The Uganda Artiste managers are to start an association. Mobilized by Emma Carlos, one of the pioneer artiste managers in Uganda, the managers met at Steak out Bar last Tuesday and agreed to start an association. The association has since been dubbed Uganda Talent Managers Association (UTAMA).
At the inaugural meeting, significant names such as Aly Allibhai (Talent Africa), Musa Kavuma (Bebe Cool), Lawrence Labejja (Fire Base Crew), Sserugo Emma (Bebe Cool), Sam Mukasa (Leone Island), Isaac Ssejjobwe (Ug Records Ent.), Thaddeus Mubiru (Iryn Namubiru) to mention but a few turned up.
Among the things the artiste managers discussed was the eligibility to join as well as opening an account to save funds for the association. The talent managers are due for another meeting at National Theatre next Tuesday!This may or may not bode well for the artistes.
