Popular local musician and self-proclaimed Ghetto president Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has said he uses his music talent to promote peace, equal rights and justice.
Yesterday, Bobi Wine posted on social media calling upon Ugandans to help promote his new song, Dembe which calls for peaceful elections by sharing it on all social media platforms and by sending it to all WhatsApp contacts.
Dembe, a luganda dialect song which calls for peaceful elections and peaceful transfer of power was released at the start of the year and is barely 6 weeks before Ugandans go to polls to elect the president, parliamentarians and local government leaders.
“We started this year with a message of PEACE in Our new Song Dembe In this song I call upon all Ugandans especially the youth to desist from any form of pre or post electoral violence. I further call upon the leaders to embrace a peaceful transition of power (From whoever to whoever),” he said
Adding, “At first there were rumours that the song was banned but thanks to UCC for coming out to clear the air, I was worried. I always use my musical talent to promote peace, equal rights and justice and to communicate important messages to Society.
I am glad that the song has no restrictions now. I encourage every Ugandan to help promote this message by sharing it on all social media and by sending it to all WhatsApp contacts.”
Bobi Wine revealed that he will soon translate the song into various languages so as to effectively communicate the peaceful elections message.
