The local music industry witnessed history this weekend as revelers packed Kololo Airstrip for the Eddy Kenzo Festival.

Several local musicians played with international performers such as Mampi , Harmonize, and Melody, among others.
The concert was a huge success for Big Talent Entertainment’s boss, who stated that he did not pay any local artists to perform.
Crystal, who has had a quiet year musically, wants the musicians to be as united as those who played at Kenzo’s festival.
His disclosure appears to have sparked fresh ideas for Crysto Panda.
And he now wants the performers to display the same unity at all future shows with fellow musicians.
“No artist should be paid to perform at a fellow artist’s event.” Panda
His plan appears to have sparked conflicting reactions, with some other musicians wondering how they will make a living if they perform for free every time.
Many of Crysto Panda’s followers questioned him on how artists could make a living if they always performed for free.
It should be mentioned that for most local artists who have not embraced selling music on internet streaming services, performances are the primary source of income.
