I think artistes in Uganda have over exposed themselves and the wow factor is no longer there.
Musicians are supposed to be “stars” and you don’t see stars everyday.
But in Kampala the ‘stars’ are all over town, perform in fake places for little money or just bottles of liquor, getting blind drunk and getting beaten up in pubs.
There is a ‘launch’ almost every weekend somewhere in Kampala and I think there are too many music shows for such a small city.
The reason why we don’t have a paparazzi culture in Uganda, is because we don’t have stars in this country for paparazzi to chase.
The media outlets buy stuff from paparazzi because ordinary people are constantly clamoring and willing to buy information about the lives of the rich and the famous (the stars).
Some of our “stars” don’t even bathe, they are dirty, most of the ‘stars’ are broke or act broke and desperate. Now all this doesn’t make them appealing to very many people. Who wants an autograph from a musician who constantly looks hazed on weed?
