Everyone knows that on Thursday the 18th of February 2016 which is only 10 days from now is the day Uganda will have her general elections. To those who don’t know, where do you stay? Being an election season, some local artistes are among people who have enjoyed the season because of being paid to perform at campaign rallies of some candidates.
“ To all my fellow artists doing campaigns, your voice is very strong in this nation and that’s why you get paid by politicians to sing their praises, please use the same voices to create awareness about the plight of common Ugandans. No one is going to represent your people if you don’t. You now have the leaders’ audience, TELL THEM THE TRUTH.” Bobi shared a message of advice to his fellow artistes.
We have so far seen the ‘Tubonga Naawe’ artistes, likes of Chameleone, Bebe Cool, Weasel, Juliana, King Saha and others who came up with a song ‘Tubonga Naawe’ that is dedicated to HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. From then, these artistes especially Chameleone, Bebe Cool, and Weasel have all along been attending and performing at Museveni’s rallies.
Bobi Wine this year released a song ‘Dembe’ which is full of a message urging Ugandans to vote in peace and leave alone the violence which will lead the country nowhere.
