Bebe Cool responds to Bobi Wine's comments on Gen Saleh and artistes, brands him

Singer Bobi Wine real name Robert Kyagulanyi yesterday made a Facebook post condemning Ugandan artistes who went to Gulu to meet with Gen Salim Saleh for COVID-19 relief funds. 

Bobi Wine condemned them for begging for money from a government that has allegedly sent them into poverty by banning shows and concerts. 

However, his ex-friend and fellow singer Bebe Cool has said that all the artistes who went to Gulu did not meet Gen Saleh but Chief Coordinator for Operation Wealth Creation whose mandate is to include all Ugandans into the money economy. 

A money economy is that which is characterised by the use of money as a medium of exchange and store of value rather than barter.

Bebe Cool says that before Operation Wealth Creation was put in place, about 70{a6adf960b9dc55bb3e49ff07c82daa20469ae533cf096e1b9d27878361bb9db5} of Ugandans were living outside the Money economy but the number has now reduced to 39{a6adf960b9dc55bb3e49ff07c82daa20469ae533cf096e1b9d27878361bb9db5}. 

Additionally, he narrated that the highest percentage of Ugandan musicians under different associations are still living outside the money economy.

“About 80{a6adf960b9dc55bb3e49ff07c82daa20469ae533cf096e1b9d27878361bb9db5} of stakeholders live outside of the money economy hence the need to meet the general, discuss the challenges in the industry and also lobby for funds which have always been channeled through UNCC/F. I personally have met General Saleh and the president to discuss the challenges in our creative arts industry, not forgetting my personal issues too….” Bebe said.

“I, therefore, want to correct my young brother Bobi Want on his ignorant post that whatever funds artistes get from the general are not handouts but rather entitled financial relief. ” Bebe Cool added.

Accordingly, Bebe Cool has criticised Bobi Wine for not helping the creative and arts industry during his term in parliament as the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament. 

“Our brother was once in Parliament but never presented a single Private Members bill on the creative arts industry in parliament,”  Bebe Cool said.

The “Nkuliyo” singer believes that Bobi Wine is condemning the artistes for receiving money because he saw his music competitor Jose Chameleon leading the group.

“…I know you have always seen artistes meet general Saleh but you chose to post negatively this time because it was not just Artists meeting General Saleh but rather Dr Jose Chameleone who is your direct lifetime music competitor.” He said

Just like a number of Ugandans, Bebe Cool has also termed Bobi a selfish person who begs for funds from foreigners but does not want his other Ugandans to the same.

“Today you travelled to solicit for funds from foreign funders for your personal benefit yet you know they have to get paid back at the cost of Uganda’s peace.” Bebe said.
