The president of the Uganda Musicians Association, Ykee Benda has revealed that he will be stepping down from the position that he assumed last year real soon.

The Muna’Kampala singer had recently sworn that nothing will stop the MAMAs that were scheduled to be hosted in Kampala this month from happening.

This followed various Ugandans and foreigners calling out to the organizers of the MTV sponsored awards to suspend them and others calling out Ugandans and Africans to boycott them.

Ykee used the platform to thank MTV for the opportunity of considering Uganda as the host for the awards as well as postponing them.

Ykee also added that after careful consideration and thought, he will be stepping down from the Uganda Musicians Association presidential office that he has held since last year.

Ykee took over from Sophie Gombya in July 2020 after the later chose to join politics.
