Radio and Weasel seem to be getting back to where they belong, at the top of the music scene and this is mainly because of the new songs they have been releasing lately.
However, their steady rise back to the top has come with a few changes in how they are operating their affairs these days.
The Kampala City Council carnival is one of the major events every Ugandan artiste would die to perform at but not Radio and Weasel. Not this time at least, as the duo have decided to skip this year’s edition.
We have learnt that the ‘Bread and butter’ musicians won’t be performing at the event because of KCCA’s decision to bring Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platinumz on board.
The duo thinks it was wrong for the authority to bring Diamond for a performance and pay him over shs100m, money which they couldn’t pay all the Ugandan artistes who are going to perform on that day combined.
It is reported that, Diamond is going to be paid over shs100M alone for his appearance while the big Ugandan artistes especially the established ones will be paid not more than shs5m each. For this reason, the duo decided to forego the carnival as sign of discontent.
We however also learnt that, it might just be an excuse because they are having a US tour from the 1st of next month to the 14th of October the period coinciding with the carnival.
