President Museveni reaffirmed his commitment to assisting the nation's music sector during the Museveni Awooma CD launch on Saturday at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds. He expressed his confusion, though, over the disunity among artists in spite of the government's ongoing backing.
Singer Emma Nsereko, popularly known as Munamasaka to indicate his connection to Masaka District, wrote the Museveni Awooma song, which praises President Museveni's successes in several economic sectors.
In order to discuss the issues preventing their collaboration, President Museveni declared his intention to call a conference with musicians. He stressed the government's readiness to contribute cash and supplies to help artists, but he questioned their inability to collaborate. In contrast to being owned by a single person, his concept called for the establishment of a shared studio that would be open to all musicians and available to them for recording their music at a fair price.
"Our nation is going to provide funding and equipment for the musicians. Some of them have previously received our support, but I'm not sure why they can't cooperate. So that we can agree, I will schedule a meeting. We can provide a facility for all users. Each musician can go to a studio owned by all of you and record their song there for a price, not just one person, the President remarked.
