First time you hear Uganda Martyrs SS Namugongo, the ideas you get aren’t far from prayers and worship (also, that they should be having Leavers’ Prayers & Worship night instead of a leavers’ party) but hey, that’s the typical “expectation versus reality” situation that’ll blow that last chemistry topic off your head. In case you are wondering where I am drifting to, it is their prom that sent vibes to the furthest corners of Namugongo which days later still zoom echoes (we literally tried to turn down the volume on the stereo to smell the vibe, but who smells vibe?). On May 5, they had a programme line-up, as if to mock the just concluded Cannes Film Festival 2018, in France. They kicked off the day with high adrenaline – three segments, two red carpet seshes, one cocktail session, a live band, dates (unwritten prom rule, by the way) and food good enough to forget about the grub in dorm. So how did it unwind? The red carpet sesh was the opener where cameras blew the bulbs as the dudes and their dates shuffled hand-in hand finally unleashing the poses they had rehearsed since they first saw Hollywood stars pull them off on E! The second sesh had the couples sandwiched, as they line up for the cocktail that was indeed a cocktail of designs, styles and tastes, ending minutes away from exploding into a high end fashion show of sorts. Now, with things seemingly all going according to plan, how do you crown a prom? Lay down the red carpet for another project runway in completely new and fresh dashing outfits to complete the fantasy prom combo. Then a live band came through and clearly nobody could ask for more. It was obvious prom had just gotten martyred at Uganda Martyrs SS in Namugongo.
