However, with the conservative nature of Ugandans and the high data rates, this was assumed to be a total failure.
Ykee Benda who a few months ago released his Kirabo album however says that Ugandans have been the biggest supporters of their online music.
The Superman singer added that it’s only Kenzo who has more online fans that are not Ugandan.
He further said that as artists, they need to come together to fight websites that give out their music for free.
“The biggest buyers and downloaders of Ugandan songs are our own Ugandans except for Eddy Kenzo. Kenzo is the only artist with majority fans that are not Ugandans but the rest of us it’s Ugandans. To get these numbers abroad like Kenzo, one has to partner with international brands,” Ykee Benda said.
In regards to the digitalization of music, the singer said that Mpaka Records recently signed a deal with a UK company to distribute their music. The singer added that they built Mpaka Records as a digital brand.
He however didn’t know how to run the entire process and has only just started to figure out everything.
The singer who was appearing on NBS After 5 also took time to explain the difference between an EP and an album. This is something that confuses a lot of people.
“An EP is usually like a mini album. It usually has about 5-7 songs and has a specific message a singer is passing on. For an album, the number of songs can vary and it can be varying from different genres,” Ykee Benda added.
