In a passionate plea for inclusivity and support, female rapper Keko spoke on the bias against artists who sing in English. Despite being among a group of artists who predominantly sing in English, she shared that she has faced challenges in gaining a wider audience in the music scene.

She revealed the difficulties faced by artists who sing in English within the Ugandan music industry, suggesting that they don’t attain a warm reception despite their talent and creativity. These artists often struggle to break through due to a perceived bias and are discouraged.

Keko emphasizes the need for a more inclusive music scene that embraces artists from diverse linguistic backgrounds and believes that all artists, regardless of the language they sing in, should be given equal opportunities and support.

I wish we all love ourselves as Ugandans and support everyone who sings good music regardless of what languages they sing in. Because when we discriminate against them, it is a great discouragement , yet sometimes they know English more than the local languages.
