Lack of Authenticity In Arts Industry Is The Reason For Its Slow Growth

Authenticity is very important in the arts industry. Its the only thing that shows creativity and it never lies in any way. You can easily tell when someone is being original or trying to fit in another’s shoes. In Uganda for example, our arts industry has failed to grow because people can’t just be original.

They want to be like someone else, which is fine but do not copy and paste their whole work because it will make you their shadow.

Let’s talk about the music industry first. This industry has suffered the worst kind of plagiarism in this country. People copy from the beat of the song, to the lyrics and the worst is to the voice. One thing they don’t know is that when you chose to copy someone, you should either be better than them or you are going down the drain.

You will find fans always comparing two people and obviously one has to stand out and most definitely it can’t be the copy cat.

There is nothing creative about any one copying another person. It only communicates that you can’t actually sit down and come up with something original on your own. Fans feel even lazy to go to different concerts, theaters. I mean, its the same kind of music, same script. It would seem like wasting money to watch the same movie over and over again.

We have so many schools of art in the country. Should we say that they are not doing a good job in grooming and training students. Is it that there is nothing new to do any more? Obviously not, people are just too lazy to carry out research and go that extra mile to stand out.

They prefer being in the shadows of those that are there thinking they can easily make it that way.

If anything is to improve in the arts industry of Uganda, then we have to go back to the drawing board. Being authentic should be made priority at all costs.
