Bobi Wine's latest single titled 'Jennifer' has made him a subject of discussion at both KCCA and the communications regulatory body, UCC.
The Omubanda Wa Kabaka also the Ghetto president recently released a song titled 'Jennifer' which was widely believed to be a verbal attack on Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi.
Bobi Wine was quick at clearing this by saying that he was only acting on behalf of the voiceless ghetto people. On the other hand, the Executive Director was approached on the matter though at the time, she had not listened to the song and promised to do so.
Executive Director Jennifer Musisi Responds
"I have not yet heard the song yet but I will surely try to find it. If he thinks he's trying to get at me, am sorry. He's a small fish with no bones and trust me, we shall see who has the last laugh,"
UCC Issues Airwaves Order
The communication's body last week issued a 'Warning Against Misuse of Airwaves'. In a statement, the body said: "..there was a noticeable increase in negative trends ranging from outright hostility and abuse to lack of balanced discussions on airwaves, especially during political discussions,"
It added: "Some artistes and musicians have resorted to attack personalities through their songs and other works. Much as they have a right to express themselves... public airwaves should not be used to attack individuals, which may amount to defamation."
Bobi Responds to UCC
"Now, I want to advise the Uganda Miscommunication Commission to remember that they are supposed to be serving the people, not a person. Listen to what the people are trying to communicate instead of intimidating the messenger. Listen to the voice of the people. Understand, don't misunderstand....communicate, don't miscommunicate!"
Meanwhile, the Executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi has clarified that the 'Jennifer' song was not banned though they are yet to review it and will advise accordingly.

Be careful Bobi, you have the right to talk and make your Music sell as much as you wish but you are not above the Law, Music should educate people but not promote hate among citizens right. Don't be misled by the few fans and little dimes you have. We Still Love you and Care for you.

Bobi shud seriously be careful...He is not above the law neither shd he think that hes the only musician Uganda has heard.He risks having a ban on all his songs in the future if he continues to promote this hatred and defamation of the person(jennifer in this case)who has wrkd tirelessly to mek Kla wat it is tday.Bobi go bak to the ghettos wea u belong,leave Jennifr alone.

Uganda as a nation does not need people like Jennifer to move forward,wht the Ghetto Boss sung about is right and the people are facing problems in their mother Land Ghetto Boss has the right to express his freedom of speech and Educate the nation.so all Haters back off a bit.for better 2moro.

Bobi wine is right, these guys should serve the people and not individuals, should communicate and not excommunicate, twakoowa. Lets b honest and face reality, what are these leaders really doing for the country apart from sinking it. A good look at the city, what happens when it rains, look at the old taxi park, people shud learn to face reality with positiveness not cowardism.

Big up my presido Bobi Wine, nobody should scare u, there are better ways of solving situations other than dictating for the poor. Look at Kenya, everybody is happy irrespective of the developments initiated. If she can't.... Let her copy from Nairobi.

The only reason why they call him "gheto president" is because he cars for the poor people. i have not had the song very well, but i hear that it is a great hit allover the country. Big up BOBI, youre the best

Mr. president this is an advice that goes out to u ,strictly for u that the song is not bad and u are attacking any body serious bcoz to any intelligent man who listens to the song.The song is not bad but it is telling them the truth coz they even reached an extent of shooting man in luzira oh my God.we are not hindering development but it shld meet peoples needs and not hurting them like kcca is doing and devpmt takes place in a gradual process in harmless manner but those people are skipping some procedures.

A Luganda saying goes "Eyatya okwogerwako, yasigala mu zzaaliro"; interpreted as "One who was affraid of being gossiped on, died at his/her birth". For this case "Jennifer" should tolerate/bare all what is said about, her because Bobi is not the first to do this: or else should resign.

I am not a Muyenga man, just agetto man like you, but i do real appreciate what madam Musisi has done, Madam we request you to push away boda-bodas from the city, and Madam, some people have started coming back with samll boxes selling small staffs on the city streets, we ask you to strongly punish those one because they trying to spear head coming back, let your law be strong, and do not fear what that small fish is singing, he is known for his abuses, some one from getto dies a getto man no change.
But for you, you are honorable lady and your services are greater thanks very much Obeleho Madam, tukwagalanyo-nyo

Naye banange tubemu Ensa, what if it was your mother, Auncle, cousin or some body u are related too, nolaba nga bamukulusanya nga A refugee, how would u feel? I ask a person like Mathias, Development is very ok, but it's not something that Musis will do 2day en it's done by 2moro. So let KCCA show the pipo where they should do their small businesses en then clear the streets. Kintu cyangu nyo!! Big up to the Ghetto Preso!!

I believe Bobi is being the voice of the voiceless. In kenya we have the freedom to address issues through music but always remember their is a price to be paid by that act. Do what you can to make them listen. we are behind you brother.
