Singer Wycliffe Tugume aka Ykee Benda has formally handled the workplace as Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) President.
Benda has actually been the acting UMA president for nearly a month now after the initial association president Sophie Gombya left the office to concentrate on her political goals.
The Singa struck maker has actually sworn in as the president together with songstress Cindy Sanyu who will be working as the vice president.During this swearing in ceremony, Benda exposed that the highly discussed Uganda Performing Rights Society( UPRS)website was totally re-designed and released recently.
For starters, UPRS is a body which gathers artistes’dividend from all music users(Radios, Televisions, bars, beach, restaurants, clubs, online, among other opportunities)and in simply a few weeks, artistes will have the ability to enjoy their loyalties.”You will need your National ID, Email, address, your phone, data of birth, label, Payment design. We can do VISA, Mobile cash, or bank, the site was released last week, therefore we shall let you understand when the registration shall begin,” Benda stated.
Adding that when all is done, the artist will then sit and have a basic conference to vote the board that shall run UPRS.
