Gravity Omutujju Explains Why He’ll Not Release Any Song on Coronavirus
3 April 2020
As several musicians keep on releasing corona sensitization songs, Ugandan top artiste Gravity Omutujju has said he’ll not be releasing a song on the deadly pandemic.
Speaking during a recent interview, the lugaflow rapper said he will not allow himself to be swept by the wave.
He noted that people need food, water and shelter more than they need the corona sensitization songs being released by musicians in the country.
Gravity said the trend has now become boring, adding that artists should do something different to give fans hope.
"I'm fed up. Even the artistes releasing these songs are annoying me more because they are boring. Thing is, people are not well, so they need food so you can't sing for them songs. Who doesn't know that Corona is here?
"Please fellow artistes, stop. People do not want your boring songs. They are tired of your songs. People have their own problems. They are busy looking for money to buy the food they are to eat and the best you can do is sing for them songs?" he posed.
He noted that people would rather listen to specialists talk about corona, other than the songs released so far.
In Uganda, several musicians including; A Pass, Bobi Wine, Lydia Jazmine, Eddy Yaweh, King Saha, Levixone, Aziz Azion, Irene Kayemba, Lyto Boss, Geoffrey Lutaaya, Joanita Kawalya, Moses Matovu, Spice Diana, Fik Fameica, Daddy Andre, Grenade Official, Bebe Cool, Vinka, Azawi, among others have already released songs regarding the deadly pandemic.
