The charity event, which is being organized by Comedy Store, will be held on July 14 at Kololo Airstrip in Kampala.
Comedy Store, a premier entertainment firm, in April 2022 launched an eponymously named foundation under which it runs three main projects.
Speaking to media on Monday, June 19, Comedy Store Chief Executive Alex Muhangi said the Foundation runs the Comedy Auditions Progam, through which they’ve nurtured over 300 budding comedians, including a household name like Maulana & Reign.
The duo participated in the first audition that was held in Bucket, a Kampala suburb.
Through the charity show, the Comedy Store Foundation eyes using part of the funds raised to boost this initiative so they can reach a wider pool of talent.
Muhangi also added saying at the conference, they are also looking to mentor dancers, singers, and other entertainers.
The Foundation also runs a program that focuses on mentoring young students in critical life skills. Through the Youth Training & Mentorship Program, they trained over 80 Makerere University Law Pre-entry students in analytical writing skills, effective communication, and general knowledge among others.
The Comedy Store Foundation also operates the annual Home of Hope Charity football match where proceeds support vulnerable communities. For instance, the latest, which was held in December 2022, brought together celebrities and over 100 vulnerable children at Katalemwa Chesire Home benefited.
Diamond Platunmz will share the stage with top entertainers, including Nameless, King Saha, Spice Diana, Zex Bilangilangi, Winnie Nwagi, Karole Kasita, Dady Andre, Abeka Band, Ray G, Alien Skin, Naava Grey and Brude Melode.
According to Alex Muhangi, Platnumz will arrive in Kampala on July 11.
