Bruno K Defends Ugandan Musicians over Claims of Ignoring Needy Persons During COVID-19
30 March 2020
Ugandan music fans have appealed to local musicians to emulate their counterparts in Nigeria and other parts of the world, and donate cash to help with the fight against Covid-19.
A section of Ugandan music fans took to Twitter where they urged their musicians to offer the less privileged something other than corona sensitization songs.
"Can’t Ugandan artists copy Nigerians artists and give us some ka money?" one Tweep identified as Precious posted.
Reacting to the remark, Ugandan musician Bruno K hit out at Precious and other fans, stating that musicians have been so supportive, and involved in charity work behind the cameras.
"So many Ugandan musicians have been doing charity and helping needy people even before this pandemic. Why do you people forget so fast? We are out there helping people even though we don't come on the internet to publicize it. I would like to thank all my comrades out there helping people. God bless you brothers and sisters," Bruno K said.
"And what makes you think I am not helping? When people share what they are doing you come out and say “do it in silence “. When they follow that, you claim they are not helping. Please decided. . Not all 42 million are on Twitter stop bullying artists." Ykee Benda also jumped in to defend himself from the critics.
The grand give away that swept the internet started with Nigeria's Runtown who offered 20 million Naira to random fans to stock up on essentials in this quarantine period.
