Singer Uncle Austin
Uncle Austin has again re-ignited the long feudal rivalry that has long existed between him and other artists in Afro beat music by declaring he was the most outstanding artist in 2013. The outspoken musician-cum-radio presenter is among the nominees in Salax Music Awards in best afro beat category.
Speaking to a local showbiz magazine, Austin declared that his album Uteye Ubusambo, was the most successful as it contained the highest number of songs than any album released that year. Indeed Austin’s assertion will not go well with most of his rivals.
Already a row had been brewing since mid January when Austin and Mico The Best exchanged words during the unveiling of the nominees of this year’s Salax Music Awards at a gala night held at Hill Top Hotel and the former’s comments will only add weight to this long standing rivalry.
And Austin didn’t end without adding a satirical quip to his statement that in ten years’ time he will have amassed an equal number of fans as those of Uganda’s and East Africa’s music sensation Jose Chameleone!
