Bobi Wine during the test ride of the mini yacht.
Bobi Wine's boat with 2 bedroom cabins, sun-bath area, toilet with a pilot console among others has been making headlines this week after Bobi and other Fire Base crew members went for a test ride last Saturday on L.Victoria.

The news of the boat was still very fresh when a rumour started circulating that the boat was actually hired for video shooting purposes and that it belonged to property moguls' daughter Sudhir Ruparelia.

In one of the shots in the gallery(Barbie On their New Yacht) there was a debate brewing as to whether this was a boat or yacht. The Ghetto Gladiator has now come out and  lashed out at those saying this is a boat and not a yacht.

"Tabloids are at it again, blinding me with their wrong and inaccurate speculations. Yes I did not buy a boat. I bough a Yacht. Go and Google it. Check out Regal Sport Yacht." The 'By Far' star was kind enough to tell all those who cared to know the cost of the boat that it cost $750,000.

Earlier reports had estimated it at $75,000. "If you are too lazy to check the price out, I will help you out. It costs $750,000." Bobi wrote on his wall. Bobi seems to be having concerns with those who prefer to call it a boat as opposed to a yacht.

According to Wikipedia, a Yacht is a recreational boat or ship.

Hoping its not the other story as what happened with the escalade' that left Kampala streets with smoke, thinking this tym he has improved on his procurement standards, Enjoy responsibly man/

Yes that's motorised yatch but not worth $750,000 like Bobi fantasizes."Bobi's" is probably worth $230,000 minus insurance,taxes and shipping.A $750,000 used boat or yatch is massive and huge.
Posted by Timon on 11/08/2012 - 03:39 PM
Wat ever! He has it and no one in his league has even a speed boat to his name on lake Victoria.love you Bobi.

Did Bobi mean Ug shs coz if not then he wasn't alone.Coz $750,000 is equivalent to 1.8 billion ug shs which i dont think he has in cash let alone buying a luxury boat.You cant be driving a $20000 Escalade and suddenly you upgrade to a $750000 boat,thats bonkers not with Ug economy.So BOBI afuneyo akalala katulimba ako tukaganye

Expensive or cheap, fact remains you got one and you are by far better than these talkers , including me wamma coz we all dont own even a mere fishing net. It was yo dream and by far came true. Nze sirina nugu, congs man.

I think Bobi has a huge physiological problem and he needs a very urgent help. Ok, let's assume that he bought it, as he claims, why does he put it on display? He needs to know that if we are to admire rich people, we go to Murwana, Wava, bitature, etc. not him who is just a maskerader. We only want one thing. Music which he can't give. Also the woman he married, is not serious. Instated of advising her husband, she is also fighting for cheap populality. She has become immune to embarrassment perhaps because of the marijuana she also takes.

Bobi grow up---we don't wanna know how much you bought that watever yatch or boat---its yo' business n life. Enjoy naye stop kwelaga abantu bakoowu and many guys are step ahead ov you-very rich and educated than u think u're, naye they don't talk and behave like wamalaayo----ago malo man--Kuula and stick 2 yo music.
Posted by Liu on 12/08/2012 - 02:34 PM
bobi, if u actually believe and think you spent $750,000 then you have a bigger problem that needs evaluation, because for one, you do not have 1,800,000,000 to spend, no you do not. limba balala!!!

Posted by Ghetto representative jack on 13/08/2012 - 08:04 AM
Really Bobi you mean your boat ooops yatch is more expensive than the house u live in ??????????Naye mulekele awo okutulimba
Posted by momo on 13/08/2012 - 10:01 AM
You can get a person from the village but you can't get the village out of him. Now, this is a fair description of Bobi and his wife. This couple wasn't brought up but just grew up! I hear reality show in deep in Magere ! Don't you have people to tell you that you are a laughing stock in town? This couple needs serious help.
Posted by Atuheire Maxwel. on 13/08/2012 - 02:36 PM
Guys, whether Bobi has or not, this is his life. Those who appreciate should and those who don't shouldn't. Come on guys, this is their show biz industry. Its like an art of war in the music industry be it in Europe, America and so on. So, let the guy take up his space and show off. Nothing personal guys

tell them you by far
Posted by shamo shafik on 14/08/2012 - 06:46 AM
@Kim, it's a show biz industry but it's also good to show what is yours! Bobi wine should concentrate on making good songs and videos. Not money or property. Because if it's a wealth contest, in Uganda he is not even in the 100000 rich people. Let him concertate on music.
Posted by Tweheyo Justus. on 15/08/2012 - 01:47 AM
That boat can be had for less than 60.000 U$
Posted by Merambe on 15/08/2012 - 03:38 AM
Bobi, U are by Far de Hottest Ugandan musicians. tell these Noisy, lazy "Brothers" U inspire me with ur songs. Keep going.
Posted by Moore sam on 15/08/2012 - 08:03 AM
Those words of yours are the ones that put you in trouble!!!! who asked you for the prize of that so called "Boat?" people don't show off like you style up!!! concetrate in developing your music for international consumption and not for those boats!!! remember the Bumper of your sickly Escalade!!! was that Escalade worth the prize you told us? this is why people doubt the "proclaimed boat" please change on your life style.

hey Guys know ur current status before u start writing nonsense about him, he made it.its his life so style up
Posted by sam on 16/08/2012 - 08:25 AM
Congs, but that lake navigator will not give any help to your fans or the public to make your name more popular, do some thing will improve your income and help the public. dont rely on music alone.invest in more than going for luxury. it must be up to some limit. think about the future.
Posted by William on 18/08/2012 - 12:25 AM
@Kim much as you love their show biz you should be genuine, honestly in ur right mind do ubelieve he paid that amount for that old boat? Crap, leave alone wether he bought or rented, that old thing can not coast that much, if u add transport, and tax hmmmm, what bothers me it to assume that we r all fools in their pockets. And its not a yatch its a boat, period.
Posted by Space on 18/08/2012 - 03:15 AM

Posted by moses watuulo on 22/08/2012 - 05:06 AM
I think it is bobiwine himself or his woman posting the praises on here. Bambi this particular stunt involving the boat has been a massive flop. Be a bit more original next time.
Posted by Nuhu on 22/08/2012 - 09:10 AM
Maybe he's coming to UK to visit the child he fathered with another woman.

Bobi, please work towards improving yo music, yo records are very terible these days. The beats, the rythm...etc all rotten. For the property, dont mind, we shall see and know it eventually; you dont need to be reminding us all the time. You're recognised in music not property. I don't find yo music interesting anymore. Pliiiiz Improve it
