    According to Eddy Kenzo, it is music producers that need to demand their fair share.

    Recently, music producers in the Ugandan entertainment scene have come out to complain that they are angry about the fact that musicians are not doing half as much as they do yet it is the same musicians that are undertaking them.

    Well, music producers believe that they deserve a bigger cut on the earnings of every song that they have worked on, yet all they receive is small payment unlike in International Countries where music producers keep earning from a song they have aided in producing.

    While speaking to the press, Producer Washington was angry as he spat fire as he spoke about how unfair it is that musicians make a lot of earnings from the songs that they have worked on with their producers yet the producers are nowhere to be seen immediately after the release of the song.

    According to Washington, musicians are using music producers yet musicians do not even know how to sing and if it was not the auto tune and the beats that producers add to their voices, they would be doomed with their ‘ugly' voices.

    Well, Uganda National Musicians Federation president Eddy Kenzo has some advice for music producers. According to Eddy Kenzo, instead of complaining for the World to hear, Music producers should instead  talk it out with the musicians themselves.

    During an interview on Television, Eddy Kenzo urged the producers should set clear terms about exactly what they want, set terms and conditions for working with musicians and of course endeavor to meet those conditions without going back on them.

    “Producers should set terms and conditions with musicians and come to an agreement,” Eddy Kenzo said

    Eddy Kenzo further emphasized that there is nothing the Federation can do if the Producers and musicians do not even have an agreement on how to share the dividends that come from a certain song they have worked on together.

    Kenzo further stated that  the federation can't solve arguments unless producers take charge of the situation and figure out a deal with the musicians on how to share the profits fairly.

    Eddy Kenzo however refrained from commenting about the percentage that the producers asked for( mind you they asked for 80% on every song that they have worked on in regards to production). This is simply  because  music producers believe they do more for singers than anyone else.

    What are your thoughts on this ongoing feud between music producers and musicians and where do you think this leaves song writers?
