YAMBIO, 11 February 2013 [Gurtong] -During a meeting with Hon. George Costa Bamandara and the State Minister of Education Hon. Pia Phillip Michael, the president of the Western Equatoria Artists Association Eng. Zabi Dominic hailed the call as it shows a sign of love towards every citizen in the state.

Zabi stressed that they are currently running registration for the first ever Western Equatoria Musical Awards to be held this year.

He urged the officials to support the artists where necessary and urged the artists to work together in order to archive their goals.

Education Minister Pia Phillip Michael thanked the artists of the good work they are doing saying that all the massages they execute to the audience are educative and that it’s easy for the citizens to get massages through music faster than when government holds rallies.

He urged the musicians to identify a priority project that can help all of them as a group because no government or donor will help an individual but they will rather support a well organized group that comes up with a well planned project.

Bamandara congratulated the artists for marketing the name of the state through music and urged for unity amongst the artists of the state since they are all spreading good massages to the people.

He said musicians should be very close to their leaders more specially the government officials.

Bamandara urged the artists not to limit talents within the state alone adding that they should also travel and market their music to other states.

The artists complained of harassment by security personnel and lack of equipments.
