Thursday, December 29 2011

First Published: Saturday, 05 March 2011
Being a female is one thing, an upcoming artiste is another, but being an upcoming female musician is a bad triple fold! You see them flaunting their thinly clad bodies on stage as fans cheer on and you think to yourself: They have it easy!

Well, they don't! The things that these girls go through in the name of making it to the top is a gory tale of rape, molestation, abuse, exploitation among others. From the time they think to themselves 'I should pursue a music career' to the time they actually have their songs enjoy airplay and club play; they will have paid a big fee.

In most cases not just monetary! We explore some of the things that these girls have to go through all in the name of fame.

Music Producers - Not so many of them will need a songwriter, to begin with, because when they are starting out, they are so ambitious they write their own songs and most times they have no idea how horrible they sound (no offense!) Armed with her lyrics and bad vocals (or good), they head to the studio.

If this producer does not come out to ask for sex, he will avail studio time only at night with the two of them in the studio. Some girls have been raped in studios in the wee hours of the morning.

Exploitive Managers - When it comes to managers, they use the young upcoming artistes as their toys. This is the very reason girl groups like Wafagio have new members every three months. There are so many exploitation stories especially with girl groups which are managed by men. Sheebah Karungi left Obsessions because she was left out of songs and parts in the musicals because she did not give in to such advances.

Opportunistic DJs, Radio and TV presenters/ music controllers - It is one thing to produce a song; it is a whole other thing when it comes to have it play on Radio, TV or in Club. It is a hustle, you move from one Radio to another. And these work on the principle of 'Be good to me, and I'll be good to you!'

Being new most of these girls don't have money to give out to bribe their music onto the playlist. - So some of them or (most of them innocents) resort to the one form of payment that they don't need money for- God-given form of payment.

Graby Sponsors/promoters - Now these are the people that hold the key to these artistes making any kind of money from their music. And like everyone on the food chain, they need their cut. As if what they make on the side is not enough, they want it too.

Frenzied Fans - 'There is this group that believes you owe them for being your fans. So they will grab you, grapple, touch you in embarrassing places. Yet you don't want to snap at them because you have a small fan and you are trying to build it,' says one of the upcoming artistes.

Indecency - Do you ever wonder why HB Toxic's Hellen Lukoma and Nambi Brenda dress the way they do? Oh why most of us know how Margla dresses and we can't tell what she sings? Of late is like an unwritten rule that to get on stage to entertain, you have to dress in almost nothing.

Some of them have mastered the art of bad dressing to take attention from their bad singing or lack of entertainment skills. You will see many Lady Gaga clones dressed in a bikini on events that are not at the beach.
Harsh Environment

its because we lack formal structures of music that one can follow through... we also have many an artist that are not proffessional musicians.. they have not got thorough training in the field so they will resort to sex to get the 'certificate!'
