David Lutalo made his feelings known when a journalist asked him whether he thinks Skin Alien has now penetrated the ranks of the big musicians in Uganda.
Musician David Lutalo has expressed his disappointment with some journalists who make unfair comparisons between old-school and young artists in the Ugandan music industry. In particular, he disagreed with a journalist’s question about whether Skin Alien had reached the same level as the big musicians in Uganda.
Lutalo explained that young artists like Skin Alien should only be compared to their peers, and not to musicians who have been in the industry for a more extended period. He acknowledged that Skin Alien is a good artist who has brought something new to the industry, but he believes that musicians of his caliber are in a league of their own.
Lutalo emphasized that there should be no competition between the different generations of musicians, and everyone should be appreciated for their unique contributions to the industry.
While it is understandable that musicians who have been in the industry for a longer time may feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, it is also essential to recognize the contributions of young and upcoming artists who bring fresh perspectives and new sounds to the industry.
Journalists should avoid making unfair comparisons that may undermine the efforts of young artists and instead focus on highlighting their unique talents and contributions to the industry. Ultimately, the Ugandan music industry will benefit from a collaborative and inclusive environment that supports the growth and development of artists across generations.
