Cindy blames Bobi Wine over proposed laws on entertainment industry

Cinderella Sanyu, Bobi Wine

Dance Hall artist Cinderella Sanyu alias Cindy thinks fellow musician Bobi Wine is the reason government is introducing new laws to regulate the entertainment industry.

The government through the Ministry of gender, Labour and Social Development is mooting a plan to introduce new laws that govern the entertainment industry in Uganda.

However, in a clip shared on her Instagram and Facebook accounts, Cindy said the Music industry was okay until the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament started politicking.

“I have been thinking about these laws that they want to impose on us as artists. At first I was really mad about some of the rules, because I had not read the entire booklet. But then I started thinking, how did this whole thing start? Recently we have been really good with the government, we were getting there until we started politicking music,” she said.

“Recently with the whole Bobi Wine thing, the people power going on, we kind of brought politics into music and now it is biting hard,” she added.

Some of the regulations include an introduction of a license that will be issued by the ministry to all artistes, film makers and theatre practitioners that ought to stage or perform in public places in and outside Uganda.

According to the document seen by Sqoop, artistes will have to sign a code of conduct that prohibits consumption of intoxicants before a performance, indecent dressing and above it all, having only a performance per day.
