Gagamel singer Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool has opened his Ntinda based studios to musicians with a first come first serve offer.
As the world is facing one of the hardest tests ever, so many types of people are economically affected in a way including us the recording artistes whose business has directly been halted.
As I always say, leadership is granted by God/Allah, he chose president Museveni for UGANDA for the best reason.
Many months ago I spoke about the president’s contribution towards the Gagamel audio and video studio to elevate the quality of production both audio and visual and here I guess he did not know what was coming next.
The most important part of an understanding human being is the brain and it’s at such a time that it can be seriously affected due to idleness.
Restricting a human brain from alot of things it’s used to is so dangerous that most people can end up taking DESPERATE measures, and it’s at this point that I remind musicians that our job has been directly negatively impacted on BUT we are blessed to have a special president as I said before.
Let us all recording artistes be an example to our people of UGANDA, take this opportunity to continue working by sitting home, write and record music.
This will not only give you more good music but also keep your brain away from stress, keep you strong and am sure at the end of this Corona virus war, you will reap more than you ever dreamt.
Gagamel records would like to inform all professional recording artistes in UGANDA registered with UMA that you have an offer to record your music with us using the world first class audio and visual hard and software by paying maintenance fees only.

All bookings will be done through UMA(UGANDA MUSICIANS ASSOCIATION)on 0705563653 and recording will begin with effect from Monday 30th March.

Message to artists on coronavirus
To all musicians, comedians, actors and promoters, kindly don’t embarrass the entertainment industry of UGANDA by uttering statements of losses and cancellations of events in a bid to request for compensations/refunds by government or the president, Mutuswaza.
So many businesses have been affected all over UGANDA and we as artists are not a special category of people.
I took three years encouraging you all to work with the ministry of health, to champion different causes but all looked away. Now you say you will not be working for 30 days, yet if you had been ambassadors, you would have some work to do.
Well it might even be more than one month and at this moment I advise you to rush to the ministry of health and officially join the fight against Corona virus.
Here I believe you can be able to impact more positively to our community.
It’s a kind request that all entertainers turn their platforms to support and create more awareness about the Corona virus and of course TUBERCULOSIS since they have similar signs and symptoms.
Sorry my comrades if I hurt your feelings but sanity is needed here.
Full figure has something to say too.
