    Vyroota gives shocking reasons why  Ugandan music industry is backward and fake
    • June 29, 2024 • 23 days ago
    in summary
    According to Vyroota, the root of the problem lies in the competitive nature of Ugandan musicians, who focus on outdoing each other rather than striving for international recognition.

     Ugandan singer, Vyroota, whose real name is Musigazi Abdulaziz has sparked a lively debate in the music industry by boldly stating that the Ugandan music industry is "fake" compared to the thriving Nigerian industry.

    While appearing on 100.2 Galaxy FM on Friday evening, June 28, the risk hit maker mentioned that the root of the problem lies in the competitive nature of Ugandan musicians, who focus on outdoing each other rather than striving for international recognition.

    On the contrary, Nigerian artists compete with global talent, pushing them to excel beyond their borders. Vyroota admires the supportive nature of the Nigerian industry, where established artists make way for newcomers to shine.

    He cited the example of Burna Boy, who paused releasing music to allow rising star Ruger to gain momentum.

     

    “Our music industry is fake because we compete with ourselves. In Nigeria, they are better because they compete with people outside Nigeria. Nigerian music is bigger than Ugandan music because the Nigerians are supportive, when Ruger was coming up, Burna Boy and other big Nigerian musicians paused releasing music for the boy to shine, in Uganda, it can’t happen, big musicians don’t want the young ones to shine,” he said.

    Vyroota's comments resonate with other Ugandan singers who have long admired the solidarity and support within the Nigerian music industry. Despite differences among Afrobeat musicians, they manage to resolve their issues peacefully, fostering a sense of unity and growth.

    In Uganda, however, the story is different. Vyroota believes that established musicians often hinder the growth of younger artists, refusing to collaborate or offer guidance. This lack of support stifles creativity and prevents the industry from reaching its full potential.

    Vyroota's statements have sparked a mix of reactions from internet users with some supporting his views and others defending the Ugandan industry. Some have argued that the industry has made significant strides in recent years, with artists like Eddy Kenzo and Winnie Nwagi achieving international recognition.

    However, Vyroota remains confident that the industry needs to change its mindset to truly thrive. He urges Ugandan musicians to look beyond local competition and strive for global excellence. By doing so, they can create a more supportive and inclusive industry that nurtures talent and celebrates success.

    As the debate continues, one thing is clear: Vyroota's comments have struck a chord, and the Ugandan music industry is at a crossroads. Will they heed Vyroota's call and strive for international greatness, or will they continue to focus on local rivalries? Only time will tell.
