Last year, a number of artists launched the Uganda Musicians' association headed by Swangz Avenue’s Julius Kyazze before he resigned in September last year, leaving other committee members to take charge. The association was formed to speed up the growth and consumption of Ugandan music among other reasons.
However it has slowly been collapsing because of different internal conflicts.
A few days ago, some musicians converged at Jahazi Pier in Munyonyo and formed another committee to continue with the work the old team had started.
This will be headed by faded musician Sophie Gombya as President and Ykee Benda as vice president.
The other musicians on the committee are; Phina Mugerwa the new Secretary, Big Eye & Rena Nalumansi the Treasurers, Bushingtone the PR, Vicent Ssegawa the Kadongo Kamu representative, Swahab Kasumba the religious representative, Victor Kamenyo the Hip Hop representative, Ssekamate Grace the Band representative, King Michael the Raggae Dancehall Rep, Justin Buss Kilaka as Media representative, Barlon & Kiyingi as the Mobilisers and Jamie Culture as the chief whip.
