KAMPALA – National Resistance Movement darling singer Moses Ssali, better known by stage name Bebe Cool, has called upon President Museveni to look into opening the art industry because it employs a large number of youths.
The singer who has previously castigated his fellow musicians for making such a request pointing out that it is insane to demand for the opening of the arts industry at such a time has also asked the president to extend curfew hours to at least midnight.
Through his social media accounts, the ‘Wakayima’ singer said that his prayer is that president Museveni quickly looks into the entertainment/arts industry to allow bars to operate with the SOP’s in place.
In his request, Bebe Cool believes that it is time for music and the entertainment industry to coexist with Covid-19.
“My prayer is that president M7 looks into the arts/entertainment industry soon by considering allowing bars to operate with standard SOP’S, a limited number of people, and curfew at midnight,” he shared.
Bebe added that; “This would allow minimum income for these youths. This industry employs millions of youths as waiters, waitresses, DJs, bouncers, cleaners, bar owners, event organizers, Musicians, etc who have really struggled to survive in these Covid times. It’s time for music and entertainment to coexist with Covid. We can still beat covid-19.”
The Gagamel International boss also shared how he had decided to join artiste management again, and how he would be unveiling two new talents under his label in a few days.
Bebe Cool who has been behind the mentoring of talents like Rema Namakula has decided to give a chance to new singing divas Edith, Key and Sheila Jamaal to become stars.
“Gagamel records will be unleashing two talented ladies; Edith Key and Sheila Jamaal onto the Uganda/African music scene this week,” he said through his social media platforms.
