“Kamese tambula” hitmaker Carol Nantongo has revealed that the reason she left Golden Band was that it had been eaten up by politics and could no longer have the image of independence as it had.
Talking I’m an interview, the “ontuuka” singer hinted that whenever the opposition insulted insults to the few people that had gone political, it always cost the whole group.
“When one would step on stage, the public would look at them as a yellow, red, or a blue supporter. So whenever people out there would cast insults, they were not directed on only one person but all of us as a group…,” she said.
On this ground, the singer saw it vital to leave the group before the public perceived her as a politician instead of a singer.
“So, at that period when people would view our group and a political band. I saw that it would damage my career which I had just started. That’s when I decided to quit.”
Nantongo is known for her songs kamese tambula, ontuuka, nakusiima, ensonga, kufa kuwona, ndagirira, wankwekula, and many more.
