Singer and Member of Parliament Bobi Wine has denied being part of the trending hashtag ‘Boycott Uganda Cranes‘ created in reaction to Namboole management’s decision to cancel his Kyarenga concert.
Following the cancellation of Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga concert by the management of Mandela National Stadium commonly known as Namboole, various sections of fans, sympathizers, and followers of the Kyadondo East MP have come out to convey the public to boycott events held at the stadium forthwith.
Part of those events are the home games which the national football team, the Uganda Cranes, hosts from the stadium. A hashtag, #BoycottUgandaCranes, has since been formulated to urge all Ugandans to desist from attending Uganda Cranes matches.
In doing so, they have tagged Bobi Wine along in the drive to show their disaatisfaction with the way their leader has been frustrated from holding his much anticipated concert.
Bobi Wine has however denied being part of the drive to boycott the national football team and he has maintained that he does not agree nor support the trending hashtag.
The legislator says that the Uganda Cranes is the national team in which Ugandans should always take pride and support with all their abilities. He urges Ugandans not to act out of anger because the Uganda Cranes need no condemnation.
He also points out that he is still pursuing a new date for his concert which will be announced soon.
