Trevor Kabugi, the owner and pioneer of Bugika Entertainment, has resorted to taking a time out from organising events to restructure and expand his company’s portfolio.

Speaking on The Base, Kabugi said he has taken the two month break to reorganise his company by opening a deejay academy, buy his own equipment and launch a Bugika club; all in a span of two years.

“I have taken a short break because I am restructuring. I have been branding myself for over four years and I will open a deejay academy in one year, buy my own equipment in six months since I have been outsourcing and open a club in two years,” he disclosed.

Kabugi--who began doing events in the year 2008 when he was still a university student pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Marketing—had his breakthrough when he organised a successful pool party at Maasai Lodge, after registering Bugika Entertainment.

The event later became a springboard that saw him plan events at the Secrets Lounge, Nairobi. Bugika Entertainment has been holding weekly events such as “Throwback Thursday” at Natives Club and “Bottoms up Party” at Otilas, both on Thika road.

“After registering Bugika Entertainment I approached the owner of Maasai Lodge and organised a wonderful pool party. I was later introduced to the manager of Secrets Lounge and from then on I began getting the passion of doing events,” he said.

He proudly wears different hats for he is also a marketing manager of a restaurant and a social media management consultant for different companies, insisting that Bugika is his side business.

The deft events hotshot counselled events prospects that: “It’s very stressful and you are going to lose friends. You need to plan yourself well and with patience you will go far.”
