Around Shs4m.

What exactly do you deal in at ILM?
We do promotions for artistes, direct their music, find them gigs, brand them, write music and direct their videos.

We are managing Fille and next year, we are taking on a gospel artiste called Cooper Ssali from Rubaga Miracle Centre. We shall also be unveiling Strezz, who we got off streets, with the generous funding of Andrew Mwenda.

People have appreciated and loved Fille which is a good start. We are earning more through this company and, of course, I’m getting to know more and more people.

The industry is mean. People are so selfish.

Where are your premises located?
Doing this kind of business, you don’t necessarily need to have offices because you meet clients in cafés, coffee shops, bars, concerts and so on.
