Hear My True Story
Being a female artist in Uganda
Show Notes

In this episode, Zoey shares her personal experiences and opinions about being an artist in Uganda and how difficult it can be for female artists who face different cultural, religious, and social expectations of what a woman should be in Ugandan society.

Imagine when people think that when a female artist goes on stage, she is a prostitute! This is because society still thinks that a woman is not a woman until she is married, gives birth to children and only works in the kitchen.

Kayendeke Zoey Patricia  is a Ugandan folklore storyteller known as #Zoeythestoryteller, poet, musician and theater maker for children and adults.  Kayendeke Zoey hails from the eastern part of Uganda. She is both a Munyole and a Mugwere. But she is fluent in Lugwere, Lusoga, a little Luganda and French. She loves the microphone and lives by biblical principles. She is a lover of Christ and a lover of people. Over the years she has learned never to condemn a soul, but to pray for them and love them with the eyes of Christ who died for them. Whoever condemns a person commits the same mistake. Don't forget to follow her Facebook page "Zoey -Thestoryteller"and YouTube channel ;"African Zoey"
