Don’t boycott local awards – Bebe Cool

 Singer Bebe Cool has urged Ugandan local artistes not to boycott locally-organised awards.

Appearing at the KFM Dance Party show last Saturday evening, the singer said music awards are a good way of measuring talent and that every musician needs them.

“I am calling on musicians not to boycott awards because most musicians at their level need these awards,” he said.   The “Kabulengane” hit maker advised fellow artistes to work well with organisers. “I think what they should do is try and work with the organisers to iron out their issues.”

Bebe Cool, who recently said he was not interested in being part of local awards and actually requested to be pulled out of the Club Music Video Awards, said he was not rallying anyone to follow his move.

“If other artistes also choose to boycott local music awards, I believe they have their reasons. But no one is rallying artistes in Uganda to boycott the awards because the awards are also good for artistes to know where they stand in the industry.”
