The people at the Blankets and Wine Uganda franchise have not been much loaded for 2 years, but that all changed in the last few days because we’ve learned they’ve finally got the sponsorship of their lives from Tusker Malt Lager.
TML the lead sponsor for the region’s premier music experience has announced it has reaffirmed its support by extending its title sponsorship into the 13th edition of Blankets and Wine.
As we reported, the upcoming edition will take place on 10th July, 2016 at its proverbial home, the Uganda Museum grounds.
Sources connected to Alex Tusingwire the Tusker Malt Lager Brand Manager tell us much of the improved commitment is because their consumers get an opportunity to discover the best Afro-music acts that the continent has got to offer and Blankets and Wine offers the perfect platform for that.
“Tusker Malt Lager is proud to be title sponsor of the biggest musical experience on the Uganda social calendar,” Tusingwire said at the Ekombe Villas during a press conference.
In a press conference held at the Ekombe Villas, Kampala, the Tusker Malt Lager Brand Manager, Mr. Alex Tusingwire said that the partnership Tusker Malt Lager enjoys with Blankets and Wine is strong and continues to grow with each passing edition. “Tusker Malt Lager is proud to be title sponsor of the biggest musical experience on the Uganda social calendar. We are keen on giving our,” he said.
Never one to miss a chance to promote — James Byaruhanga one of the organisers praised Tusker Malt Lager’s unwavering support for the reason why Blankets and Wine is what it is today.
Byaruhanga added, “We have and continue to enjoy our relationship with them. Each passing Blankets and Wine experience gets bigger and better and this coming one is set to be the biggest yet.
A special line up has been set up for the 13th Edition: Uganda’s top multi-talented female sensation Mo-Roots, top saxophonist Kirya Kuti, Tusker Project Fame 4 winner Davis Ntare, multilingual songbird, Jackie Akello and the headline act, Mi Casa from South Africa all for just 100,000 UGX entrance fee.
We’re told in line with its support for responsible drinking, Tusker Malt Lager will be maintaining a strict ‘over 18 only’ policy for sale of alcohol.
