When Rachel Magoola announced last week that she was leaving Afrigo Band, a storm of public protest arose. While some thought it was a move in the right direction for her, many did not think it was a good idea. The New Vision asked a cross-section of people what they thought: I think it is good for her, although it might not be the best for Afrigo. She has been the star, and has carried the band along, so I think she will do well on her own. But I hope she will not go to Europe, because we will miss her. I look forward to going to watch her show in the future. Moses Baliraine, Computer Executive Magoola is nothing without Afrigo. She cannot go far without the band. The band made her, and her only major hit Obangaina was just a folk song till Afrigo re-did it. She might make it in Europe where people have money and like exotic music, but it will be only for a while. Without Afrigo, she is in big trouble. I hope I am wrong, though, because I wish her the best.” Edward Lukanga, Afrigo supporter and businessman I think it was about time she left. She was being overshadowed by the others. She does a lot for work, but since most of the songs are in Luganda, all the limelight goes to Joanita Kawalya. I think she should leave and do her own thing. Rose Nabirye, a shop assistant I think it was bound to happen sooner or later. It seems like there are two bands in Afrigo, with different audiences. While Rachel is a show-girl, the band plays for dancers. But I think Afrigo will survive. It has a strong foundation and has weathered many storms. As for Rachel, I think she will eventually prosper, but it will be difficult at the beginning, she has to re-establish herself first.” Ekodelel, Band leader of The Big Five and a professional musician It is a big blow. Rachel is extremely talented and will be difficult to replace. After all those years she has spent with the band, it will not be easy for them find a replacement. But the band will survive, and we wish Rachel well to explore other opportunities. Moses, a journalist Rachel is a star. She is a dancer and a singer. Not many people can do that very well. But still, it will be difficult for her, and I think she might re-join the band. After all, other people have left and re-joined it. Lydia Nabukeera “Afrigo will survive. Many people have left the band, and others have died, but Afrigo is still there. Even After Rachel leaves, the band will still be here.” James Wasula, Executive Director, Afrigo “Let her go: It’s a free world and anyone can go where they want to. So can Rachel. Affect the band? No, no. Afrigo has stood the test of time, and will survive without Rachel.” Charles Mukwaya, motor technician ends
