In an appreciative post on his Facebook page, Kenneth Mugabi praised Ykee Benda's kindness and humility and urged all Ugandan artists to work together in a bid to take the industry to the next level.
"I stumbled upon Ykee Benda 's humility and kindness. While it may sound unclear to a few, the Ugandan Music industry is still held back by our unwillingness to support fellow Artistes.

"I invited Benda to my Album Listening party and he cancelled a business meeting just to be part of the event. Our music industry will only thrive if we choose to work together and wish ourselves well. Art is a collaborative venture and that is the way to go," Mugabi posted.
Kenneth Mugabi had earlier announced that he would be selling his album at a premium fee of 100 USD (approximately UGX 350K) with only a few copies available and Ykee Benda happened to be among the first people to get a copy.
"On a lighter note, I would like to appreciate Ykee for being among the few musicians who have bought a copy of my new Album," he concluded.
On his part, Ykee Benda said he is a big fan of Kenneth Mugabi's art and couldn't fail to show up.
