President Yoweri Museveni has pledged to give sh120m to the musicians of West Nile under their umbrella the West Nile Musicians’ Union of Uganda (WENIMO) for a state-of-the-art studio and equipment.

The development followed a request by the musicians’ chairperson, Kennedy Madira aka JM Kennedy, during Museveni’s tour of the sub-region.

There are an estimated 1,300 musicians and performing artistes in West Nile, according to the union.

JM Kennedy thanked Museveni for the gesture.

He said the the studio and equipment will improve the quality of music video production in the sub-region.

“We will ensure that we levy charges that are affordable because currently, a good quality video produced costs from sh5m to sh30m, which is hard for our musicians to afford,” said the union leader.

JM Kennedy said the studio will also help other categories of entertainers, including content creators, podcasters, and movie directors.

Museveni has been traversing the region with a focus on wealth creation via the parish development model (PDM) and Emyooga.

He also pledged to give the musicians money to produce a pro-NRM song that they sang on the day in support of the President and the ruling NRM party.
