This is where Hajji Haruna based to advise fellow artists that the time is nigh they vetnure into other business as they wait for President Museveni to open up,
“I advise fellow artists to start up some businesses because the art industry might not be opened this soon. I know we all don’t have money but its advisable you do something that will give you some money” Hajji Haruna said during an interview with spark television.
Haruna is one of the few artists who own side businesses. He has a hotel where many artists go to have their meals.
