KAMPALA – As is the norm ever since the lockdown started, Pr Wilson Bugembe hosts different celebrities at his Nansana based Worship House for a scientific Sunday service.
Last Sunday was not any different as the singing pastor hosted songstress Cinderella Sanyu where she opened up on her musical career and why she dumped the idea of having musical managers.
In her summon to the scanty congregation, Cindy narrated how she decided to lose huge opportunities that would thrillingly uplift her music career but chose to maintain her right place before God, the creator.
Cindy revealed that she exclusively became the only music artiste in Uganda to drop the will of working with any management.
According to the Boom Party hit maker, this was because, a number of male music managers would at times persuade her to sleep with them in reward of pleasant music gigs and platforms.
“There are so many opportunities I have lost in life because I decided to do what is right. Am the only artiste in Uganda who decided to not have a management because I knew that managements most times involves you selling yourself. I mean selling your personal values as a woman,” Cindy said.
The self-proclaimed ‘King herself’ also noted how such actions demeaned any woman’s personal values, prospects and aspects in life as many have ended up losing lives and dreams because of the lifetime frustration and depression they find themselves capped into.
“As a woman, you wish to love only one man whom you truly love not the man who is giving you deals. So, you want to fall in love genuinely. When you get a manager sometimes you have to keep sleeping with him so that they would continue giving you deals,” Cindy explained.
The diva also narrated how she turned down advice from friends and reputable music advisors of having a musical manager.
“I decided that am not going to have a manager and instead resolved that whenever I needed one, I would call my sister. I lost so many things because of that. Many times, people used to tell me, ‘you are not international, why don’t you just accept and join this management so that you can go international’” she shared.
Cindy noted that she stayed glued to her decision with the belief that God would one day reward her for her faithfulness.
“I didn’t join particular cults, rituals or sleep with some people because I wanted to do my things right. I believe that if you do things rightfully God blesses you.”
Cindy has succeeded in keeping her name among the top female artists in the country for the last 18 years.
With a number of hit songs to her name, Cindy boasts of a lit music career endowed with enormous local and international awards and recognitions.
Before the lockdown earlier this year, Cindy broke the record of the first female artist to hold a successful music concert ‘Boom Party’ at Lugogo Cricket Oval, Uganda’s renowned biggest music concert venue.
