Why Ragga Dee Is Not Pleased With Uganda Musicians Association

Members of the Uganda Musicians Association voted new committee members a few weeks ago after Swangz Avenue’s boss Julius Kyazze who was first elected as the chairman quit for reasons best known to him.

On the new committee, Singer Sophie Gombya is the chairperson whose vice is Ykee Benda. They on Thursday last week held they had a meeting were they discussed a few issues they are supposed to implement. Among the people who attended the meeting included Jose Chameleone and Bebe Cool who at first rubbished the association.

The two veteran artistes promised to be part of the new team and also promised to help in any way they can to see that the association operates smoothly. However, one other veteran artiste who is not contented with this association is Ragga Dee.

According to Ragga Dee, the committee members on the association can’t represent him in anyway and feels that more experienced musicians should be part of the association and committee.

“Where is Juliana, Iryn Namubiru, Cindy, and Geoffrey Lutaya on this committee? Ykee Benda can’t represent me in anything. He can’t understand my troubles and challenges. He doesn’t understand what it takes to be in the industry for 20 years!” said Ragga Dee.

Meanwhile in his response to him, Ykee Benda said that uniting artistes is one of their agendas and admitted that it’s not an overnight thing because it is going to take some time. He however added that he is going to meet Ragga Dee and they talk about this.
