Bobi Wine is the latest celebrity to embarrass a fan on social media after Pallaso got into a bitter exchange with another on Twitter a few weeks ago. The Kyadondo East Member of Parliament lost his cool when a fan demanded he stops using Luganda in his posts.
It seems celebrities have now resorted to giving fans a bit of their own medicine. Usually whenever a celebrity posts something on social media, a group of fans will always comment inappropriately, sometimes even with insults and irrelevant replies. Being role models, celebrities usually let it go and decline to retaliate to such comments.
That patience however seems to be dying out and celebrities are now ready to go man-to-man with those notorious fans who make it a point to always criticize them negatively. A few weeks ago Pallaso blasted a fan on twitter, and now Bobi Wine did the same thing, in a much honorable way this time however.
In the build up to a certain event, Bobi Wine posted tickets to the show while letting his fans know he is ready and set for the event. He also informed them that his wife Barbie Kyagulanyi would grace the show and she was in preparations to find a dress for the event. He made the post of Facebook, in Luganda with the caption;
Mukyala Onalebo tegeka ekiteteeyi kyo kiri ekya Veeve ongololere n’essuuti yange eya kawemba, enkya #TugendaMuKikadde. Abaffe, awo ntesezza bubi?
Shricko Ramadhan, one of his die hard fans commented on a the Facebook post demanding that he always puts his communications in English since some of his followers are not Baganda and do not understand the language. The fan said;
Use English so that everyone understands, not all your supporters are Baganda.
That is when a seemingly irritated Bobi Wine immediately replied saying;
This message is for my wife and she understands Luganda, thank you!
