Afro beat singer Uncle Austin may not be launching another album in the near future. Austin was left frustrated after the low turnout at his album launch entitled Uteye Ubusambo at Gikondo Expo Grounds, and the star believes time may not be ripe for another launch. Speaking to the media, Austin acknowledged that the venue launch may have played a major role as far as the low turnout was concerned, but also said that the preparations did not go as planned.
He said,” Yes it was disappointing. The way we toil preparing for these kind of concerts, only to be let down by the low turnouts. I don’t think I am planning another album launch soon because it will take me some time before I can recover fully. I now want to concentrate on touring the country and performing in live concerts as opposed to another project of the same kind.”
But it has been claimed over and over that Rwandan artistes have failed to master what it takes to have successful album launches. Critics have argued that musicians rush to launch their albums instead of working hard to popularize themselves.
