The campaign has been on since 1st December and will end on the 8th of this very month. HIV testing has been part of the activities to in the drive including holding placards with messages against the scourge.
According to Ntinda based Sikia Media Services personnel manager Asaba Emma, the fact that people consider artists role models, Kyagulanyi and others’ input in the campaign is key in spreading the message about living responsible lives and creating awareness.
“It is good that Uganda’s top artists are part of the campaign, the position they hold in society gives them the charismatic advantage to influence how people live since many people look up to them for inspiration,” Mbanza Paul a teacher at Namirembe Hillside said.
RAHU CEO and NBS TV Youth Voice presenter Humphrey Nabimanya also hailed the move by artists to come on board saying as models in society, “Their impact is always identifiable because of the value people attach to their influence”.
