Oh, Bobi Wine is at it again! This time, he’s accusing President Museveni of using the Uganda Musician Association (UMA) to stifle his growth as a musician and cripple the industry. Well, that’s one way to explain your lack of success in the music industry, Bobi Wine.
According to Bobi Wine, President Museveni and his brother Salim Saleh are threatened by artists as potential political rivals, so they want to keep them impoverished. And here we thought it was just bad lyrics and lack of talent that were the reasons why some musicians didn’t make it big.
Bobi Wine claims that UMA, which he helped establish and where he served as the first secretary-general, has been reduced to fighting him instead of uniting artists for their mutual benefit. We can only imagine the drama that goes on behind the scenes at UMA meetings. It’s like a scene from a bad reality TV show.
And of course, Bobi Wine has endorsed King Saha for UMA president, and he’s accusing the government of using a divide-and-rule strategy to create conflicts among artists. Well, we all know that the government has nothing better to do than to sit around and come up with schemes to keep Bobi Wine down.
But Bobi Wine has a message for all the artists out there: “Don’t beg Salim Saleh or any other non-musicians for help.” Oh, Bobi Wine, you’re such a comedian. We’re pretty sure that Salim Saleh is not sitting at home waiting for artists to come and beg him for help. But hey, it’s good to have a scapegoat, right?
In conclusion, we can only hope that UMA doesn’t become a battleground for Bobi Wine and President Museveni’s political rivalry. Because let’s face it, we all need some good music to dance to, and we don’t want politics ruining it for us.
