On Monday, Bebe Cool launched a Ugandan music campaign urging all artists to shun TVs and Radio Stations that don't play Ugandan music more often, but instead, opt to playing Nigerian music.
CEO's of the various Radio and TV stations have taken the message and it's now left to them on whether they heed to Bebe Cool's advise or otherwise. To the DJ's, this was a direct attack on them. XFM's DJ BK and Sanyu FM's Fatboy have so far come out giving their views and they say, Bebe Cool needs to focus on quality and not quantity.
"Instead of complaining, you and your other complainants should borrow a leaf from Nigerians and Jamaicans. Their secret is simple, quality," DJ BK wrote.
Fatboy had earlier said that: "I like Bebe Cool as a person, but I'll be frank, to me his music ain't all that. 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 Jamaican."
Bebe Cool took off time again to respond to Fatboy asking him to grow up as opposed to growing fat. In all this, Bebe Cool had a very good message and many seem to agree with him based on the responses, though in future, he might have to get someone to run his social networking profiles as he spends most of his valuable time producing music.
