“The leadership of the Gospel music fraternity in Gulu/Northern Uganda under United Gospel Artists association-UGAA,would like to inform the general public about the withdrawal of all the member/artiste from participating in the Northern Uganda Music Award-NUMA or being featured in any activity regarding the awards.
We noticed a lot of pain and dissatisfaction from within our Artists who participated in the just concluded Award ceremony that took place on the the 1st of January 2020,the funs,media personalities,and other stake holders who support music in the region.
We recognized and appreciate efforts of every artist,producers, media houses and personalities,managers,and record labels that contributed to the good music of Northern Uganda.However,the role of the associations to protect,build,guide our talented members and jealously guard them from exploitation of any kind.For the interest our Artist’heart,career and reputation,we will Not participate in the awards until the organizers have cleaned their house by creating transparent measures understandable by both the Artists and music fans.
We wish our decision is understood and bears positive result not only for gospel artiste but the music fraternity where talent are respected,supported ,recognized and value is added to the Artist,promoters event organizers and the general public.”…..UGAA assocition
