HOUSE COMES DOWN FOR TPF WINNER DAVIS IN UGANDA
It was a night to remember for Davis Ntare, the Tusker Project Fame Season 4 winner as he received a huge welcome at his homecoming party at Club Silk last weekend. The over 500 guests that consisted of Ugandan celebrities, family, friends and fans gave him a standing ovation as he walked into the club as the screens around the club played the video Am A Winner that features all the TPF4 contestants.
Caught by surprise over the huge reception, Davis nearly came to tears, but he quickly gained his composure and begun a victory dance with family members and friends who turned up in huge numbers to share in his victory.
Renowned Ugandan artist Coco Finger kicked off the performances with his two popular hits, Mikono Wagulu and My Miss.
Davis then took to the stage to thank his fans. He was joined by his family to cut a cake that he shared with all the guests who turned up. Playing the perfect host, Davis Ntare walked around the club serving his guests. Minutes later, he performed his song Yegwe and Shake A Shake.
Davis thanked all his fans but most importantly East African Breweries for creating Tusker Project Fame. “I thank EABL for devoting their time and resources to developing music talent,” he said.
Bebe Cool, one of Uganda’s finest artists crowned the night with his big hits, Bogola Kko and Kasepiki. Just before he left the stage, he volunteered some words of wisdom. “There are two things involved in becoming a good artist. You have to work hard and sing from your heart. Don’t let anyone bring you down,” he advised.
Davis’ story is one of perseverance and determination as he was sent back home during TPF 3’s gala show. He auditioned for a second time at the beginning of this season in Uganda and Kenya.
He finally made it into the Academy and was so overwhelmed with emotion during this year’s opening gala night that he took to his knees in gratitude. That determination paid off when he was crowned the winner on Sunday December 5, 2010.
Davis’ win crowned eight weeks of high-octane entertainment that was filled with surprises, twists and best of all, talent.
