Celebrated diva Veronica Lugya popularly known as Vinka, who is signed to Sony Records, has renewed her management contract with her bosses at the Muyenga based record label Swangz Avenue.
Vinka put pen to paper today at the Swangz Avenue during a function that was officiated over by Benon Mugumbya, one of the proprietors of the record label.
It should be noted that although she is signed to Sony Records, Vinka maintains a management contract with Swangz Avenue, meaning they are still deeply involved in her music career.
Vinka has been managed by Swangz since 2016 and in 2018 she signed a long-term recording deal with Sony.
This is however contrary to previous rumors that Swangz Avenue was planning to cut ties with its older artists after they renewed Winnie Nwagi’s contract in 2020 as soon as Azawi was signed to the label.
Meanwhile, we recently revealed that Nwagi is currently on suspension by her bosses at Swangz Avenue reportedly over gross indiscipline, which has seen her spend a long time without releasing any new song.
We are told that in a bid to tame Nwagi’s ego and further de-horn her, the Swangz Avenue bosses last month signed up a new artiste identified as Josephine Nakyoonyi aka Zafaran, whom they are grooming into a diva like they do for all the artistes signed under the label.
