Doctor Bitone is currently admitted after being thumped to pulp by unknown assailants who attacked him on Tuesday night while on his way home. The singer nearly met his creator but was saved by a good samaritan who found him badly injured and unconscious.
There has been a wave of crime sweeping across the country with celebrities being targeted for quite a while now. The country has lost many artistes, producers, and other celebrities all to unknown goons whose intentions have not been discovered yet.
From AK47, to Danz Kumapeesa, to Mowzey Radio, among other celebrities, lives have been lost awkwardly. This year alone, Mowzey Radio died in February after a bar brawl in Entebbe, and local singer Chris Evans Kaweesi was also attacked by unknown assailants who nearly took his life.
Now the latest victim of these criminal gangs is another local singer, Doctor Bitone real names Denis Bitone, who was attacked and brutally beaten to near death by yet to be known assailants. It is reported that on Tuesday night, on his way home, the singer was ganged up by people who beat him up and left him for dead.
He was only helped by a good samaritan who found him later and rushed him to hospital. Dr. Bitone has since been admitted to Kiruddu Referral Hospital where he is still in critical condition but responding to treatment. He still suffers head and body injuries and is in great pain.
Doctor Bitone is widely known for his singing style and voice that is similar to that of legendary singer Jose Chameleone.
Get well soon Bitone.
