J Kazoora – Work and Experience
David J Kazoora is one of the celebrated entertainers in Uganda’s entertainment industry. His career began while he was still young, from nursery school he was always the best entertainer.
Although Kazoora is a great entertainer, he says he cannot do comedy because it’s a difficult field of entertainment. Kazoora says it’s extremely hard to make people laugh.
However, he enjoys comedy skirts especially from Pablo, Alex Muhangi, Salvador, and MC Snake.
J Kazoora says his first job as a Television Presenter Jam Agenda, an entertainment show airing on WBS; he used to earn UGShs20.000 per show. He made the revelation while appearing on NBS TV’s Uncut Sabula a celebrity talk show until he left the screens and joined events organization among other things notably production.
Kazoora was responding to Sheilah Gashumba’s rants over her 50,000 Uganda shillings pay per show the time she worked as a presenter on NTV Uganda via her twitter handle.
Sheilah Gashumba exposed NTV and other media houses for paying little money to its workers. She confirmed that most employees in the Media industry are poor and she doesn’t look exactly like their brands.
The statement made by Sheilah brainstormed many different people who thought that presenters earn a lot.
In this case, Kazoora sided with the station and dropped a bombshell that back then when he was still the Jam Agenda presenter, he used to earn She20.000.
“I used to earn Shs180.000 plus other benefits, of course, it was okay money because of the platform the show gave me,” he said while being interviewed on NBS Uncut.
Kazoora further stated that instead of presenters coming out to cry of little pay, it should be the producers, cameramen, and other technical guys because they do all the work that we see on the screens.
However, Kazoora says he was letting Sheilah know that attacking her former station was not the right move. That aside, Sheila was getting UGX 100 thousand for a 30-minutes show, which Kazoora believes was good pay.
