Government Should Compensate artists, We are also essential - Omulangira Ssuuna

Faded singer Omulangira Ssuuna is asking the government to help fellow artists because they are chocking on debts.


He hopes through fellow singers Bebe Cool and Catherine Kusasira; his message will get to President Yoweri Museveni, so that they can be compensated just like other countries that have been helping performers.


 ‘Artists are very broke; we seriously need help. We are no longer performing, we don’t have money and events may take long to resume. We lost a lot of money during Easter period. How are we going to survive? If you look at our neighboring countries like Kenya and the rest, they  compensated artists because they understand the value of art. This government should critically look at this issue because we are very essential," he emphasized.
