Every single day, a new artiste comes out and says something about Bebe Cool’s list of musicians he recently made acknowledging the artistes he thinks performed well in 2017.
After Eddy Kenzo, Weasel and Jose Chameleone had their verdict, now Prof. Big Eye aka Starboy has also come out and lashed back at Bebe Cool saying that he made that list out of self-interest.
The ‘I’m already booked’ artiste said that Bebe listed only those artistes who sung at his ‘Tondeka Ekiwatule’ event which is self-explanatory.
“If you notice correctly, only those artistes who performed at Kiwatule Sappe’ are the ones on that list. Maureen Nantume, B2C, Fik Fameica, Ykee Benda and Sheebah all performed at Kiwatule on Boxing Day. Those who didn’t don’t appear anywhere on that list,” he said.
Big Eye is one of the artistes in the ‘Save Uganda music’ group that was established last year to fight the dominance of West African music on the Ugandan airwaves. It is still this group that Bebe Cool dissed a few days ago saying that the group only consists of artistes who have nothing to do.
Some sections of artistes and media claim Jose Chameleone started the movement to actually save his own career and not Ugandan music while others have simply dissociated themselves from the group due to personal differences.
