The ‘Tumbiiza Sound’ Hit mater, EeZzy To Meet UCC Today

The Tumbiiza Sound hit maker, EeZzy  alias Eric Opoka will meet the Uganda Communications Commission later today. The reason for the meeting is in regard to his controversial hit song Tumbiisa Sound. The Ministry of Health claims the song insinuates rowdiness among people during the pandemic.

This follows a statement from the Executive Director of UCC earlier this week that confirms EeZzy’s invitation to the UCC headquarters. The engagement will be between the 2020 fast-rising singer Eric Opoka aka EeZzy, three of his representatives, and UCC officials. The officials seek insight into the song lyrics as stated by the complaint in the invitation letter.

‘’The complaint states that the Tumbiiza Sound song contains messages contradicting the Ministry of Health Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on Covid-19 prevention,’’ a statement from UCC partly read.

In recent events, over a week ago, the Ministry of Health wrote a letter to UCC and the Ministry of Information and Technology. The letter requested these authorities to ban the song from all mass media. The director-general of Health Services in the ministry of health Dr. Henry Mwebesa requested UCC to ban the airing of the song on all mass media channels.

‘’I wish to request that going forward all edutainment with health information/messages on Covid-19 passed onto the different media houses are harmonized with Ministry of Health before they are aired,’’ Mwebesa noted.

Dr. Henry Mwebesa reported that the song causes misinformation among different audiences and subsequently creates complacency among the public.
