Singer Juliana Kanyomozi who among other artistes graced the launch, stated that the app comes as a great relief for artistes. She noted that most artistes have attained fame but sadly, it does not reflect in their incomes.

“As an artiste, you can’t keep performing everyday to make money. You will burn out”, she stated.
