It’s sad to announce the discontinuation of the broadcasts for HOT100 after twenty years of entertainment and rocking with the Ugandans.
“HOT 100FM Radio of 100.9MHz shut down its businesses over accumulated debts. They are in too many debts and failed to pay employees for some good months,” according to different sources.
The radio station has been in existence for more than 20 years and was popularly known for playing urban and a little mixture of Luga flow music.
HOT100 also passed on a grateful message to the fans that have been supporting it since the first day it started airing, listening and never giving up.
Different Ugandans and listeners also wrote down their sad comments on the departure of the best HipHop station around town.
“Will miss you. I’ve been an ardent listener since 2006. From the beginning it was a risky niche business. You did well though. 20 years isn’t a joke,” wrote Nicholas Ariho.
“Oh no! You made our campus days fun. The dial was always on Hot100. I still remember your tag line “Kampala’s Mostest Hip Hop and RnB” with funky show hosts. Big Kahuna, Lady Bizzo and Captain DMS were my favorite. You guys revolutionized Hip Hop and RnB in Uganda,” stated Emmanuel Boboli.
HOT 100 might have closed due to internal factors but it is urged that many media observers and scholars in Uganda suggest that contemporary media audiences are trending upwards in a major shift towards giant social networking platforms. This means that HOT100 might be planning for something big on the market.
