Social media has been awash with hateful and quite hard comments, mostly coming from the Musicians’ like Juliana and BebeCool’s latest Facebook wall posts for publicly supporting President Yoweri Museveni’s 2016 Presidential bid.
On Friday a section of local musicians hosted the president in a dinner at Speke Resort Munyonyo where they claimed to launch a new song titled ‘Tubonga Nawe’ -literary meaning we are all ‘Thumbs up’ for you Mr. President. To many youths’ mostly their ardent followers, this has been seen as hypocrisy with most attacking the musicians as total ‘sellouts’
Xclusive Ug brings a feature of comments verses the statements in which they answer all their critics.
Bebe cool had this to say;
I wish to remind, correct, and guide my fellow musicians/fans who have totally gone wrong on the issue of president YOWERI KAGUTA MUSEVENI dining with artists and not talking about copyright.
The invitation cards were very clear. YOU R INVITED TO THE TUBONGA NAWE EXPERIENCE not to the copyright law dinner.”
His first reply or comment came in from Sharmm Piellar with ‘Point driven home! and another from Mulimba George who said ‘We can never be compromised by your foolish thinking to support a dictator.Sorry you musicians for being in Museveni’s armpits.’
These two comments got no replies however Xclusive Ug brings you the top biggest comments that recieved the big numbers of ‘likes’ and ‘replies
Whereas Juliana is busy using her celebrity to campaign for Museveni, other candidates are being denied a right to leave their homes to even speak to their supporters.
Anyone who supports such a system should be treated as part of that system and should be castigated.
Our country has suffered enough. Why is it that other Ugandans cannot enjoy the same rights as Juliana is enjoying? Nowadays wearing a Tshirt ofAmama Mbabazi is worse than killing a person… Why? Why? Why?
You cannot support someone who is oppressing the people and expect not to be bashed.
Please don’t take this any personal but majority of the artists don’t represent what they believe in…..wait they will also show support for other opposition members in pursuit for pocket change.
Juliana my best artist….meeting or doing dinner with the president would have been a golden opportunity to gazette the road map of music innyears to come even after you…..things to do with social protection of artists copy right…..schools of talent development and agitating for celebrity benefits since u are now ambassador s of hope to the hopeless Ugandans…..
Don’t add sentiments to this but look at what u missed out on doing at what u guys called an opportunity…. 400 million is nothing any bigger than the generations of talent to come….mwe mukadiye the world will never remember you for support ing sevo but rather your works as an artist…..u need to lay a foundation
Ugandans lets put our writings in action and bring our nation to what or a better place we want it to be..people your walalalala too much noise is not going to develop this nation…wake up lets act…PEACE.
It hurts us when you start saying “You would rather sing for 10 people who will see you beyond the lights,camera,make up. ..bla bla.
For you to start talking like that is a clear indication of BETRAYAL & SELFISHNESS.
Where was your M7 before you became what you’re right now?
Wabula mpulira obusungu!
We’re struggling to bring about change in our country peacefully and for you you’re busy blind folding the would be potential activists and later twist it in a way that makes us fools!!
What’s wrong with us having a new face of president in our country peacefully?
What haven’t we paid M7 for the Last 30 years!!
Please tell him to learn to appreciate and hand over power peacefully.
