Many music lovers put their political affiliations and camp rivalry between Firebase and Gagamel aside to appreciate Bobi Wine’s ENSASAGE MU NYUMBA Quarantine Special 2020 Concert which left many impressed.
Bobi Wine’s display straight from his Magere home also known as the’ White House’ among ardent fans, was so on point that, even many people who confessed to belong to different camps parallel to his, loved what they saw. Last night.
From production to the way Bobi presented himself as he performed everything looked perfect as the composed singer and politician churned tunes from way back when he started his career over a decade ago in the ghettos of Kamwokya, to the latest ones that carry heavy political connotations.
Bobi Wine, real name Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, walked on the set a few minutes after 9pm dressed in a black shirt and black trouser accessorized with red suspenders and a James Bond bow tie. He sat on a high counter stool, and straight away went into business.
His partner in crime Nubian Li was already waiting alongside the Solid band and off they kicked on with a brief intro from the main man beaming with a wide smile “Right now welcome to show time with Solid Band…” He then sang about, Xenophobia and racism, Coronavirus, Independence in Africa, Pan-Africanism, Democracy, Love and many other topics.
The production was eye catching with the luminous lighting on the building providing a colorful backdrop. The greenery and fireplace provided a spicy natural home setting and fresh look.
Surprisingly, the sound was also clear despite being a live band streaming live on line. Bobi and his companions looked sober and composed throughout and going by the comments on several platforms, those who followed the show were impressed. Here is what he had to say after the show and a selection of a few comments from online.

You are well known and admired around the globe. You are also best qualified to bring Uganda back as Africa leaders in #HumanRights and more.
