Dancehall artiste Cinderella Sanyu commonly known as Cindy has called on events promoter Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo to stop undermining artistes but rather look at them as co-partners in the entertainment business.
Bajjo recently released a list showing how much they (promoters) will be paying local musicians per show, which the Uganda Musicians Associations (UMA) boss, says is a sign of disrespect.
Cindy castigated Bajjo, saying even if a promoter is big like KT Events, and others; they cannot organise a concert without artistes, because people go to see artistes, not promoters.
“Undermining artistes should stop. I want promoters to starting looking at us as co-partners in this business. I know the time I invest in my music and how I market myself to reach the level, where I am able to charge the fee I want,” she noted.
Cindy added: “But, a person who doesn’t know my journey to just come up and set what they think I am worth is not good. I see disrespect in that, and I think we need to respect each other.”
