However, Sanyu FM’s youthful “Breakfast” show host Eth Lawinsky proved that he does not belong to that group of millennials who regard themselves of the uptown class which doesn’t love local foods.

When asked to name his favorite dish, the “Mwoli” singer shocked the listeners and co-presenter Patrick Salvador when he ditched all the fancy and fast foods and revealed that his best dish is pounded cassava leaves and groundnuts.

The entertainment industry is one of the sectors that was badly hit by the Covid 19 pandemic, with close to five months out of business Ugandan deejays have come out and asked government to allow them resume work like other sectors.

Through their social media platforms the deejays have started a campaign named ‘Save The Deejay’ demanding to get back to work.

“Five months, no work. Landlords have started kicking us out of houses; we can no longer put food on our tables because Ministry of Health thinks bars can’t follow SOPs. Has the Ministry even taken time off to come up with SOPs for Bars #We also want to get back to work,” Deejays shared on their media platforms.

In mid-March during one of the Presidential address on Covid 19, the President issued a directive banning all public gathering as one of the preventive measures to curb the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.

A move that financially strained the deejays since their livelihoods the bars and events were put on a standstill.
