Sheebah Karungi thinks musicians are not in any way responsible for misleading and promoting the growth of immorality among young kids. The former Team No Sleep (TNS) lead star singer is out here defending fellow artists, boldly claiming that the job of raising and guiding kids falls back to their parents, not otherwise.
The 32-year-old certified entertainer is of the view that parents should crack a whip if possible and guide their children on what to do and not to copy from musicians.
Sheebah’s reaction comes at the backdrop of Hon. Member of Parliament, Sarah Opendi’s plea to the Education Ministry to ban all secular musicians from performing in High schools. Visibly irritated by the likes of Sheebah and Co, Opendi explained that the singers’ skimpy outfits and raunchy dance moves while performing in schools are worse than AIDS and Ebola combined.
However, while speaking in an interview on local television, Sheebah was quick to blast and tell the honourable off, reasoning that it is not her responsibility to ask students not to dress like her.
“I tell parents, I am not going to raise your children. They are your responsibility, so stop blaming me for their immorality,” Sheebah said.
“I left our home when I was 14 years old and I raised myself. I am in my 30s, but there are weird things students do in schools that I have never even done in my life. So parents should sit down and teach their children what is bad and what is good,“ she added.
She urged parents to befriend their children and be able to guide them towards a better future.
Lord Mayor Lukwago calls out Sheebah for her raunchy songs…
In June this year, following Sheebah’s revelation in which she disclosed how a client, who had booked her to perform at a private party, surfed her sumbie without consent, Kampala City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago came out and instead, somewhat, faulted the mess on the singer.
Erias Lukwago expressed his dissatisfaction with some of the verses in Sheebah’s songs.
“Some songs fall under categories I don’t like. Some artists have gone overboard and sing a lot of vulgar songs. Take for example Sheebah’s song that says “Jangu Onkoleko Emikolo” (It’s a line In her song titled ‘yolo’. With such lyrics, people will be tempted to explore what you sing. You are exposing yourself to the public but I am not saying that she is inviting people to do that but enticing them is bad,” he said.
Lukwago went ahead to advise Sheebah on a way forward in terms of branding.
