More than ever before, Ugandan DJs have pledged to give Ugandan music a priority and more airplay as compared to the foreign music they have been promoting.
Previously, DJs and artistes have had arguments on how much Ugandan music should be played with DJs arguing that foreign music has always been more appealing to their audiences, unlike boring local songs.
In a snap of a finger, DJs have now agreed with artistes that Ugandan music deserves not just priority, but also a higher percentage than 60% that has been in rotation. This shall be effected at all costs, irrespective of the stubborn fans.
Recently the pandemic has left many artistes and DJs locked indoor with no opportunity to work and artistes have used the opportunity to mend relationship with DJs, by giving them some relief food, money and basic items.
Because they know DJs are not in their usual music booths commanding which song suites which BPM, artistes have rushed to give them money and food as a way amending their torn relationship ruined by ego.
Apparently, local DJs countrywide can’t wait for the lockdown to end so that the can play more of Ugandan music, as a way of thanking local artites for standing with them in this trying time of the covid-19 crisis.
