The Janzi Awards Academy (JAA) has decided to honor the co-founder of the Band with the coveted Janzi Lifetime Achievement Award.
Unlike other awards lined up for the 96 categories, in the Janzi Awards, this particular one is special and decided upon by the JAA.
At 72 years, Moses Matovu is a seasoned musician, songwriter, and saxophonist who has been part of Uganda’s music industry for years.
For this, the JAA, a selection of peers and representatives from 9 domains of the creative and performing arts industry of music unanimously chose him.
The domains are; performing arts, collecting societies, film and video; visual arts and crafts, books and publishing, software and innovations, cultural and national heritage, and support services. Therefore, the award will rotate between the different domains annually.
As for Matovu, he started his music journey from a church choir. His passion and talent have also enabled him to grace the stage for almost 5 decades.
He once chaired the Uganda Musicians Union and later served for two terms as the chairman of the Uganda Performing Rights Society (UPRS). This has since rebranded to Uganda Musicians Association (UMA)
Matovu will receive his award on Sunday, December 12th, 2021 at the inaugural ceremony of the Janzi Awards. Furthermore, this event will take place at Kololo Independence Grounds.
