The corona virus pandemic has brought everything to a standstill, with most people in the country self-isolating in order to prevent further spread of the virus.
Early this month, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni announced a lock down and banned all public gatherings in the country.
The ban affected most people, but the worst hit are musicians who really on concerts and shows for their income.
Speaking during a recent interview, renowned Ugandan musician Winfred Nakanwagi alias Winnie Nwagi said she had a set of concerts lined up this year, but all of them had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.
“I’m not okay because we are currently spending and not working. I have made a lot of losses because I missed many shows. Like Easter, I would have gone to Germany, Sweden, Amsterdam, UK among others. I had got my visas but they did not help me. I would also be performing on local shows, functions, I’m losing money but I believe it will find me,” Nwagi told NBS.
The Swangz Avenue diva had hinted that she would be holding her first ever music concert this year, but judging on the current events, the same may not materialise.
“Everything was put on hold. We were expecting to release dates but I do not think it will happen. Unless when we resume work because any sponsor needs money to invest in your show. But we shall have the concert when the situation is back to normal,” she said.
