“I want to thank all our partners and the two gentlemen who have stood their ground to make an important statement about HIV stigma in this generation. We are all aware that HIV is still prevalent, and the fight is still ongoing. It is an honor to support an initiative of this kind championed by our talent. “King of the Mic” demystifies how we communicate this kind of information to young people – we believe that the 2030 vision to end HIV is alive. We are very committed to helping amplify the awareness about HIV in Uganda,” Kigozisaid.

The Theme is “The Journey to End AIDS by 2030″

“I faced and digested it, but I have a support system that has helped me through this journey. I hope I inspire someone out there to live life and work on their dreams. Taking your meds is the way to go. I pray this goes on beyond just the concert.”
