Singer Ronald Maro of the Humble Management, a record label based in Makindye Division, is lamenting over the copyright law (or lack of it in Uganda).
He says it is the reason why many local artists are not benefiting from their works.
According to the singer, musicians in other countries are prospering because they earn from their music and movies unlike in Uganda where musicians hustle to get money through music concerts.
“We are supposed to be paid by you, our believers who give us the (mostly 20%) from the CD / record sales which is not the case with Uganda. In Uganda the artiste is putting in 100% and sales 100% free to buy you the artiste” he said in a recent Facebook post to his followers.
The ‘Kyabazinga of RnB’ as he likes to call himself, thanks all his fans from Uganda and the rest of the world for supporting him and his music.
“ In this case and I am just being honest, I want to pay back my fans by giving them more of what the love about me but I am not paying to be loved when it is supposed to be a choice from ones heart,” he added.
Maro who is mostly known for his song ‘Mubbi Mubbi’ with David Lutalo has registered some success in some of the recent projects he has worked on. He has been a nominee in many locally organized music awards and also walked away with some accolades.
He recently opened up a recording studio in Makindye to help him and his crew members reciord music without hustling with commercial producers
