KAMPALA – Musician Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine is set to stage a music performance dubbed Kyarenga Concert in Dubai after being musically inactive in Uganda for a couple of months.
Bobi Wine is slated to perform on Friday 22, March in Dubai alongside Nubian Li.
The two will be travelling together for their most anticipated Middle East Musical concert held at the Grand Excelsior Hotel.
Meanwhile, after the Dubai concert, he will be taking Kyarenga extra concert to South Africa where he will perform in three major cities.
Recently, local authorities had banned all Bobi’s musical performances in Uganda after holding his famous Kyarenga Musical concert at One Love Beach Busabala which since then saw the singer fall out with security operatives who were claiming that he was using the musical platforms to incite violence and make political rallies.
After blocking him, Bobi Wine has since been musically inactive in Uganda. However, his blocking has greatly paved way for him to enjoy the international market and platforms that have earned him recognition given his political status.
Early this year January 19, Bobi Wine put up a powerful performance at the 2019 annual Rebel Salute Reggae Festival in Jamaica.
The Firebase Entertainment singer kicked of his performance with Philly Bongole Lutaaya’s “Born in Africa” and thereafter perform his songs like “Time Bomb”, “Bad Man from Kamwokya”, “By Far” and “Freedom”.
During his performance, Bobi Wine, would freestyle and lash out against the ban on his music concerts, his alleged torture while in Ugandan military detention and shooting of his driver among other issues.
The annual Rebel Salute event is the biggest reggae festival in Jamaica, which started in 1994 to celebrate the life of Jamaican reggae deejay Tony Rebel.
