A list of Ugandan musicians, deejays, and emcees who’ve been paid a paltry Shs20 million (combined) for the KCCA Carnival charity concert as Tanzania’s Diamond earned Shs165m, has leaked.
The list includes some of the top Ugandan musicians believed to be high earners.
But this latest findings will leave many shocked.
The local musicians are; Sheebah Karungi, Winnie Nwagi, Irene Ntale, Cindy Sanyu, File Mutoni, Ykee Benda, Geosteady, B2C and Gravity Omutujju.
Apart from the musicians, the shs20 million will also be shared with top disc spinnerslike DJ Shiru and city emcees like MC Kats.
It must be noted these are top Ugandan entertainers that should be able to command hefty paychecks.
However interestingly most of the top musicians like Bebe Cool, Jose Chameleone, Radio and Weasel, Eddy Kenzo and Bobi Wine turned down the offer citing disrespect from KCCA.
Tanzania star Diamond jetted into town last night ahead of the concert Friday night.
On top of the Shs165 million he pocketed, the singer has been booked at Serena Hotel where he is occupying the presidential suite.
His 25 man crew is also at Serena.
KCCA has spent shs30 million on his and his entourage’s transport from Tanzania.
The concert takes place today at Kololo Independence Grounds.
