Ghetto president Bobi Wine has been winning people’s hearts over with his rebranding but today he took it a step further when he launched the Bobi Wine foundation which aims at empowering the youth.
Today we welcomed the #Kamwokya community and honoured guests from the US Embassy, the Henhouse Prowlers (bluegrass band that sing Sitya Loss), the Ugandan Church / Nkozi Hospital and the Ugandan Youth Ministry to our #GhettoYouthCentre. We wanted to show Ugandans that #GhettoYouth are not idle criminals. They are capable of developing themselves, Bobi Wine said.
Very often the ghetto youth have been viewed as criminals but the singer is all about changing the mentality. He helped create a platform on which the youth showcased their skills in music, art, crafts, boxing, mechanics and so many others.
The singer who was hosted on NTV the beat alongside the Us Ambassador to Uganda further told the host Douglas Lwanga, ‘our role models were making a difference when they were young. We’re our own miracle. The first step is believe in yourself! Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you.’
A few months ago the Sema singer revealed on Dembe Fm that he is working on building his new image that will help people grow with positive beliefs. Bobi said that he has rebranded into edutainment music because he wants his music to work as a tool of communication to Ugandans. Looking at his transformation, one wouldn’t wish for a better mentor, he has positioned himself as a thought leader when it comes to issues with the youth mostly. He has more than proved that he is a worthy leader.
