Dancehall singer Cinderella Sanyu has highlighted on her achievements as the president of the Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) in the last two years.
The singer hinted at lobbying for the association and minimizing the fights between artists and producers.
“I managed to lobby for money from the Microfinance Support Center and it was this money that we used to open up offices in different places. The money also helped some artists to stabilize financially. Even the fights between artists and producers have minimized because we have devised plans for them..,” She said and continued, “I also lobbied for UMA offices at the National Theatre. It was not easy but we finally got the space.”
She is proud that she managed to increase the UMA registered numbers and expand the association beyond the limits of Kampala.
“When I came in, we were only about 1000 members and just in Kampala, now, they are over 5000 members and from all over the country. I have managed to hype the UMA till other people recognized it and now want to take positions…,” She said.
The “Boom Party” hitmaker hinted that she wanted to get back to lobby for an independent ministry for the industry.
“I have been learning a lot and I am sure am so experienced. I want to get back because vi have unfinished business. I want to push for a ministry for our industry. I had started on it but it was not yet finished. I also want to finish my battle to have an active response team to copyright…,” She said.
She is running against King Saha in the UMA presidential elections that are slated for 23rd May this year.
