After singer Jackie Chandiru mentioned in some interview that none of her former band mates (Cindy Sanyu and Lilian Mbabazi) visited her while undergoing rehabilitation, Cindy has responded. The “Run this city” singer says she believes Jackie does not know they actually tried to visit her but where blocked by her family members. “We did try to get to Jackie but the family was like no, you are the guys that spoilt her in the industry. But drugs are too available in the industry,” she says.
Cindy further adds that promoters have also played a role in making the situation worse. “A promoter wants the best out of an artiste so if they know that there is a particular drug that works on you, they will make sure it is available. “This is because they got to know that artistes consume alot of it and mostly western videos have done a lot in marketing this, so people think it is all we do. You go to a show and it is the first thing they offer and that is how Jackie happened. The family thought the whole industry was the problem so they blocked all our efforts,” she adds.
About a music collaboration Jackie proposed, she says she is willing to work with her because she was part of her beginning regardless of how they fired her from Blu 3.
