Ugandan musicians to vie for political seats in 2021
The battle lines have been drawn after Bobi Wine won the Kyadondo parliamentary seat with a landslide victory. In the next elections, we could see up to 10 artists vying for political posts in their respective areas.
Top on the list are Dan Kazibwe aka Ragga Dee, who gave a shot for the Lord Mayor of Kampala, but failed, Eddy Yawe (Bobi Wine's brother) who has tried twice for a parliamentary seat and failing on both occasions. The other is Afrigo Band's Rachael Magola who is going to give the Iganga Woman MP slot another try after the passing of Hon. Hailat Kauda Grace.
Magola was trounced by the late Kauda Grace. The Obangaina singer was specifically bitter with those who tried to belittle artistes following the win of Bobi Wine, no doubt, she's coming back with a bang. Hon. Judith Babirye is already in the house.
We now bring you the other artists that are likely to pick up the nomination forms come 2021;
