Through the years, Media and artistes have always been on the same page. It is through the Media that artistes’ work is consumed by the public. However, that long relationship is about to break as a number of musicians and other stake holders in the entertainment industry have decided to petition Dembe FM and Spark TV to fire it’s presenter Isaac Katende alias Kasuku.
Through their Uganda Musicians Association body, a total of 88 musicians are all signatories on this petition that was served to the Namuwongo based station to act as soon as possible or else they withdraw their rights of their music playing on the station.
This comes after the artistes blame the Kasuku for disrespect, unprofessionalism and utterance of bad words on air through his Talk and Talk show that airs every Saturday morning.
Among those we have so far identified to have signed the letter are Eddy Kenzo, Maureen Nantume, Messach Semakula and Pallaso among others.
As the letter is being processed, Kasuku is also under fire from Frank Gashumba who is on the request to gather 100,000 signatures to also have him fired but that hasn’t come off easily as there is another list that is there to save Kasuku.
Whether this will come to pass or not, the relationship between the media is on the verge of collapsing.
