Renowned city tattooist Shadrack Kuteesa has signed a deal with Ntinda based Sikia Media Services owned by award winning song writer Sylver Kyagulanyi. He will manage the company.
Apart from pricking people’s bodies, Shadrack also manages musicians and many music observers say he is among those who raised the profile of Hip Hop in Uganda.
Artists like Baboon Forest’s CEO GNL, Keko give credit to him for nurturing their musical talents into full grown careers and was managing Tonix before signing the deal with Sikia. Shadrack will now be working for Sikia as the company’s business Development manager. Shadrack says he looks forward to changing the face of the company and hopes that with his experience in managing artist, Sikia will not regret hiring him.
However the details of the contract still remain scanty. Sikia Media Services is a media company that was started by gospel Artist and song writer Sylver Kyagulanyi 8 years ago.
It is a multipurpose company that does advertising, nurturing musical talent (Big Tyme) in addition to housing the country’s state-of-the-art studio that boasts of equipment second to none. Sikia now promises to give record houses Fenon and Swangz Avenue a run for their money.
