Artist Big Eye has come out and ask his fellow artists to stop attacking legendary artists in the industry.
Big Eye made this outcry after Gravity Omutujju’s apology to legendary artists Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool and Dr. Jose Chameleone on Thursday.
It should be noted that Gravity came out and say the legendary trio is nolonger relevant to the music industry and they should therefore concentrate on agriculture.
However, he got backlash from the media as well as Social Media in-laws who encouraged him to stop attacking legendary artists.
“Fellow artistes who put down Bobi Wine, Chameleone, Bebe Cool, Juliana Kanyomozi, Mesach Semakula, IreneNamubiru, Geofrey Lutaaya you are the people who have hindered the respect for our music industry.”
“Those people have inspired this generation of ours like it or not. I have never heard a Nigerian artist like Davido or Wizkid putting 2face, D’banji or P. Square down but instead they appreciate them for kicking some doors for their music industry and inspiring them.”
“It’s ok to disagree with them on something but putting them down is not ok. Let us build the respect for our Uganda music industry by starting within ourselves.”
“We must respect our seniors because they have always been pillars of this music industry until were we have found it.”
“Let us appreciate their contribution towards the industry coz it’s also another way the industry will earn maximum respect from even outside.”
“For us we can fight with in ourselves but let us leave them alone and put respect on their names,” Big Eye posted on his Facebook page.
Gravity went ahead to name the top five best artists in the country including Eddy Kenzo, David Lutalo, Sheebah, Gravity and King Saha respectively.
