Singer Carol Nantogo has officially walked out of Golden Band after five years of business.
Nantongo shared a post on her page on Tuesday, saying that she is thankful to Golden Band for they introduced her to the music scene, but the band is slowly losing its values and she can’t keep working with them.
“To my surprise, once a great family started reducing to almost none, directors opted for better business investments and some members relocated to UK and USA respectively. Then the wave of politics couldn’t save us either,” she said.
Adding that when these issues arose in the band, she was left in the middle of the lake in a canoe, forcing her to make this hard decision because the demands on her side kept on increasing yet the group wasn’t carrying out the routine concerts like they used to.
“My mum and the family entirely depend on me because am the bread winner. I personally have to push my career to the level where you want me to be. I had to painfully take a decision to go solo. Its official my fans, I am now a solo artiste from the time you are reading this post, I will be available for Golden band as a guest artiste for now, I have to move on,” she said.
Nantongo will be working with Hajji Musa Kavuma of KT Promotions, and according to her, KT will be her new management.
“There no definite words that can describe the love, support and care the Golden Band Directors showed to me. I can’t pay you but I pray so that God blesses you. The good thing is that am still under the guidance and management of KT Promotions.”
Golden Band was one of the most vibrate bands around town, comprising Mesach Semakula, Stecia Mayanja, Ronald Mayinja, Catherine Kusasiira, Maureen Nantume, Charles Serugga, Doreen Mutiibwa, Karitas Kario, among others. But according to a source, money, politics and poor management broke this band into pieces and its currently left with only one member (Semakula).
