Charles Peter Mayiga, the Katikkiro of Buganda, recently addressed creatives in the art industry, emphasizing the importance of embracing technology.

During his attendance at the premiere of “Romeo & Juliet” written by Alex Mukulu at the National Theatre, Mayiga urged artists not to fear technology, assuring them that it can enhance rather than diminish their opportunities.

Mayiga acknowledged the common apprehension that accompanies technological advancements, citing historical examples such as the initial resistance to inventions like cars and computers.

However, he stressed that embracing these innovations ultimately led to significant societal progress. He encouraged artists to adopt a similar mindset, viewing technology as a tool for advancement rather than a threat to their craft.

In particular, Mayiga highlighted the potential of social media platforms like TikTok as powerful tools for creating and promoting artistic content.

By leveraging these platforms effectively, artists can reach wider audiences and attract more people to traditional venues like theatres.

However, he cautioned against relying solely on technology without maintaining a commitment to professionalism and quality in their work.

Nagenzeeko ku National Theatre okulaba omuzannyo ‘Remeo & Juliet’ ogwawandiikibwa Mw. Alex Mukulu.

Bannakatemba bandoopedde eky’abantu okuba nga tebakyajjumbira kugenda mu Theatre wabula buli kimu baagala kukirabira ku mitimbagano.

Mbasabye okukozesa obuyiiya balinyise omutindo…
