Acting Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) president Cindy Sanyu has told off fellow musicians who are in the association to not expect food or money from the association because it is not a charity organization.
Speaking in an interview with NBSTV After 5 show, the s:Boom party” singer was raising a point explaining that several artistes expect food and money from their association leader and id he or she doesn’t provide, they will not listen to the plans they have to better the association.
Cindy revealed that UMA is not a charity organization where hungry musicians will go and get free food noting that once she is elected as President in the forthcoming elections, musicians should not expect anything from her.
“Artistes are so hungry that if you don’t show up as ‘bread’ they won’t listen to you. But the truth is that Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) is not a relief or charity organization. I don’t want them to expect that I will give them food.”
“There’s not enough money that the government can give to the music industry. The best it can do is to give power to this industry, and this can be through things like copyright implementation.”
“I’ll still work even if there are some Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) members who won’t like me as their President. Truth is, it’s impossible to impress everyone.”
