KAMPALA: To challenge Bobi Wine’s People Power, NRM’s music promoter Balaam Barugahara, the proprietor of Balam Promotions has said he intends to organize ‘Tunyweze Engule’ concert to rival Tuliyambala Engule’ song which is popular among Bobi Wine’s supporters.
Early this year, Bobi Wine launched his ‘Tuliyambala engule’ song in which he stung government for not providing the desired services to its citizens.
Barugahara said, he is organising what he termed a hit- maker concert for President Museveni.
“I am not a song writer but this time round I wrote one an entire album with 6 songs that we are currently working on with him (Museveni),”Barugahara said yesterday in Kololo in Kololo while addressing journalists.
“We are also recording videos and we shall blast Kololo. The hit-maker will be called ‘Tunyweze Engule’ that I have organised for President Museveni,” he said.
Using exact words as commonly used by Bobi Wine, including ‘Twebeereremu’, the music promoter said the concert will be a blast and will show who is more powerful, between Museveni and Bobi Wine. He did not announce the date of the concert.
People Power’ is a rising political movement that brings together various political activists, politicians and civic players that campaign for a change in Uganda’s political leadership.
“The real people power is President Museveni because he is the choice for many people. The only person with people power is one voted and in this case president Museveni who was given the highest number of votes in the 2016 polls. I don’t talk of Kyadondo, Ntinda or Nakawa but entire Uganda.”
Barugahara said that through the headline song ‘Tunyweze Engule’, he will be rallying Ugandans to keep hold of the revolution values and appreciate what Museveni has done for Uganda.
“I am not a politician but I want to protect our crown (engule) from people coming from nowhere to tag along it. We are people power majority and we shall vote for Museveni,” he said.
Since 2017 when he was elected the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi under the People Power, a pressure group with no well-defined leadership structure has ratcheted up pressure on the NRM government, attracting the support of the mainly unemployed youth and catapulting Kyagulanyi to national and international stardom.
Bobi Wine recently announced he would stand for presidency in the 2021 presidential election.
