         Zarie during her mid year fiesta party
There are things money can buy and those it can't. For instance it can get you the most expensive producer and song writer but cannot buy you a hit song.Some musicians are born and such are the talented type.

Others are made through learning music in schools and universities but currently in Uganda, there is a new breed of those that want to buy their way to the top charts. TGIF today unearths those 'artistes' who have no art per say and are using more money than talent to get a song.

Zari Hassan - Zari is without doubt the biggest Ugandan musician, who  rides cars that are fuel guzzlers and cost a fortune. Although she masquerades as a singer, many people know her as one who pays that her song be played in club as she and her hubby dance away leaving their revellers to stare in disbelief.

Despite the media publicity her songs have not made it to any local charts. You want to know about Zari, It will be either about her showbiz lifestyle and wonder bum that her music.

Angela Katatumba - This supposed R&B songstress is the only daughter of the Honorary Consul of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, H.E Boney Katatumba and Gertrude Katatumba. Her parents are undoubtedly wealthy people and some of their dime and investments they have shared with her.

Although she claims to have started singing at the age of six, she has failed to command a really big following. Not recording for the best studios and advertising her songs has brought her a hit.

In fact she is known more as the British Council ambassador of climate change a role she should concentrate on and forget music if you ask me, seriously.

Mickie Wine - Back in the day, Bobi Wine injected dime in his brother Mickie Wine's hope of becoming a fully fledged singer. Year later, who knows Mickie for music and not being Bobi's brother?

Collabos with big artistes like Kenzo too have not helped him. It should be recalled that months ago, Bobi wanted to throw him out because the fella was \wasting' his money and not coming up with a hit.

HB Toxic - The former Obsessions babes should have remained in the group may be they would still be seen as singers. The group that comprises Helen Lukoma and Brenda Nambi has struggled to impress save for their sexy stage outfits.

Thanks to Talent256 whose manager makes sure they get to perform at high profile concerts and events as well as do collabos with established singers aside from the much publicized.

Henry Tigan - Suudi Lukwago, the Boston based owner of music promotion company Suudi Entertainment, was the one that brought Henry Tigan to the Ugandan Music Scene. And into his music. He did collabos with international stars like Marlon Usher but Tigan still didn't  give Ugandans that song that never leaves their lips.

Though the two later fell out Tigan had already failed to use the money that was pumped into him to make it to the top and has since been forgotten.
