There is a saying that behind every successful man, there is a strong woman. Well, this saying applies to Ugandan musician turned politician, Bobi Wine who had nothing but praise for his wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi Itungo while talking to the media on Tuesday.

Speaking in a TV interview after being duly nominated to vie for the presidential seat come the 2021 general elections, Bobi turned emotional as he thanked Barbie for helping him get to where he is right now.

“I do not know what to say about my wife Barbie. She has fought several battles for me and I believe would not be here if I did not have her support. There is nothing I can give back to her but I pray that God guides her and gives her whatever she desires,” Bobi Wine said.

During the nominations, he was escorted by his wife.
