MP’s Express Concern Over ”Excessive Nudity” in Music Concerts

KAMPALA – A group of Members of Parliament has voiced their concerns regarding what they perceive as “excessive nudity” displayed during a music concert featuring artists Sheeba Karungi and Cinderella Sanyu.

They have criticized the stage dress code, describing it as ungodly and not in line with African values.

These MPs are now calling upon the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance to provide guidance to Uganda to prevent what they see as a slide into immorality.

Nsaba Buturo, the Bufumbira East Member of Parliament, suggested that the provocative dress code adopted by some artists may be one of the reasons why many of them fade into obscurity after leaving the stage.

He emphasized that artists should contribute positively to the protection and promotion of Uganda’s values rather than investing in nudity.

Peggy Wako, the National Female Elderly representative, urged artists to conduct themselves with grace, emphasizing that music serves as employment for the younger generation and a means of relaxation for the public.

She emphasized the importance of artists being role models.

Charles One, the Gulu East Member of Parliament, accused Ugandan artists of potentially being involved in substance abuse, which he believes hinders them from fulfilling their roles as teachers, philosophers, and visionaries.

He cited examples from countries like Singapore, South Africa, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, where artists have used their industry to develop national identity and integrity.

Charles also expressed his discomfort with the level of nudity displayed during performances, highlighting that such behavior tarnishes reputations and sets a poor example for future generations.
