Music Artists call for Gossip TV Shows to be brought back To their time

Music artists have criticized the directive by Uganda Communications Commission instructing Gossip TV Shows to air only between 10PM and 5AM.

Music artists have called out for Gossip TV shows to be brought back to their initial time.

Last week, Uganda Communications issued a new directive instructing all TV Stations in the country to push all their shows portraying gossip to the time between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM.

The decision, according to UCC, is supposed to protect sections of the society from some of the sensitive content aired on these shows which sometimes may include semi-nudity and obscene language.

“We have segments of our society that need to be protected. Information that has sexual innuendos, for example, has to be aired past the watershed period (10 PM to 5 AM). This doesn’t mean you (media houses) should share x-rated content,” UCC spokesperson Ibrahim Bbossa said on Thursday morning while appearing on NBS TV.

A section of artists including Gravity Omutujju and Lil Pazo has called out the decision saying that the shows were a way for them to promote their brands which they cannot do effectively now.

“I used shows like Uncut to promote my shows. I call upon UCC to revise its decision,” Gravity Omutujju said in an interview.

Music analyst Eddy Sendi criticized the decision and said that a meeting should be held to revise it.

“I think UCC used an axe to kill a mosquito. A meeting should be held to review the decision,” Sendi explained.

Some of the TV Shows that have been affected by this new directive include NBS’s Uncut Kalakata, BBS’s Roundabout, Spark TV’s Live Wire, Baba TV’s Poko Poko, and ABS TV’s Evening Zone among others
