If you are a newcomer to the world of music, you may have many questions of how the already established artists made it, how you will start out or make it work, stay relevant and stand the criticism in this competitive world.
But have no fear, for legendary song bird, Juliana Kanyomozi is here with these words of encouragement and support to the youngsters who feel like they should give up on their dream.
“If you just joined the entertainment business, you may get discouraged by the way things are done. It’s like everyone is in it for themselves. No one seems to give you a helping hand.
“Sometimes you’ll get rejected as you try to maneuver your way to the top, but how much you believe in yourself will be key to determining how far you can go.
“Just remember, rejection doesn’t mean you are not talented enough, it just means that that particular opportunity was not meant for you. Be encouraged and know that your time is coming.” Juliana said
Kanyomozi was the first female musician to win the Pearl of Africa Music Awards (PAM Awards) ‘Artist of the Year’ accolade. In 2008, she made her film debut in Henry Ssali’s Kiwani: The Movie.
In March 2014, she signed with international cosmetics company Oriflame to be one of their East African brand ambassadors together with Lady JayDee of Tanzania and Jamila Mbugua of Kenya.
In 2011 she was nominated in the Pan Africa Artiste or Group category at that year’s Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA). In December 2015, she won a lifetime achievement award in Diva Awards Afrika.
The singer has had a successful solo career and many collabos both local and international.
