    It seems like the Ugandan Music industry still has a long way to go when it comes to the way Musicians blend in with each other. It is the musicians that have a long way to go however with building the reputation of the industry in order to make it desirable for newest upcoming artistes. According to artistes that have been in this industry long enough, it is not encouraging to them to allow their children pursue a career in music.

    Many musicians maintain the view that they do not want to see their children follow in their footsteps by joining the music industry as it has various challenges. They base this off the challenges they had to endure for the years they have spent in the industry. Maureen Nantume, a celebrated band singer with over fifteen years in the industry, has voiced her reluctance to let  her children  venture into Uganda's music industry.

    According to Nantume, relationships in the industry are too strained and their heinous nature scares her when she thinks of what her children will go through if they pursue music. Nantume stated that the Ugandan music industry is an environment filled with unscrupulous individuals so she feels  wary of subjecting her kids to the struggles she herself has endured in this industry.

    According to Nantume, she went as far as discouraging her daughter Whitney from pursuing a career in music even when she so badly wanted to do it. She further mentioned that it is her prayer that her children never get involved with the industry.

    "I am not keen on my children becoming musicians. In fact, I dissuaded Whitney from pursuing a music career after she initially showed interest. I pray daily that they are shielded from the challenges of this industry." She said
