Zuena Kirema says her husband Bebe Cool’s first car was not such a dream car as they always suffered using polythene bags (buvera) on rainy days.
Today, Bebe Cool cruises in posh cars around the city having managed to earn his lifestyle through his music for a period of over two decades.
That, however, was not the case several years ago when he purchased his very first car – a black Golf, according to his wife Zuena Kirema.
In a story revealed by the mother of five on Thursday morning, Bebe Cool who sought to emphasize showbiz in the industry bought his first car at Ugx400,000.
“When I had just met my husband, he was driving a black golf car which he had bought barely 3 months. This was the first car he owned and had bought it from his brother at a cost of 400.000,” Zuena narrates.
The Gagamel singer’s wife remembers how rainy days always left stories to tell as they always had to park the car when it started raining.
They also had to stock polythene bags for the days when it rained while they were in the middle of the road and they would then use the polythene bags to cover the gearbox to protect it from the rain.
With these heavy rains lately, I remembered a story that I want to share with you. When I had just met my husband, he was driving a black golf car which he had bought barely 3 months. This was the first car he owned and had bought it from his brother at a cost of Ugx400,000. This car saw days.
It made rounds within Kampala city and different districts. It surely was our savior, but all was merry during sunny days. When it rained ho ho ho hoooo hubby would park it and we waited till it stopped raining. If it rained when we were in the car, I would get one of the black kaveras that we kept stocking for rainy days ,and would use it to cover the gear area so rain doesn’t go through it.
The water would go through the windows and open roof even when shut because the window seals were worn out. One thing I remember vividly is when we had to park and shift to the back seat and wait till it stopped raining.
Plus all this was happening when we are already well known. I had just finished contesting for Miss Uganda and mwami had a hit song on the airwaves called Fitina. What God cannot do doesn’t exist. Be patient,your situation today will be better tomorrow.Zuena Kirema
