In July this year, MTN revived the CallerTunez Awards with an aim of rewarding the best artists in different categories, now that concerts and other outdoor entertainment activities have been suspended as a preventive measure against the spread of coronavirus.
The suspension of shows and public gatherings in the country has significantly affected income of artistes and other owners of audio content. For close to two years now, Ugandan artists have not been able to perform in any live physical show.
