Bebe Cool is a guest speaker for tonight's Frontline TV show that will see panelists discuss Music and Politics
The Frontline on NBS TV tonight will feature Bebe Cool as the guest speaker discussing Music and Politics, a matter that has been of keen interest to many music pundits and lovers who seem to agree that the two don't mix.
Bebe Cool will be joined by Hon. Semujju Nganda, MP Kiira Municipality and Frontliners; Democratic Party President Hon. Norbert Mao, Forum for Democratic Change Vice Chairman for Eastern Uganda, Salaam Musumba and Uganda Media Centre Executive Director Ofwono Opondo with Charles Odongtho as the show host.
The discussion will largely focus on the recent happenings that saw the number one citizen drum up support for Bebe Cool for his Tondeka Ekiwatule show while Bobi Wine was blocked from performing for not fulfilling some conditions.
The two concerts have for the last ten years been held on the same day (Boxing Day) with both camps receiving a fairly good number of revelers.
It should be recalled that in August last year, President Museveni attended the singer's Golden Heart concert in Kololo.
On the other hand, Bobi Wine has been having issues with performing simply because of the messages in some of his songs, authorities also demand that he needs to draw a line between Hon. Kyagulanyi the legislator and Bobi Wine the artiste.
This has led to several of his shows, most of them taking place during the festive season affected, his employees at One Love Beach in Busabala are complaining about delayed or no salary following the disruptions.
This was part of the message that Douglas Lwanga, a radio and TV host wrote following the cancellation of the Busabala show as the Kiwatule show was being hyped by the President.
"We can still have fun without eliminating each other or even insulting each other because of political sides. The Music industry doesn't need this. The same freedom accorded to one Artist should be given to the other, especially if it's about Music."
"I think Music should be left to thrive alone as has always been the case. The advance of this kind of politics is not helping the industry. Music is so harmless. Let people freely go to what concert they so wish to attend."
"I pray we can get back to how it used to be. Uganda's Music doesn't need any of this. We surely don't. We just need music. Let's not drag our music industry far behind. We are killing our Music industry ourselves. This is not about which artist you support."
"Music is one Language. Music is one Race. Music is one Political Party."
