According to Richard Kaweesa, the president of the Music Forum, an organisation that aims at reforming the lives of musicians, Ugandan gospel artistes don't want to cross over to genres that are demanded by the audiences they are targeting.

One of these is Richard Kaweesa.As one of Uganda's shinning stars, Kaweesa's voice is important in this debate.He is the president of the Music Forum, a lobby organisation that has been formed to push through reforms that would make the life of musicians better.He has been called the unofficial Member of Parliament of musicians.
He is one of the many artistes who made the pilgrimage to Nairobi at the start of his career and made it big with songs like Omulunyanja.Recently, he has been more associated with the funky East Africa Hakuna Matata, a short techno-rave track that tells of the beauty of the people of East Africa.
"Ugandan gospel artistes don't want to cross over to genres that are demanded by the audiences they are targeting," he says."They have stuck in the past and they think the public still wants to hear church hymns.They should borrow a leaf from artistes like Kirk Franklin who have accepted the forces of change.We should remember that if we want to move the public with the message in our music, we must package it in an agreeable way so that they will listen."
Julius Mbabazi, an avid music collector seems to think Kaweesa has a point.
