Not like he wasn’t making news before but ever since musician-turned-politician Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi commonly known as Bobi Wine became Kyandodo East Member of Parliament, the number of times he was making news multiplied by ten.
Even before he was beaten and arrested by security forces in Arua last week, it is conspicuous that the self-proclaimed Ghetto President has been making every news headline. We don’t want to go back in the news of what happened in Arua. If you still don’t know, where do you live?
From the time Bobi was beaten and arrested, there has been unrest in Kampala and other suburbs, as the whole country is requesting the government to “Free Bobi Wine“. One artiste Pallaso decided to come up with a song that advocates for the release of Bobi
He starts the tune produced by producer Eddy Dee making a point of how he needs to express his feelings and opinions about the current situation involving Bobi Wine, before he repeatedly chants ‘Bamuleke’ which is Luganda for ‘Free him/her’.
He points out the fact how ghetto people, uptown people young and old are crying following Bobi Wine’s brutal arrest. Pallaso begs the government to free Bobi Wine as a sign of peace and freedom which the ruling NRM government claims to have brought to the Pearl of Africa.
In more lines, Pallaso humbly calls upon Ugandans not to give up before disclosing that Bobi Wine is loved because of the plenty of ideas he has. He also calls upon Ugandans not demoralize him and the fans who want Bobi Wine to be released.

Meanwhile, Pallaso’s ‘Free Bobi Wine’ comes in a few days after his elder brother Jose Chameleone penned an emotional letter to president Museveni to kindly forgive Bobi Wine.
“Bobi Wine has over time exhibited his leadership admiration. Just Like any young ambitious man, he has treaded a path of aggressiveness.Your excellency,Our brother, Your son Bobi Wine could have gone wrong on execution of some of his ideologies.As head of state and forefather, It’s a great one too to lead us in example of forgiveness and reconciliation as” read part of Chameleone’s letter.
