Famous and controversial media personality Tamale Mirundi reveals that Kyadondo East MP Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine’s political success has influenced other celebrities to tap into that fame.
While appearing on NBS TV earlier today, the self-styled media consultant and former Presidential Press Secretary Tamale Mirundi noted that Bobi Wine’s victory has facilitated the rise of other entertainers in the political spheres including Bebe Cool and Catherine Kusasira.
Over the weekend at Catherine Kusasira’s ‘Tears Of A Woman’ concert at Kampala Serena Hotel, there was a moment of embarrassment for president Museveni as local singer Ronald Mayinja sang his ‘Bizeemu’ song in his presence.
‘Bizeemu’ is a song with lyrics which comprise of majorly political topics as Mayinja sings about how the things President Museveni went to bush to fight against, including the nationwide killings, have returned to haunt his regime.
When asked about what he thinks of Mayinja’s act, Tamale Mirundi revealed that music has become of a great importance and influence in politics and politicians are using famous entertainers to execute their plans.
All these Kusasiras and Mayinjas have been a result of the interest into politics of Bobi Wine. The revolution of artistes has come. Kusasira even has a tent at her home for those who want to see the president.Tamale Mirundi
He further doubted Catherine Kusasira’s intellect saying that she wouldn’t have let a man who has sworn several times that he is against the regime to say anything in presence of the president.
I doubt Catherine Kusasira’s intellectual capacity. Why do you allow Mayinja to sing when you know he will embarrass the President? The intellectuals would then say that Catherine sneaked Mayinja in.Tamale Mirundi
