Presidential advisor on youth and artists affairs Jennifer Nakangubi alias Full figure has said that the music industry has not benefited from the stewardship of Hon Godfrey Kiwanda at the helm of the tourism ministry.
Fullfigure argues that the music industry is vital in the promotion of the tourism sector but there has been a big gap between the two entities that needs bridging, something that Kiwanda has not given attention.
The motor mouth presidential advisor who also confessed to being one of the longtime upcoming artists made these remarks during the artists’ meeting with Minister Godfrey Kiwanda.
“I’m one of the artists who stagnated at the level of a forever upcoming artist because of the time have spent in the music industry with just only three song. We have not benefited anything from Kiwanda’s Ministry,” she shared.
Kiwanda had invited them to meet with the Uganda Tourism Board to discuss about the local tourism industry and how they can actively take part in its promotion.
During the meeting, Kiwanda revealed why the MTV MAMA Awards were postponed and promised the country that they will return in May, bigger and better.
The meeting had several upcoming artistes and they agreed on composing a song for the tourism industry as a way of kick starting a lasting relationship with the entity.
The tourism board is set to spend about Shs300M in efforts of getting artists from all Ugandan regions to promote the industry.
