For Maurice Kirya’s consultation, you might need to pay some money as he looks forward to earning from his expertise.

With all the changes the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the world into, the Ugandan entertainment industry seems the most affected.

The industry, whose main source of incomes was through concerts and shows, has been on its knees since public gatherings were banned.

On Saturday, President Museveni added 42 days to the ban as a way of curbing the second Covid-19 surge in the country.

That means that the entertainment industry stakeholders have no hope of watching their favourite artistes performing for huge crowds again.
