KAMPALA – Producer David Ebangit better known as Washington is a name to reckon with in Uganda’s music industry. If you listened to music in its ripe ages of 2008 to 2012, Washington was among the big producers that defined the scopes of the music industry then.
This makes him the best person to give an honest opinion regarding the Ugandan music industry since he has seen and been part of it both in its ripe and raw stages.
He was best known for producing monster hits of the then duo Radio and Weasel that saw them top charts both locally and internationally for some good years.
The Black Hole Entertainment boss in a latest interview said that he believes that the local music industry is full of pretenders who adamantly refuse to acknowledge good music made by the local artistes.
The award winning Producer, Singer and Songwriter expressed his dissatisfaction with the Ugandan music industry and fan base which he says is full of people who look down on artistes.
Washington was talking about his experience working for the then dynamic duo Radio and Weasel and what he thinks about the duo’s song ‘Breath Away’ which he produced. In his own words, the song was a big hit.
He explained that the song was however not received, praised and appreciated the way it should have been because many people in the industry refuse to give credits because of their own bad minds.
“Our industry are people who are pretenders. Even the fans. They know the truth. They know how good something is but they refuse to acknowledge. Breath Away was a nice banger,” he stated
Wshington is not the first artist to make remarks in that line as a few days ago, former Goodlyfe manager Chagga Geoffrey made similar statements while explaining why Sama Sojah’s music is bigger abroad than locally.
