The organizers of Rwanda’s finest music competition East African Promoters (EAP) denied rumors looming about the changes made in coming 4th edition in showbiz.
This comes following speculations that this coming PGGSSS 4th edition will not allow any artist to compete without a full launched album.
Also in late 2013, rumors had run rampantly that artists who will be voted for three consecutive times but failed to win it will no longer be given a chance to participate in future editions.
All the above speculation was rubbished by CEO of the East African Promoters Joseph Mushoma in an interview with Rwandashow.com.
“Those rumors are false because even if we consider albums, we will credit those ones launched in 2013 not this year,” says EAP Chief executive officer Joseph Mushoma aka Bubu.
He added that, this 4th edition will come with lots of changes including selecting talented artists with good knowledge of live music.
The false speculations are believed to have caused premature album launches in closed conferences by different musicians without even performances as done normally.
The list of artists launched albums without performances include Jay Polly, Green P and Paccy all eyeing Primus Guma Guma 4th edition.
In 2013, rapper Riderman won PGGSS3 and walked away with Rwf 24 million francsin cash, the competition is fully sponsored by giant beverage company Bralirwa.
The competition aims at promoting local music industry as well as promoting Primus beer brand across the country.
The competition started way back in 2011 and the first season was scooped by singer Tom Close while King James won the second edition last year.
