The release of Fik Fameica’s new collaboration with Nigerian superstar Patoranking came with a lot of criticism accusing foreign artistes of never putting in the effort to promote the collabos made with Ugandans.
There are several projects on which Ugandan artistes have worked with foreign artistes from allover the world including those in Jamaica, Ghana, Nigeria, USA, UK, and other countries.
Usually, the Ugandan artistes go in for such collaborations with the aim of tapping into the international market so as to spread their wings across the globe.
Unfortunately, when these collabos are released, it is always an anticlimax in regard to how much the foreign artistes promote these collaborations in their countries.
The most recent case is of Fik Fameica’s collabo with Patoranking which is honestly a good song but has failed to earn the required buzz around it.
Critics have attributed that to Patoranking’s failure to create buzz around the song. They argue that the Nigerian singer did not even recognize it as one of his songs when he released a list of songs on his new album.
Ugandan musician Alexander Bagonza a.k.a A Pass has aired his opinion on why such collaborations never make it to the desired level and one of those is that Nigerian artistes use Ugandan artistes to tap into their market.
They accept to record the collaborations, some go ahead and even shoot the videos only with the aim of tapping into the Ugandan market yet they never push the songs in their country, something A Pass doesn’t respect at all.
