“In simple mathematics, 20,000 people paying 20k for a concert is 400,000m.To organize such an event; you need at least not less than 200m hence saving 200m for a nun ‘TUBONGA NAWE’ artist. And it’s an outdoor event that has no weather guarantee. On the other hand, Let’s say 19000 boycott my concert. my organizing budget will be half, I will go indoor and be sure about the weather and for an indoor event, before it starts, you already know whose coming, I will charge higher because my musical status has both high end fans and low end fans. One table will go for 5m and I will only need to sell 100 tables each of 10 people sitting but 5m multiplied by 100 tables equals 500,000m. Minus expenses of 100m I save 400,000m.” He explained.
The artiste went ahead to give the FDC leaders a piece of mind saying “I wish FDC put MATHS in their arguments, it will help them not see Uganda’s issues in fiction.”
As if that wasn’t enough, the ‘Love you every day’ artiste further called on those people who want to boycott his concert to do so if they please but explained that he won’t be put down because of their actions since good music still remains good music.
“So my brothers and sisters who are talking about boycotting my concerts, I started Serena concerts 2 years ago and this is the third year but I’m so sure that I will sell all the tables and even broadcast the event live for the whole country to see that you can’t put a good man down. The boycott will also help the music industry to evolve to the next level where I want to only perform once or twice a year but make big money to last me throughout and this will increase the demand for any artist hence raise the pay for musicians in general after all people have been complaining that Ugandan musicians perform everywhere all the time hence loss of value.
I also wish to remind my fellow Ugandans that u can’t say no to good music. When supporting us, you didn’t do us any favor, you were consuming our good product and to make matters worse not even paying for it. All ‘tubonga nawe’ artists need to do is to go back to studio and record good music that’s it.
This post is meant to help u think again coz we are not only ready for the boycott but even to reassure you that we confidently practiced out political right as responsible citizens of uganda,and we still stand strong behind our president Yoweri kaguta Museveni and the NRM ideology.” Bebe Cool concluded.
