Events promoter Balaam Barugahara has revealed that he will not let any person or artist who is not vaccinated to attend his concerts or perform on any of his concerts.
Balaam made this statement while having an interview with NTV Uganda after President Museveni officially opening up the night economy like bars, clubs and live concerts.
According to Balaam, the entertainment industry has been under lockdown for full two years and people especially business men have made so many losses therefore people should respect the fact that covid19 is still in existence.
Being an event promoter, Balaam called on all other events promoters like Abitex and Bajjo to also ask for vaccination cards to people who will attend their concerts so that Uganda doesn’t go to lockdown again.
“People who are not vaccinated will not attend my concerts. Everyone even artists will show the vaccination cards before they go on stage. We suffered a lot during lockdown, we don’t want to go back to the lockdown. Other events promoters should also be vigilant and mind about the health of all Ugandans.” Balaam said
Balaam said he doesn’t think asking for vaccination cards will stop Ugandans from attending his concerts because they all want to be safe.
