Up and coming star Cosign, born Lutalo Bartson has sided with nbs After5 show host MC Kats, in the ongoing verbal war he has with struggling singer Kalifah Aganaga over Fresh Daddy’s music.
Recently, Kalifah launched a social media war against the veteran MC, after he allegedly refused to play Fresh Daddy’s debut song ‘Mazike’ which he labeled ‘fake’. This clash started last Thursday at Wave Lounge, a Kololo based night hangout.
But unlike Bebe Cool who claimed that people like Fresh Daddy are free to join the music industry and try their luck, Cosign believes that Uganda’s music industry will never be taken serious with such comedy music.
Popularly known for songs like Obeera wa, Kayayaana, Tondobesa among others, Cosign alleged that as artistes, they always put in a lot to produce good work to sell Uganda’s music industry, but it looks bad when someone just jumps into the industry to spoil what they are trying to build.
Through his social media platform, Cosign also claimed that it’s good to embrace new talents, but if the industry has hopes of being recognized internationally, it’s the artistes to work together, to check on the kind of music that represents them.
“We need to separate the good from the bad, and the initiative starts with us as artistes to try and regulate our music because we are trying to compete with the international market, but how can we compete on an international market with fake music,” he said.
He claimed that no one will respect Uganda’s music industry, if it turns into comedy zone.
“Truth is that what we export as comedy music is what people from outside will take us to be. It will look like all of us have been doing comedy,” he said.
However, Bebe Cool recently claimed that Fresh Daddy should be left to do whatever he wants in the music industry, provided he is not breaking the law.
“I find it so ridiculous trying to put down or fail a man who is trying to better his life from a nail polisher to an artiste, in this case the so called Fresh Daddy. Allow the man to make and save the little he can as fast as he can because you know he won’t last long but he will be a better Ugandan tomorrow. So, let’s allow all Ugandans to make money any how anywhere as long as they abide by the law and they don’t hurt anyone,” Bebe Cool said recently.
