how his father told them that the easiest way of locating the taxi parks was by following the crowds. His brother used the trick and he successfully reached the taxi park, but when he tried it too, he found himself at Kololo Independence Grounds because it was MTN marathon day.
Prince Emma joked about his dark skin that when holds babies in his hands they immediately go asleep thinking its night hours.
Musicians Navio and Allan Tonicks set the house on fire with their great performance.
The excited youths sung along, shook and pulled out phones to record the performances.
The concert was also graced by East Africa’s RnB and Hip Hop music group Swahili Nation together with other celebrated Ugandan musicians and RAHU cultural icons including Maurice Hasa, Van Data, Jody Phibi, and many more, who endorsed the campaign. The dwellers leaved at leisure.
