Singer Wycliffe Tugume alias Ykee Benda has officially been appointed the acting president of the Uganda Musicians Association after the now former president Sophie Gombya threw in the towel. Sophie handed in her resignation letter over yet to be known circumstances.
The sudden handing over of the presidency if the association has therefore seen her Deputy President UMA, Ykee Benda take over the office before the association votes its new leadership which is expected later this year.
Sophie’s primary reason for the resignation has with no doubt been her prior dream of running as Kampala Central’s Lord Woman Councillor in the forthcoming electoral season.
Various artists, presenters and media personalities have congratulated Ykee over his new post.
