KAMPALA – Ms Barbie Itungo the wife to National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine has applauded Buken Ali commonly known as Nubian Li’s huge influence in her husband’s success story.
She showered the singer with praises for always standing with her husband in both the good and bad times.
In a Facebook post, the grateful Barbie says over the years, she has continuously thanked God for Nubian Li’s existence in the life of her husband since he is a well packaged angel sent to Bobi Wine’s family by God. She describes him as one of the unsung heroes in the success story of the NUP leader Kyagulanyi.
“Over the years, I have continuously thanked God for your existence in the life of my husband; Nubian Li. The world may never get to deeply understand what a huge influence you are to him and most of his aspects but you Taata Meha are an angle well packaged and sent to us by the almighty God,” reads Barbie’s post in part.
She explains that his presence at Kyagulanyi’s nomination at the Kyambogo University Sports grounds to run for president in the 2021 polls confirmed to her that the melodic singer is a true friend.
“Walking by your side yesterday as we took those nomination papers to the table of the Electoral commission team for Bobi Wine Presidential nomination was magical. It could have looked like a 10 minutes short activity but having you second him for the job of the Presidency made my heart warm,” she wrote.
She further shared that Uganda is blessed to have a person like him (Nubian).
“I just want you to know this morning that the Kyagulanyi’s treasure your brotherhood and friendship and we bless God for the day our paths crossed,” says Barbie.
Bobi and Nubian have been a singing ‘duo’ for over a decade and when Bobi decided to join active politics; Nubian has always been by his side.
