Ministry Of Health Did Not Pay For ‘Tumbiza Sound’ Remix – EeZzy

February 18, 2021


Eric Opoka alias Eezzy has accused the Ministry of Health of not paying for the remix of his popular song “Tumbiza Sound.”

Ministry of Health and Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) officials met EeZzy in December and asked him to withdraw the song and release a remix that was less contentious than the original.

The deal was that ministry of Health was going to foot all the bills but till now EeZzy has not released the song.

According to the musician, he was to send the new lyrics to the ministry of health for approval and the ministry would in turn sponsor the audio and video of the new remix.


Almost two months later, EeZzy now claims that officials from the health ministry have since ignored him despite fulfilling all the conditions they set for him.

In an interview with NBS UNCUT, Eezzy said that he lost a lot of money because the ministry asked him to withdraw the song in anticipation of the remix which has since been stalled.

“I was promised that that they will cater for the remix and asked me to pause the Tumbiza Sound. No one has called me yet yet I submitted the lyrics. I don’t know what is happening,” EeZzy said.

The health ministry’s spokesperson Emmanuel Ainebyoona denied that it had promised the musician any money.

“We asked him to write the lyrics and submit them to us, which he did and we replied to him. We are now waiting for the song. There was nothing like finances involved. We did not promise him any money,” Ainebyoona said in a phone interview.
