Ugandan artist Spice Diana has claimed that the main reason why the local music industry isn't moving forward is because artists are unwilling to corporate and uplift their counterparts.
Speaking during a recent interview, The Source Management singer alleged that some artists would rather see their colleagues failing instead of empowering and uplifting them for the betterment of the industry.
Comparing Ugandan music scene to that of Nigeria, Spice Diana noted that Naija artists support each other. He gave an example of Omah Lay who was supported by big artists when he was making his debut.
Omah Lay is currently one of the biggest names in the Nigerian music scene.
"He had a very big song and other artists appreciated his art, posted about him and supported him. But Ugandan artists rather look at an upcoming struggling and the only thing they want is to sabotage them.
"This culture is the main reason our industry doesn't grow over the years. We have been doing well because even Nigerian artists fly to Uganda but we are stuck in one place," she opined.
In her view, the only way Ugandan music will move forward is if artists work together and support each other regardless of their status in the industry.
