DENG MTOTO DEGREED AS SOUTH SUDAN ARTISTS UNION PRESIDENT
2019 saw one of the most active years in the Music Industry in South Sudan, with a lot of music plays in radios, clubs and a lot of support to the artists from all functions, the promoters, fans, media houses, newspapers among others. Every weekend was a party, posters of artists all over Juba, artists performed and earned money, party after party, shows after shows was the lifestyle of music lovers, revellers and of course artists.
A lot of meetings conducted to improve the industry, a lot of meetings with radios and presenters all in the name of the industry development. BUT the best of it all came the South Sudan Artists Union announcing a one of a kind democratic channel to the big seat (PRESIDENCY OF THE UNION), a lot of artists eyed the seat, artists and fans rallied behind their candidates, to the extend some artists had to pull out to support other candidates and this was the beginning of the best for South Sudan Music Industry.
The Competition kicked off and every candidate rushed for votes, expression their MANIFESTOS and indeed it was going to be one of the most democratic voting to be ever done in the industry, but waking one morning it was CANCELED/POSTPONED without a proper reason BUT HOPING A LATER VOTING DATE, weeks passed, months past almost a year passes hoping for the day for voting.
The union had 3 FINAL contestants this include DENG MTOTO, MUGAGA ROUND, MCLUMOEX, but the latest coming in is that Deng Mtoto has been degreed as the President of South Sudan Artists Union by the Minister of Culture and Museum Madam Honourable Nadia Arob Dudi.
This took place today (07 June 2020) in the famous Nyakuron Cultural Centre at noon. In attendance were some South Sudanese artists and fellow candidates. However the former president was however not in attendance as he was said to be self isolating as he is suspected to have contracted Corona Virus.
This took majority of the artists and South Sudan Music fans by surprise as some of them rushed on social media expressing their disappointment in the decree, One famous Musician Larson Angok had to post this on his facebook page condemning the Decree
May be he have been elected by incompetent bribing artists only to be their president, not all South Sudanese artists are ware of #Deng #M being the president of artists Union, please stop spreading wrong information on Facebook while some artists doesn’t know how and when did that election happened
