As the Cindy and Sheebah musical battle draws closer, we have reliably learnt that the whole idea was birthed by Swangz Avenue as early as January. It is said the record label engaged both parties about this idea and offered Shs200 million for the two artistes. The show was meant to take place in October.
However, they needed big sponsors for it.
When Sheebah prematurely announced a festival that later turned out to be a battle, with Victoria University in the mix, the industrial area-based label is said to have abandoned the idea, feeling shortchanged.
“We hadn’t yet signed any documents. It was a soft commitment to allow us to engage the sponsors and teams working on the project had been set up,” said the source.
