Last year, ahead of Kanyomozi's concert, which was held on August 18 at the Kampala Serena Hotel, Nimrod took to Facebook to say that he was disappointed in artistes for supporting the Nabikoowa hitmaker's concert yet she never supports them.
Juliana wouldn’t have promoted Spice Diana’s concert if I hadn't called her out - Nimrod
Nimrod Nabeeta, alias D.J. Nimrod, believes never in a thousand years would Juliana Kanyomozi have promoted Spice Diana's concert if he hadn't called her out last year.
"... This Music Industry can be funny and unpredictable. The way Ugandan Musicians are posting about Juliana’s Show and yet she NEVER posts any of your shows!!" he said in the post.
Nimrod noted that Kanyomozi had only posted about Azawi's concert which was held on July 22 because Azawi is managed by Swangz Avenue, which was also promoting her (Kanyomozi's) concert.
"She only posted Azawi’s coz [sic] Swangz is doing her show," he said.
"I love an industry where we support each other or where we support those who support us... She doesn’t deserve the support she doesn’t give."
In a recent media interview, Nimrod said that after calling out Kanyomozi, he received multiple links and screenshots showing posts the songstress had shared on her social media promoting concerts of other musicians. He said she had last promoted a fellow musician’s concert in 2017 and she was also selective about whom she posts about, looking at only "friends and those she knows." This reporter couldn't independtly verify this.
Nimrod said: "After what I said artistes started posting each other."
He added: "Sometime back, do you think Juliana would have posted Spice Diana? For what reason? It was impossible... Would Juliana have attended Nwagi's show? In whose show had you ever seen her as a guest?"
It's true that since then Kanyomozi has promoted a number of artiste's shows, including that of Jose Chameloene, David Lutalo, Eddy Kenzo, Slick Stuart & Roja Mixtape --. Still, it may not necessarily be because of what Nimrod said.
Last year in December when she was asked why she doesn't give musicians “drops”, she said: "Anyone who has followed me for a while will tell you that I'm always there for my colleagues. Social media support is not the only form of showing support. There are a lot of things I do for people that you don't know about... so, I don't have to explain myself because someone talked. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If he sees me like that, it's fine. I'm a big fan of Ugandan music. On my playlists, it's Ugandan music that's on top. In my car, there are repeats of Ugandan music. I'm patriotic."
Nimrod noted that musicians have since started supporting each other, citing the love they showed Chameleone when his stage collapsed and others that have been buying VIP tables to attend concerts.
