Elderly and MPs with religious background on Monday took to the floor to slam musicians, Cinderella Sanyu and Sheebah Karungi for allegedly showcasing their bodies in public during their musical concert/ battle in Kampala on Friday.
Some of the MPs who made their concerns known to the House descried the two musicians’ dress code during their weekend concert at Kololo airstrip in Kampala as “ungodly and un-African.”
They are now demanding the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance to offer guidance to Uganda, a conservative East African country, before the whole nation sinks into ‘immorality.’
Laroo-Pece Division\Gulu East MP, Charles Onen accused Ugandan artistes, without any evidence of being drug addicts, saying the substance abuse has hampered them from exploring their role as teachers, philosophers and visionaries wondering why they don’t emulate artists from countries like Singapore, South Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), among others that used their music industry to develop national identity and national integrity.
?These 3 MPs have raised alarm over what they say was "excessive nudity and immorality” during the Cindy-Sheebah musical battle in Kampala on September 15, 2023.

Only one thing should be exposed, the Blessed Sacrament, but not the breasts,” said Onen, a former Catholic priest.
Bufumbira East MP, Nsaba Buturo (NRM) said the poor dress code in the music industry could be partly the reasons many artistes after leaving the stage, tend to disappear in oblivion.
