MUKONO - Betty Nambooze the Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament, has asked parents to encourage their children interested in Music, dance and drama to take it on up to the professional level.
Nambooze said most parents only look at academic excellence and leave out talent like performing arts.
"Not every child is supposed to become an academician, some are super talented and could make a living through their talents," she said
Nambooze pleaded with parents to support their children interested in performing arts to take it on even up to university because it might fetch them money in the future.
"Today the president of Uganda is choosing artists like Catherine Kusasira, Butcher man and Full figure to advise him on different state issues which shows that artists are bright people'' Nambooze says
