Below is Fatboy's statement in full:
"This man does not understand how the radio industry works. They are not charities. They exist to make money. If Ugandan artists want their songs played on radio, they need to make GOOD music."
Fatboy adds that: "As it is, very few Ugandan songs make the cut as 'good', and that's why you don't hear a lot of it on the airwaves. I like Bebe Cool as a person, but I'll be frank, to me his music ain't all that."
Fatboy goes on to ask why he imitates Jamaicans if he is that patriotic! "And I feel the same about most other Ugandan artists' songs. And if patriotism is important to Bebe Cool, then why does he pretend to be a Jamaican? Him and most other 'local artists'? Because they are essentially imitators, the market typically prefers the real thing to these guys.."
The 'Be My Valentine' singer concluded: "Why listen to Bebe Cool when there is Konshens? Why listen to Cindy when there is Nyanda? I think you get the point."
The Nyonyi Nkezze singer is yet to respond to this one too. He has already sorted XFM's DJ BK whom he told that he does not give out eggs to be popular, but instead, he plays good music.
