Singer cum politician Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu alias Bobi Wine has on Saturday met a handful of local musicians at his home in Magere.
This comes almost just months after the former Presidential candidate attacked local musicians for turning into beggars after resorting to going to Gulu and seek handouts from President Museveni’s brother, Gen Salim Saleh.
According to inside sources, the purpose of this meeting has been to sketch a way forward about the future of the Uganda Music industry.
Some of the local artists that have attended the meeting include; Bobi Wine, Nubian Li, Karole Kasita, Feffe Buusi, Nina Roz, Fik Fameica and A Pass among others.
Bobi Wine reveals
After the meeting, the Firebase crew boss revealed that the meeting was intended at keeping the artistes united towards achieving the desired goals of the creatives industry.
Bobi Wine asked the artistes to remain united and aim at improving the entertainment industry together with different brilliant ideas.
“Together, we lay down our thoughts on what we believe the future of the creative industry should look like.”
“The alternative minister of Arts and Culture Hon. Kiyaga was present to take note of our deliberations and we believe that he will channel these brilliant ideas across the entertainment fraternity for a stronger and more unifying voice,” Bobi Wine said.
Bobi reminded the artistes about how he was restricted from performing even before Coronavirus hit the country and how they should emulate his truth-speaking character and represent the voices of the people.
“Artistes need to remember that even before Covid-19 broke out, I was restricted from performing on stage because I speak the truth, but I have not died. So, they need to stand on the truth and represent the voice of their people,” Bobi added.
Since branding the Gulu entourage as “beggers”, Bobi Wine has been attacked by several artistes who have since labeled him “selfish” I response to that,” he said.
