    According to Lil Pazo, the problem with Ugandan music is the kind of English they use that seems unmarketable. He stated that even when Ugandans try to sing English it still comes out like the local Luganda theyve so used to speaking.

    Recently, Musician A Pass came out and suggested that there needs to be gate keeping in the Ugandan Music industry simply because there is a lot of rubbish going around in the guise of music.

    He stated that it is because of the kind of nonsensical music that is being released today that the Ugandan music is not getting to the international market like we see it happening with Nigerian and South African music. He emphasized that this kind of music is not going to take the Ugandan music industry anywhere.

    “The same Ugandans that are promoting nonsense in the Ugandan music industry are the same people that sit down and wonder why our music is not going International. Look at Nigerians promoting Tems' new album and Tyla's new album. In Uganda, A Pass releases an album and Ugandans don’t understand a thing about it.” He stated.

    Remember there has been an ongoing debate regarding songs like Enkudi trending yet they are considered bubblegum music and some people have gone ahead to term such songs as vulgar and indicative music.

    Well, musician Lil Pazo has this to say about Ugandan music not going viral internationally. According to him, the problem with Ugandan music is the kind of English they use that seems unmarketable. He stated that even when Ugandans try to sing English  it still comes out like the local Luganda they’ve so used to speaking.

    “The issue is our English. Even if we try to sing English, it still comes out like the Luganda we speak every day. Nigerians like Burna boy have a way they twist their words in English, something we have failed to do. Even when we sing phrases like “I miss you girl’, it still sounds like Luganda however much it is said in English.” He said.

    According to Lil Pazo, the kind of English Ugandans sing is so ‘Geofrey Lutaaya' to be listened to by International citizens.  When asked whether Honorable Geofrey Lutaaya is the one who sings English like he is singing his local language, he stated that it is the truth, citing an example of one of his old songs ‘Oli Miss'.

    “The English Ugandans sing is the Geofrey Lutaaya English. It sounds exactly like the local language. How can nationals tell it apart? You heard Geofrey Lutaaya singing “Oli Miss" Lil Pazo stated.
