There are currently two groups of musicians that are fighting for this money in the industry. One is Eddy Kenzo under the Uganda National Musicians Federation (UNMF) and the other is Cindy Sanyu under the Uganda Musicians Association (UMA).
Kenzo has been actively pushing for this money, even though his federation only came into existence a few months ago.
The singer even recently met President Museveni. He said they talked about the industry and he can’t wait for other artists under his federation to meet him too.
Some artistes are not happy with Kenzo saying he is just targeting the government money. According to Eddie Sendi, if the money is released to artists, he wants it to be utilized very well.
He also said he would want the money to go to where everyone in the industry benefits. Not to those who want the money to benefit themselves.
“When the money comes, I want it to go where it will help everyone. When the 18B comes out and goes to the arts industry and any of the groups, trust me, it will be spent and won’t help the ecosystem,” he said.
