Singer William Otim a.k.a Bosmic Otim is now feeling the heavy load that was imposed on Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine after he was banned from performing at any show until further notice.
His ban from performing at any event or holding shows was announced by the head of security William Komakech, the Kitgum Resident District Commissioner (RDC) where he hails from.
Bosmic’s ban came after Mr. Komakech made a statement where he stressed that the singer had ventured into partisan politics which was becoming hard to differentiate him as a musician or a politician.
You can’t mix politics with music. Bosmic is a musician and also a politician. There is that element and for that matter in the element of security, there are those who love him as an artist and those who love him as a politician. Then, there those who hate him as a politician and this can bring problems. So we advised him to toe the line. He can either be a musician or a politician but not both.William Komakech
Mr. Komakech went on and issued a stern warning to event promoters against booking Bosmic for his services to perform in Kitgum and the surrounding districts.
Bosmic’s woes with security in Kitgum district are reportedly believed to have begun in June 2018 when he dropped a song titled Mac Onywalo Buru that is said to be hitting a number of top politicians in the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party in the region.
Of recent, Bosmic was jailed on allegations of staging illegal rally by Gulu Police and was later released on bond and he still has some matters to sort at the station.
