“Indeed this is a century wedding…..get ready for SK Mbuga’s kasiki tonight at Club Guvnor again. All are welcome. You don’t need any invitation card. Just dress smartly and boom, you are in. There is gonna open bar tonight. I repeat, entrance is just by dress code. Bring friends of your friends,” Henry Ndugwa popularly known Kakensa wrote on social media on Tuesday.
Ndugwa aka Kakensa has been behind the publicity for the much hyped wedding of city socialite SK Mbuga and a one Vivian.
And who would look back after hearing entrance to one of the city’s premium club is free in addition to free drinks of your choice? Our guess is as good as yours; people thronged the venue as early as 7pm and by 10pm, the number of people in the club had swollen.
However, things didn’t work in favour of the revellers; getting a drink in the club was in direct contrast to what they had been told. There was no open bar as earlier communicated as each individual had to pay for one’s drink.
If you are not a foreigner, you obviously know how the economy is fairing at the moment. Majority of the people are broke and so were majority of those who had turned up for free drinks.
Majority turned to their phones, literally ‘drinking’ mbs (internet bundles) with hope an ‘open bar’ was to open as soon as the ‘big’ man arrived.
Some took to social media to air out their plight.
Kaj Stella: Oba I’m at a wrong Guvnor. There is no open bar here…
Their wish, though, didn’t materialise and one by one, they started vacating the spot in disappointment and while cursing the socialite.
Mbuga’s wedding alleged to cost over Shs3 billion is scheduled for this Saturday.
