Prior to his sold-out Kyarenga concert at Busabala beach last month, Bobi Wine was warned not to involve politics in his performances but we all know that Bobi Wine and Robert Kyagulanyi the Member of Parliament (MP) are the same person. There is no way he can do without politics and thus went ahead and threw a few jibes at the president and others.
This might be the reason why he is going through the situation he is right now. Bobi Wine has been stopped to perform anywhere and his one love beach stopped from hosting events.
His efforts to make a performance in Jinja over the weekend met a dead end as police intervened and arrested some of his fans. He just escaped being arrested and with this, he has come out and called upon fellow artistes as well as entertainment bodies to help him earn what he went to school for.
“I call upon my fellow artistes to raise their voice. To know that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. What the regime is doing to me can do to anybody else. I also appeal to bodies like Uganda Performing Rights Society and to remind them that my performing rights are being stifled and if there is any time for them to raise their voice, it’s now,” Bobi said.
Recently, a woman who had booked Bobi Wine for a show fainted after police rejected her cries for the musician to sing because the money she had used to organize the event was a loan from the bank.
