 In a resounding display of appreciation, Teso region artists recently showered praise upon Soroti City Woman MP, Joan Alobo, for her unwavering dedication to nurturing local talent.


The accolades poured in following her conspicuous support of two major musical events in the area: Josh Rash's "Nu Epote Oputu" concert at Hyde Park in Soroti and Sparo Ug's milestone celebration of 7 years in music at the Secret Heart Hotel in Kumi town on Saturday.


During Sparo Ug's concert, several artists who graced the stage took a moment to commend the city woman MP for her unparalleled backing of the arts, drawing comparisons to other politicians who have remained notably silent on the matter. Singer Josh Rash, addressing the enthusiastic crowd, rhetorically questioned, "If my MP can do it, how about yours?" The sentiment echoed through the audience, underscoring the palpable gratitude felt towards Alobo's proactive engagement with the local artistic community.


Alobo's presence at both events, alongside the FDC party president Patrick Oboi Amuriat, further galvanized attendees, leaving them energized by the tangible support shown to the region's creatives.


Reflecting on the broader political landscape, some artists remarked on the significance of present-day support from elected officials, contrasting it with the prospect of superficial engagement in the future.


"Today the politicians are quiet, but tomorrow they will come looking for us with small money instead of supporting us today in events," noted one performer, encapsulating the sentiment shared among many in attendance.


Alobo's commitment to championing local talent not only underscores the transformative impact of political advocacy but also serves as a beacon of hope for aspiring artists in Teso and beyond.


As her proactive approach continues to reverberate throughout the region, it heralds a new era of collaboration between the realms of politics and the arts, promising a brighter future for Teso's vibrant creative community.
