Eddy Kenzo Confirms Receiving Money For Musicians Under UNMF

The Uganda National Musicians Federation (UNMF) president Eddy Kenzo has confirmed receiving money for artistes. He said the money was released weeks ago and they have plans on what to do and how to spend it as previously discussed.

Kenzo started the federation early last year and appointed three deputies Pallaso, Sheebah, and Juliana Kanyomozi. He at first received some hatred from fellow artistes who said he was just looking at getting money for himself from the government.

Kenzo and his federation were also accused of stealing ideas from the UMA and using them to get money. He was however unbothered revealing that his focus is to make sure fellow musicians earn from the industry.

The singer and his federation were also pushing for the copyright law which is said to be in the pipeline and will work soon.

According to Eddy Kenzo, there is money that they had requested from the government to help artistes start up businesses. He said the money has been released and they are now looking for a way of making it work.

The money that is meant for artists has been released and we are now waiting for it to go to work like we had planned,” he said.

It should be noted that not all musicians have joined this federation. A number of them refused to join for various reasons. Others claim the government is using the federation as a tool to gag their voices since they subscribe to opposition.
