The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has banned EeZzy’s hit song ‘Tumbiza sound’, ordered all Radio and Television stations never to play it.
EeZzy’s Tumbiza sound has topped different music charts because of its message of party animals being tired of staying home and not being able to go to bars the fact that they are locked due to Covid 19. It became a Lock down anthem and its all the slay queens favorite.
According to Ministry of health, the tumbiza sound song contains information that misleads the public about Covid-19.
“It has been noted with concern that there’s a song being broadcasted on electronic and social media with messages contradicting the Ministry of Health standard operating procedures on covid-19 prevention titled ‘Tumbiza sound’ by Eric Opoka aka EeZzy. The message in this song has in turn caused misinformation among different audiences and subsequently creating complacency among the public,”Dr Mwebesa said in a letter dated 4 December.
“Furthermore, I wish to request that going forward, all edutainment with health information/messages on COVID-19 passed onto the different media houses harmonized with the ministry of health before they are aired.”
