In 2017, singer Bobi Wine released a song titled Specioza. The song talks about a girl that broke the singer’s heart and moved on with richer men.
According to talk on Kamwokya streets, the song was derived from a real life story about a girl that Bobi fell in love with from Kamwokya Christian Caring Community popularly known as ‘Community’.
The girl who went by the nickname ‘Spe’ dumped him and it was then that he met his wife Barbie. According to the song, its Barbie that eventually turned him into the man he is today.
A few years later, Bobi Wine is now a big politician commanding both local and international respect, and yet another Specioza has snubbed him. But its not just a girl this time.
The former vice president, Dr Specioza Wandira Kazibwe, on Sunday left many in shock when she snubbed the singer turned politician during the burial of retired Busoga Diocese Bishop Cyprian Bamwoze in Jinja District.
“I do not just go shaking people’s hands like that. I do not know what Bobi Wine has come here for because he does not know the deceased. If you are going for a funeral, just as other mourners, come in silently and sit down. Now you (heckling mourners) are grumbling, you other mourners, Bobi Wine is coming from overseas,” Dr Kazibwe said at Christ Cathedral Bugembe.
Bobi Wine arrived at about 11am in the company of Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru, Mr Alex Mufumbiro Waiswa, the DP deputy spokesperson, and his supporters clad in the usual People Power red attire.
When contacted, Mr Kyagulanyi said he was shocked about the former vice president’s behaviour.
Mr Kyagulanyi said he grew knowing Dr Kazibwe as one of the leaders in the country and could not make such statement that “this is their thing.”
