Musician Navio has revealed that international labels signing Ugandan musicians don't do it out of love.
He says most of them come for the singers who are going for their market. They sign them, and after putting pen to paper, nothing goes forward.
He explained their intention is to put the Ugandan musician on hold as they keep pushing their own to great heights. It's the reason many artists who sign with international labels don't make it here in Uganda.
"Most of those labels sign musicians they are afraid of. They see them coming for their market, and what they do is sign you and put you on hold as they push their artist. After two, three, or five years, they don't renew the contract, and you would be nowhere on the scene," he partly explained in an interview with a local television.
Navio says it's the same reason Keko and Irene Ntale never made it after signing with Sony and Universal Music.
