The Ugandan music industry is the only industry where managers become enemies with musicians after they leave their record labels or music groups.
It is not yet a month since singer Chozen Blood quit Team No Sleep (TNS) camp headed by veteran music promoter and manager Jeff Kiwa but the two are already fighting
In an interview he had with Chano8 recently, Chozen told Chano8 that he left TNS in good terms to look for greener pastures. We thought everything was going to move on smoothly but it seems that is not the case following what happened at the Kisementi, Kamwokya based Sky Lounge on Sunday the 14th of October
Jeff and Chozen coincidentally met at Sky Lounge to party their Sunday night away. As Chozen was chilling while sipping on some drinks, his new song ‘Lumya’ was released immediately after quitting TNS was playing in the background which could have rubbed Jeff on the wrong side thus beating the singer to pulp. Had it not been security’s intervention, Chozen would now be bedridden in hospital
According to his explanation, the singer said that Jeff approached his table, grabbed and pushed him down although he up to now can’t tell the reason why.
Chozen is now nursing the would he sustained from the beating he got from Jeff Kiwa
In July 2016, Team No Sleep (TNS) signed Chozen Blood and and during his stay with TNS, the humble looking singer released ‘Wadawa’ featuring Sheebah, ‘Byebyo’, ‘Byakyalo’, ‘Slay Queen’ and ‘Awunza’ songs
