Uganda has so much homegrown talent but most of it rarely sees the light of day mainly because of finances. Two giant music record labels Swangz Avenue and Black Market Media have decided to come together to elevate indigenous talent in Uganda. Swangz Avenue has natured singers like Irene Ntale, Winnie Nwagi, Vinka, and Azawi while Black Market Media has managed singers like Daddy Andre.
The latest information obtained by Sqoop confirms Black Market Media CEO Cedric Singleton is in the country and has already a successful sit-down chat with the Industrial Area-based record label boss Julius Kyazze to start the mission.
If this pulls through, it’s going to pave way for collaboration aimed at improving marketing models, extending financial muscle, exporting quality acts to Hollywood and Far East spheres.
So far, Black Market Media has expanded to 15 countries with the majority in Africa representing musicians, DJs, comedians, recording producers and videographers in countries Swaziland, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, Uganda, and Nigeria.
Black Market Africa has Ugandan artistes KVAN, Daddy Andre, Ava Peace, Uga Boyz, Gentle Junior, Dj Hearts and Selecta Jeff signed to their label on top other acts from all over Africa.
