Uganda: Richard Kawesa in raging copyright battle with Africell

Ugandan artist Richard Kawesa has taken the copyright war to the doorstep of Africell Uganda, a Lebanon-based telecom company that he says has infringed on the copyright to his song, ‘Ani Akuba Babie Wange’, a lullaby that the company has been using as their call centre tune.

The embattled artist has camped outside Africell Telecommunications headquarters on Clement Hill Road in Kampala in chains and wielding placards while demanding payment of Shs52 million (Uganda shillings), the equivalent of US$15,295 for the use of his song. He first took up the protest chains one year ago on 18 January 2016, but did not get justice, and returned in January 2017. Read More..

ABOUT ONGEA!

Synopsis

KENYA MUSIC WEEK’s move to rebrand to ONGEA! is based on the need to ensure Increased Sustainability and Relevance of this very important Industry gathering, by Opening it up to a larger Market, thus increasing the Forum’s profile Regionally and Globally.

The move is informed by undifferentiated Music penetration in the Region, marked by increasing acceptance of different Genres of Music across the board. Artists are increasingly receiving Support and Acceptance of their Craft, outside their Countries; a Trend which is Driving the Growth of the Eastern Africa Music Industry.

ONGEA! will be the main Source of new Innovations, Trends and Content for Regional and Global players, who are Setting the Pace for Strategic and focused Growth of the Music &Entertainment Industry in the Eastern Africa Region.
