The singer, known for his electric dance performances, says he recently received an invitation for a meeting by the leadership of the new federation.
Coco Finger invited to Kenzo’s federation, still skeptical
Dancehall singer Coco Finger has reportedly been invited to join the Uganda National Musicians Federation (UNMF).
He’s however, skeptical about the intentions of the group although he’s willing to give it a shot.
“Some of these groups come with their own hidden intentions; they might be trying to push something through, and so they invite everyone to join so they can get membership and when time comes to share money, they split it among themselves,” he told Bukedde TV in an interview.
“I hope this is not the case with this federation, and if I realize that they are genuine, I will join.”
Coco Finger joins a string of other artists who have expressed skepticism about the UNMF, which is led by Eddy Kenzo as president and Sheebah Karungi as the first vice president.
Coco Finger, real name Moses Okori, hit the music scene in 2008 through a collaboration with Wafagio Band. He peaked in the early 2010s, winning Best New artiste 2011 in the Pearl of Africa Music Awards.
His career however plateaued in the years that followed and has lately been focused on music production for other artists, as well as other commercial businesses.
He’s currently running a music studio called Studio Tym in Makindye.
The facility, he says, offers opportunities to promising artists to try out their talents, sometimes at no cost.
“If you are upcoming, and you have a good voice and good lyrics we are giving you an opportunity,” he said.
The singer has also made investments in construction business, revealing in September 2022 that he’d put up a storage building along Entebbe Road as a “side business.”
