Ugandan artistes don’t earn a lot from their work like other artists. The copyright is not working and the online platforms are not paying that well. Most Ugandans don’t stream music because of the high costs of the internet. They prefer to download the music and listen to it when they can.
According to Navio artists targeting the copyright law through government is a smart move but it is going to take a long.
However, they may not benefit as they think they’re going to benefit. He said they need to shift the focus to the music streaming platforms.
According to Navio, televisions and radios play Ugandan music all day and night but artists don’t gain anything from it.
He said he wants his fellow musicians to join him in fighting for royalties from radio, Television, and some online platforms. That is when they will be able to benefit so much from their work like other artistes in different countries.
“What we musicians need to fight for are the loyalties of radios, TVs, and online platforms,” he said.
