There is a bitter war raging on between singer Serena Bata and city events promoter Abbey Musinguzi aka Abtex.
Well, according to our Moles, following their bitter fallout, Abtex has since fired Serena Bata from his artist management company known as Abtex Promotions, accusing her of indiscipline.
Abtex announced Serena Bata’s firing on social media when he posted Wednesday thus;
“Serena Bata has been fired from abtex promotion after breaching her contractual obligations she was caught performing at unbooked show and smoking shisha in public!! Though already booked shows under abtex promotions will go on!! Ie radio busoga 1 show on 4th December next week Luweero’s show and all booked festival shows. Under abtex promotions we value our customers first, discipline and cultural morals.”
He followed the post with a video of people in a bar somewhere seemingly having fun as they smoke Shisha.
However, a seemingly guilty Serena Bata seems to have found herself cornered and has since begged Abtex to handle the matter in a mature manner, instead of exposing it on social media.
She replied his post by saying; “Abtex promotions I respect you in person and the whole management in particular. But I kindly request you to handle this professionally as we did from the start not on social media….. thank you”
Well, it is not yet clear if Abtex will finally forgive Serena Bata but what is certain is that her music career now hangs on the line, because Abtex is one of Uganda’s legendary music promoters with lots of connections in the music industry.
