Makerere University was never ready for what hit Law school. 3rd March was the 3rd edition of ‘Nguvu Poetry’ which was themed mental health under Project Happiness by Stand up – Shout out Makerere Division.
At exactly 7pm on Sunday, the Law school theatre was saturated by flashy ladies and the alpha males around campus. There was well crafted poetry session in both Luganda and English that preached the importance of mental health from very many perspectives.
From a priest confessing his daily temptations to serial killers and psychos,to the guy that found “another one”. Allan the poetic dancer graced the stage with four smooth ladies that took the crowd from contemporary dance to lingala as well as doing something with their waists to Burna boy music.
The audience was the best part of the show as it felt the quality of the music system first hand and applauded every performer with energy and ululations. All the performances on the night were by students for students.
To drive the message of mental health home, the students benefitted from an inspirational speech from Sarah who has suffered from multiple mental disorders before. She emphasized that “it’s okay not to be okay and it’s okay to ask for help”. That asking for help is not a sign of weakness because a small issue can aggravate into a fatal condition.
Have you ever seen Eminem and Jessie J in the same building? Well, the lively and eager crowd had a live original rap composition from Emuron a first year Law School President and Shivan a leadership aspirant that did her thing to flash lights by Jessie J.
Even though it is legal to miss such lovely treats of entertainment, it might not be good for your mental health in the long run!!!
What will the SUSO Makerere Division do next? I can’t wait.
