first edition of Fantasy Music Concert for this Saturday | The new times
RENOWNED RWANDAN MUSIC GROUP, Symphony, is set to entertain music lovers in their first mega show titled “Fantasy Music Concert” which will take place at the Kigali Convention Center this Saturday.
The Fantasy Music concert is a show that will occur regularly according to Etienne Niyontezeho, the leader of Symphony Band.
In a previous interview with The New Times, Niyontezeho said that Symphony Band is looking forward to hosting more editions of this concert, starting with Ric Hassani through to the other artists who will be performing in future editions.
“This is the first of many concerts we hope to host. We assure Rwandans that we will invite more artists in future editions,” Niyontezeho said recently.
Apart from Nigerian star Ric Hassani, the show will also feature Rwandan musicians such as Mike Kayihure, Nel Ngabo, Confy, as well as Symphony Band.
The singer, whose real name is Eric Ikechukwu Ahiauzu, is expected by many music lovers for his performance, which he confirmed on all his social media platforms, where he also shared the track list of the songs he will perform.
The track list includes his greatest hits such as “Only You”, “Thunder You” and another song which he remixed with renowned Rwandan musicians Mike Kayihura dubbed as “My only baby”.
Ric Hassani also interacted with his fans on his Twitter account, where he described his musical journey and shared some of his songs to help his fans know more about him before attending his show.
Confy, a rising Rwandan artist who is also set to headline the show, said the concert was the right place to start the last month of the year in style.
“We have been making music for over two years. Let’s take advantage of this month of December to celebrate the Rwandan music industry which is developing at a good pace. Kigali Arena is the right place to be on December 4th. Come early and we’ll party like never before,” he said.
Confy also promised his fans to give his best performing hits such as “Igikwe”, “Panga” and “Pole Pole” which made him a household name in Rwanda.
Tickets for the event are available for early birds at Rwf15,000 for regulars, Rwf25,000 VIP and Rwf200,000 for a table of six with covid-19 testing included.
This is one of many shows scheduled for this weekend, including Koffe Olomide’s concert in Kigali.
However, show organizers and revelers alike were urged to be cautious as the world battles against the new Omicron variant.
