ENTEBBE – Mr. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssenatmu aka Bobi Wine and Nubian Li have Wednesday, March 27 left the country to South Africa where they are expected to perform at different music concerts.
Mr. Wine, who is a Member of Parliament for Kyaddondo East, and his colleagues are slated to perform on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in three major cities of South Africa including Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Mr. Wine and his team who jetted in the county on Saturday night from Dubai where they organised successful music concerts have left Wednesday afternoon, for their much anticipated Kyarenga extra show.
In Dubai, Mr. Wine stepped on stage wearing his red beret and white African wear and performed live alongside backup singers.
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 off his performance with Philly Bongole Lutaaya’s “Born in Africa” and thereafter performs 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.
