On Monday this week, the Uganda Medical Association petitioned the Uganda Communications Commission, asking the regulating body to ban Gravity Omutujju's latest song "Mpiso."

The medical doctors argue that the photos and videos used in the song undermine the medical profession and also portray a negative image of their profession.

"We demand that the entertainment industry ceases misusing our clinical coats and stethoscopes as this undermines the professionalism of our medical community and erodes public trust," Dr. Herbert Luswata, the UMA president, said.

He added,

"The pictures circulating are not good at all. He is seen with a needle, wearing a clinical coat and stethoscope, portraying that he is examining a woman bending against him, and it's ugly. We are going to ask UCC to ban this song on moral grounds. It looks like that's what we do to people's women in examination rooms, and it's not good," Luswata emphasized.

In response, Gravity Omutujju has asked the doctors' body to pay him for publicizing their profession, claiming he shows people that injections are not a bad thing and should always be sought instead of tablets.

"The medical doctors should pay me for publicizing their profession. There is nothing immoral in the video; it's basically art. I am trying to tell people that injections are not a bad thing and that they should always accept to be injected when they visit hospitals," he partly said in an interview with a local television station.
