Many thought that Bebe Cool’s career is done and dusted after the harsh treatment he received from angry fans at the Swangz Avenue 10-year music celebrations when he was chased off stage with bottles.
But his allegiance to the NRM government seems to be redeeming him, and as we write this, the musician has been appointed as the tuberculosis ambassador for Uganda.
The Uganda Stop TB Partnership (USTP) in collaboration with their Geneva Partners United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) named Bebe Cool as a tuberculosis ambassador for the pearl of Africa.
With the new position, the musician is in the US for a high profile meeting on tuberculosis in New York at the United Nations Headquarters.
“To support the Uganda Stop TB Partnership, Ministry of Health and UNOPS in the campaign to end Tuberculosis in Uganda is a big responsibility that me and many Ugandans should embark on to save lives that are lost each passing day because of this killer disease. I am proud to take on this responsibility for my motherland Uganda,” Bebe Cool said.
In this meeting, Bebe Cool will be interfacing with international high level health funders from across the globe in a bid to lobby for funds to eradicate tuberculosis in Uganda.
As the ambassador, the Batidemu artiste is supposed to raise awareness about Tuberculosis and drawing the public attention towards its plight in Uganda.
