This is going to be very cynical. We are three days away from celebrating 50 years since gaining Independence. Our jubilee song right here, just maybe the true representation of what has gone wrong in this country.

Yoga Yoga is a compilation of some of the most beautiful voices that music can put together in this region. This music quality is all over the song for all to hear. But regardless of such rich talent on show, there’s little unity.

We had not even listened to the song before all manner of accusations of intrigue surfaced. In the typical Ugandan sense of backstabbing, the musicians accused each other of stealing the other’s limelight, one for instance saying they composed the song but got no credit for it.
You would think that on a jubilee song, there would be a unity of purpose; that we would just this once, put aside ego fights and the disunity and dishonesty that has characterised Ugandan life and politics.

But we did not.
So, in the case of Yoga Yoga, we have a beautiful song made of beautiful voices, but coming up short in such simple things as honesty and trusting each other.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, has been Uganda’s story these 50 years. We are a rich diverse peoples, who work together during the day, but stab each other when in the privacy of their homes. Yoga Yoga  could not have been a more apt jubilee song.
