Trending Swangz Avenue artiste Azawi has made a name in the Ugandan music industry as one of the best song writers and singers, despite being less than a year old in the industry.
She credits her fast growth and success to the mentorship, marketing and support she has receiving from management team under Swangz Avevue label.
Speaking during an interview with Urban TV, Azawi has opened up on the strength of Ugandan artistes and how they can help boost the country's image to the outside world.
The ‘Quinamino’ hit maker gave her two cents on how upcoming artistes can be able to make it in music with the help of music labels; giving an example of her label Swangz which is one of the top labels in Uganda currently.
"As of late, the music industry doesn’t have like a structure. There just a few organisations that are there to bail out talent. I feel like we need more labels, more professional and organized teams to come out and help develop talents.
"I think we still lack in that. You can see we only have Swangz Avenue yet we should have like 20 or 50 of those that can help the industry grow. We should also have schools that teach talent because like it is with developed music industries which have structures and all artistes are well represented. So I think we need a more organized system and that’s why I call in the government to come and help us. Why I say this is because the music industry is capable of strengthening the brand and image of the country. So that is why I feel like we should have a more organized industry to develop more young talent," Azawi said.
