Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool, the CEO of Gagamel Entertainment, has endorsed singer Cindy Sanyu as the best candidate for the position of Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) president.
Bebe Cool endorsed Cindy Sanyu during a press conference at his Kiwatule home after previously stating that he would not vote for both her and King Saha.
Being president involves constant lobbying, interacting with the different stakeholders that include government.
We need a president who can speak English for starters. I only see Cindy as the right candidate.Bebe Cool
He gave reasons to back up his support for Cindy, saying that being UMA president entails constant lobbying of government funds, interacting with various stakeholders, and being able to speak fluent and good English, which Cindy has done since taking office.
Bebe Cool went on to say how passionate he is about Uganda’s music industry, adding that he has witnessed and experienced all of the industry’s ups and downs over the years.
I’ve always been so passionate about Uganda arts, artists, and the Ugandan music industry as a whole. I’ve observed and experienced all the ups and downs the Ugandan industry has faced. I have also witnessed different UMA presidents abandon ship before their terms of office expire because of challenges within the arts industry.
But Cindy even in the challenging Covid times withstood the pressure and kept moving. This resilience in her is proof she’s up for the task. Some artists might not agree with me because of their differences with Cindy but I believe those same differences forced other presidents to retire prematurely.Cindy Sanyu
He praised Cindy Sanyu for not resigning from her position during the Covid-19 pandemic, as some other leaders did.
