Lubaga South legislator Kato Lubwama has given his unsolicited opinion on kid rapper, Patrick Senyonjo alias Fresh Kid’s future in the competitive music industry.
According to Lubwama, Fresh Kid’s music style is unsustainable, and that the entertainment industry has seen many rappers just like him – who all rise very fast and fall without anyone remembering them or their music.
Lubwama claimed that just like Kid Fox, Rocky Giant, Red Banton and the rest, Fresh Kid’s fame and music will also fade before the seven-year-old even completes his primary education.
He used the opportunity during an interview with Spark TV and advised the Kid to stay focused on his studies more than music, because music might not pay for him in future, thus leaving education as his only way out.
As a music and comedy veteran, Lubwama urged Fresh Kid’s management to take him to music schools, so that he can learn vocal melodies, and also write for himself songs that carry meanings, for it’s the only kind of music that remains timeless.
He alleges that one of the reasons why many artistes are failing to manage their career is because they didn’t attain a minimum education standard, and urged Fresh Kid’s management to not let him fall a victim too.
Fresh Kid’s music and education has been a social media topic of discussion ever since the Minister for Youth and Children Affairs Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi stepped in and set regulations to the Kid rapper.
Though some suggest that he should be left to go on with his music career, others suggest that education is the best alternative that Fresh Kid needs, and that his management should look at first and music will come in later.
