KAMPALA. The battle between top Ugandan artistes Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine is not over yet. Bebe Cool, real name Moses Ssali now wants his music nemesis and Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) to apologize for attacking his father and wife.
Appearing on BBS Terefayina, Bebe Cool who last Friday shared a table with Bobi Wine said their music rivalry can only end if the legislator apologizes.
The artiste says at the peak of their music rivalry, Bobi Wine “crossed the line” and attacked his father, veteran politician Jaberi Bidandi Ssali and his wife Zuena.
“Now that he is grown up and a leader, let him come out and say look, I was young then but I apologize. You never know it’s what I am waiting for and we leave it (music rivalry) at that,” Bebe Cool said.
The AFRIMA 2018 award winner said much as they had their differences musically, it was wrong for Bobi Wine whom he referred to as young brother to attack his family. Bebe Cool’s demand comes at the time when music fans are in debate on whether the two musicians’ recent handshake meant reconciliation.
Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine who have been music rivals for over a decade now were invited to share a table during fellow artiste Eddy Kenzo’s ‘10years of Eddy Kenzo’ concert held at Kampala Serena Hotel on Friday. The two artistes hugged and shook hands to the excitement of the crowd that among others comprised Buganda Premier Peter Mayiga.
