There are several associations uniting musicians in the country but the biggest is Ugandan Musicians Associations (UMA).
Sadly, several local musicians like Lydia Jazmine, Sheebah Karungi, Gravity Omutujju, and Ray G among others are hesitant to join the association.
Mbarara-based singer Ray G says he can't join the association because it has no direction.
The singer says he has never been convinced that the association can help musicians in any way.
“I have never been convinced that associations help musicians. I want somebody to convince me to join for valid reasons. They have no direction, for now, that is why I am not part,” Ray G explains.
It should be noted that several musicians in the regional parts of the country are not part of the association.
