UMA Gives It’s Views On Ongoing Battles Between Musicians And Record Labels

Uganda Musicians Association ( UMA ) president Cindy yesterday came out to give the association’s stand on the ongoing wrangles between record labels and musicians.

A number of artistes have over the years become embroiled in contractual disagreements with music record labels. The latest are Nina Roz and Bruno K who are at loggerheads with Black Market records.

The parties have numerous disagreements regarding the contracts the singers signed. These have been in the news for the past couple of days and it could end in court.

Cindy however said that there is nothing they can do once the contracts have been signed. The Boom party singer said that most of the artistes sign these agreements minus reading them.

It’s only when they want to opt out that they start reading them and discover that they fell into a trap.

“For the issue regarding contracts between labels and artistes, there is nothing we can do as UMA once the contract has been signed. The only thing we can do is to try sit with the label and if they are good, they let the artiste go, if not there is nothing we can do about it.” Cindy said.

She further said that they are holding seminars to teach artists about their contractual obligations.

Black Market records however has rubbed a number of people wrong and artistes.

Dance hall singer Rabadaba opted out of the label criticizing it for failure to steer his career as agreed.

Other artistes have also decried the situations they are subjected to while working with artistes signed to the label.
