Lil Pazo: Ugandan music industry stagnated due to lack of support and delayed copyright bill

Singer Yasin Mukasa, known by the stage name Lil Pazo Lunabe, believes the Ugandan music industry will stagnate until a few issues are fixed.

Speaking in an interview on the VybeLife YouTube channel, he explained that he hasn’t viewed any changes within the industry ever since he rose to fame in 2015 with his smash hit “Emotooka” as he transitioned from being a boda boda rider to an artist.

He likened the Ugandan music industry to an electric pole saying since a pole has a start and an end, the Ugandan industry reached its end, it has no signs of progressing, and it stagnated.

Lil Pazo furthermore stated that the reason why it stagnated is because many of the artists in the business don’t support and wish each other well.

He also reasoned that the Ugandan government’s deliberate delay in implementing the copyright bill is a sign that the industry stagnated and something needs to be done for the up-rising talent to benefit from it in the future which he is optimistic that it can be achieved.

The Ugandan music industry has nowhere it is going. It is not either going high or going down. it is just there, simply, it stagnated. One of the reasons I say so is because wishing well for each other in the music industry is quite hard and very low.

Here we don’t support one another like how the Nigerians do. Ugandan music is similar to an electricity pole because it has where it starts from and ends, which is exactly the Ugandan industry that stopped. Even the rising artists won’t go far because even the government has delayed passing the Copyright bill.
