It has been reported that Bobi Wine’s latest ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ song has been banned from getting airplay by regulator body Uganda Communications Commission (UCC). It is said that UCC did this because the song is inciting violence but according to Pamela Ankunda, a publicist at UCC, the allegations are false.
“All that is not true. We don’t know where it’s all coming from,” she said.
This came after reports appeared on social media claiming that UCC Executive Director Eng. Godfrey Mutabazi had issued a directive to all broadcasters against playing the song as well as people having it on their phones.
“Radios or TV stations that are going to play Bobi Wine’s new song ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ are at risk. That song should not be played anywhere, it’s treasonous and it disturbs the peace of the president. I even warn those who have it on their phones, we can track you and you will be forced to answer some questions,” one of the local media outlets through their facebook platform quoted Eng. Mutabazi.
The just released song has so far reached 557,000 views on YouTube and has been ranked highly since its release a few days back among Ugandan songs.
