UMA has not helped musicians – Gravity Omutujju sets the record straight

Singer Gravity Omutujju has set the record straight that Uganda Musicians Association has not helped any musicians at all in this Covid19 crisis and lockdown.

He said this during an interview with NBS Television.

This came following the recent request of more money from government by events promoters and a few musicians saying it is meant to organize online concerts.

According to Gravity, if UMA is to help artists they should not be requesting money but rather requesting the government to open up the industry so that artists can work for themselves.

“UMA has not helped musicians, they only do what benefits them. I was disappointed when I heard that they are in Parliament asking for money to stage on line concerts instead of asking government to open us soon and we work. Those people are very selfish.” Gravity said

Gravity who looked very angry went ahead and said UMA should not even be in place because it is used for begging but not helping musicians like it should have been.

Gravity as a musician requested government not to listen to UMA and help artists by opening up the industry so fast before many artists run mad or move outside the country.
