Bobi Wine urges Ugandan musicians to arise and defend the industry

With several artistes still adamant to give their opinion on the newly proposed regulations on public performances, Bobi Wine has urged them to arise and defend the music industry before it’s too late.

We all must have read the intended laws on the music industry which were released a few days ago.

The regulations which have caused an uproar within sections of fans who regard them to be biased are increasingly growing unpopular with the artistes also joining their voices to oppose them.

Bobi Wine, who is currently in Jamaica to headline the Rebel Salute Festival, has also added his voice to the effect to explain how these regulations are bound to cripple the industry.

The legislator believes that there is nothing that has marketed Uganda as a nation better than music. It is for this same reason he believes that the industry should be protected from biased laws.

He also stresses that “the regime is bringing up new laws and regulations to gag artistes in the hope that they can kill and stop the music,” and hence the stakeholders should arise and defend it before it is too late.

I have been speaking to my fellow artistes to speak up against the injustices before it is too late. I have told them to defend the entertainment industry before it is too weakened to defend them. I have told them time and again that an attack on Bobi Wine’s music is an attack on all of us because injustice again one is injustice against all.
