East African artistes complain of Nigerian dominance on local radio

03 April 2014, 19:53 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - East African artists are starting to show concern over the serious neglect their music is facing from local media houses and the public in general.

This neglect has spawned by the over playing and supporting of West African content over our very own local content. These concerns were raised by Bebe Cool in a Facebook post condemning the act that more Nigerian Music was being played than Ugandan music.

Being one of East Africa’s largest and most successful artists, weighing in on such a topic has a huge impact, and he has recently been at loggerheads with some of the local DJ’s over the matter.

He wrote "My advice to Ugandan artists, ignore all Ugandan DJS ,TVS and RADIO STATIONS who opt to play Nigerian music more than Ugandan. I personally pity them coz they do not have a single idea how hard it was to push out Lingala music making Ugandan music a priority hence creating jobs for our brothers and sisters who today are stars.

"I FULLY RESPECT ALL DJs WHO R TAKING UGANDAN MUSIC AS A PRIORITY and all the other music next.Am not saying Nigerian music shud not be played, it should be played as much as any other country music but UGANDAN MUSIC MUST BE PLAYED MORE. PATRIOTISM (don't forget in Nigeria they play Nigerian music more), thanks".

In response to this, self-proclaimed King of Ugandan Radio "Fatboy" wrote, "This man does not understand how the radio industry works. They are not charities. They exist to make money, if Ugandan artists want their music played on radio, they need to make GOOD music". This comment has sparked a string of replies and heavy comments from Bebe Cool.
