Fans are loyal and never want to be given a raw deal. These guys will support the artistes from their first single to the latest and it’s a big embarrassment that an artiste will show up to an event most times late and then shout to the DJ, “Sample me track number 3 on the CD”.The fans feel so much disappointment with this.The habit is called miming or lipsynching.

The whole miming scourge has been eating through the industry like a plague so much that we can’t  tell real talent from the fakes. The less talented artistes hide behind the computer generated effects (autotune) to give the fans a raw deal. Many concerts are lined up every weekend but a fan will attend and leave discontented because the artistes turn up unprepared and start wiggling their waists without singing a single word and then interrupt the DJ saying “LEVEL”. If you asked me that’s a SHAME.

The fans loyalty has remained untainted.They have still turned up in mammoth numbers to grace these album launches.The artistes should take into account that many of these fans work their butts off to sustain their careers.A fan will bear the rain, the distance to show support so in turn the artiste should show up and give them their money’s worth singing live.In that way the fan will get a good deal

But much credit should be accorded to many artistes that have adopted a culture of performing live.Its never easy aligning the vocals with the band but we appreciate the effort. This should be the direction musicians are willing to take.We have many bands and live musicians doing it big.The likes of Fusion Band,Qwela,Maurice Kirya and many others have graced us with their talent as they perform their hits so can the real talent PLEASE STAND UP

Afrigo headlines Fusion auto spa’s Carnival on day-one, Femeika set for day-2

One can rightfully refer to Afrigo band as music’s equivalent of the pyramids; the band has been around for about forever, yet remains an unshakable towering presence within the industry and is such an attraction appealing to all generations.

All this and more was on display yesterday night when the band headlined Fusion Auto Spa’s first of the three-day Fused Eco Fest Carnival, a celebration of the joint’s 10 years since it opened doors to Ugandans.

With all the legends in the house such as Moses Matovu, Joanita Kawalya, Racheal Magoola, Herman Ssewanyana on the percussion among others, the band took revelers through the hits that have come to define the music industry for decades. Only those rhythmically challenged stayed on their seats.

In an industry where as soon as a new bar opens doors the old one is relegated to the history books, Fusion auto spa has strongly maintained relevance attracting a wide range of patrons, which in perspective warranted such a celebration not for one day but three, being opened by the best band in Uganda, Afrigo.

Day two is an all-day affair with lots of activities during the day selections by resident deejays, swimming, bouncing castles, Amazon bonfire etc climaxing into the night with a host of renowned comedians, and musicians headlined by Fik Femeica.
