As the Easter weekend draws closer, all annual events that happen around that time are up in gears in preparation. Most events are themed around hangouts and bars but we noticed one that is themed around something else; Youths and High Schools.
An initiative of Abdalla Zein of ZeinSoft Sounds and local council representative of Maggwa Parish, Rising Stars is back in its 4th Edition in the same venue and with the same target audience as always. Rising Stars is a youth talent showcase event that gives youths in high school a chance to come out and showcase what they can do.
The talent categories we were able to look at include miming, dance, singing, comedy and freestyle acts. All these are to be participated in by over 10 schools from around Jinja Town including Jinja SSS, St. James, St. Peters, PMM Girls School, Jinja Modern Secondary, JIPRA, Kiira College Butiki, Jinja College, Wairaka, among others.
“We are back gain this year and like every year, we want to be better than previous editions. ZeinSoft also acquired new equipment and we will use it as a chance to showcase it. We will be at Town Hall on Good Friday (April 14th) and we will be starting at 8am. Students have to part with just 3K” said Abdalla Zein in an interview with our scribe.
