But I can assure members that all is well and artists should start making preparations because soon we will commence the competition,” Chilaga said.
He hailed Chibuku for its continued partnership with Mum through the competition.
“In these economic challenges many companies are pulling out their sponsorship in different sectors but we thank Chibuku for being there and promising us that the music competition is still there. We just want to call upon other companies to come out and support the creative sector,” Chilaga said.
He said compet i t ions have played a crucial role in motivating artists to work hard in their music and strive to produce the best.
“We need more competitions if musicians are to do well. The Chibuku Road to Fame competition has surely been instrumental in giving upcoming artists a platform to shine but we need more of these competitions,” the Mum treasurer general said.
Some of the winners of the Chibuku Road to Fame have gone on to perform outside the country as part of their winning prize as well as recording albums.
