KAMPALA — Seasoned entertainment critic and Dembe FM’s Talk N Talk show music critic Edward Sendi has advised Gagamel International boss Bebe Cool to stop sour-graping over Ronald Mayinja’s new presidential campaign theme song.
Sendi over the weekend during his Talk n Talk show openly told Bebe Cool to stop feeling envious over Ronald Mayinja after the former lamented how he was overshadowed by the Eagles Production singer when he was named as the main act during President Museveni’s manifesto launch last week in Munyonyo.
“Bebe Cool should stop sour-graping over Ronald Mayinja’s success over his new song that he sang for the head of state. In fact, Ronald Mayinja’s song is way much better than the rest of the artists in the NRM. So he should stop lamenting over Mayinja’s success,” he said.
Sendi added that Bebe is not even a veteran NRM cadre because there are true NRM cadres out there who even inject money in the party.
Bebe Cool recently came out and expressed his disappointment in the bigwigs of the NRM Party who fronted newcomer Ronald Mayinja’s song over his who has been in the party for some time.
Speaking to the media at his home in Kiwatule, the ‘Easy’ singer revealed how he was shocked that some NRM officials could opt for a song of a new party entrant at the expense of his which he said is a sign of unfairness.
According to Bebe, Mayinja has spent 10 years abusing Museveni and he has made hundreds of Ugandans hate the ruling government.
He says it is unfortunate that when he (Mayinja) made up his mind to join NRM, some big people in the party decided to adore him more than those loyal supporters he found around.
“There are us who have given the party our all year after year that I have at times put the party before my career and my family. There is a time I couldn’t sing in Kampala and yet that is my main business,” he said.
He said he had chosen to speak out because he feels hurt and unappreciated.
“I am happy and glad that you brought Mayinja to NRM because we need all those people but you can’t put his song before mine. People are watching and laughing at us. What they did was not right. How could you prefer a song of a new party entrant to that of a loyal cadre who has supported the party for so many years?” he queried.
