The debate about Nigerian music penetrating the Ugandan music industry continues to dominate discussions on entertainment shows both on TV and radio.
A section of stakeholders believes Ugandans are not doing enough to outcompete Nigerians while others say some media houses and deejays prioritize Nigerian music.
Well, singer Kalifah Aganaga thinks the problem is a lack of investors.
According to the “Kibooko” hitmaker, Ugandan music can’t compete with Nigerian music if there is no heavy investment.
“We can’t contest with Nigerians if there is no investment. The Nigerians inject billions in their music and that is why they are going global," he said in an interview.
It should be noted that the Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister, Norbert Mao vowed to work with the music bodies on the regulation that will guide Promoters who organize shows for Nigerian artists in Uganda.
