‘We are negotiating not begging’- Eddy Kenzo replies Bobi Wine

National Unity Platform president Bobi Wine came out and said that the newly-formed Uganda National Musicians Federation is a scam and went ahead and described the leadership of the Uganda National Musicians Federation as “money-hungry” and emphasized that the artists spearheading the new federation are in it for monetary gains.

“I fail to understand why artists rely on free money…and now, here you are, creating a federation. It’s still centered around obtaining funds from the government,” Bobi Wine said.

These statements however didn’t sit down well with Eddy Kenzo, the president of the Federation who said that those comments are political.

While speaking at the media briefing about the federation at Serene Hotel in Mutundwe on Tuesday, Kenzo noted that they are seeking the government’s help in regulating their art because it is the governing body of the country at the moment.

“As artistes, there is nothing we can do without going to the government with a request to be regulated because they are the governing body for this country as of now. Lucky enough, if the opposition takes over (power), we shall join it as well because it would be the new government. We are negotiating, we are not begging for anything. What we are talking about is how we have been cheated for a long time and how much we are demanding,” Kenzo stated.
