Uganda Music Awards on Thursday night unveiled nominees for the “The Uganda Music Awards” [TUMA] 2017 at Fame Lounge party in Kampala.

Launched in March 2017, the awards will be dished out on 4th August at Kampala Serena Hotel where winners will be announced basing on a 40:60 vote criteria (Public: Academy).

Last night, Jose Chameleone, Eddy Kenzo, Sheeba Karungi and David Lutalo, were among those nominated for “Artiste of the Year” category at the TUMA awards nominee unveiling party.

It came after Bebe had lashed out on social media at Ugandans who “took side against me and other musicians who went on to perform during campaigns or who involve in politics”.

“I stand and say that if our politicians don’t understand the value of music/musicians/entertainment industry then we will never developed as artists,” Bebe said.
