Elijah Kitaka has been working for several months on the technical side of [bleu]Fezah [/bleu] apps. The entrepreneur has decided to split his concept in two apps: one dedicated to the musicians’ airplay monitoring of their tracks, and the other allowing event professionals to book artists. Recently, the company has published a new intuitive and graphically attractive version of its website. From now on, it is possible to download Fezah apps from Apple Store and Google Play. Bright prospects are emerging for musician artists in Uganda!
