When he hinted on it a while back, we thought he was only joking. Yesterday however, singer Bobi Wine has decided to take matters into his own hands, dragging the electoral commission to the courts of law for allegedly using his song without his consent.
Bobi Wine says that the commission used his ‘Obululu’ song to relay messages during the just concluded general elections without his knowledge and consent. This as per the constitution is an infringement on the copyright law.
In the song, the artist maintains that elections are an essential process in the development of the country and advises Ugandans to exercise their right to vote for their preferred candidates, the exact message Electoral Commission used while advocating for people to exercise their freedom to vote.
It is said that Bobi Wine discovered that a substantial portion of the content of his song was incorporated into and released as part of the advertisement by the electoral body. However, by press time our attempts to reach the self-proclaimed ghetto gladiator were ineffective as he refused to comment about this but what we are so sure of is that he won’t let go of this until justice is served.
