Bobi Wine

Robert Kyagulanyi was a musician with the stage name, Bobi Wine. He has the zeal and passion to fix things and this was made evident in his songs Ghetto, Ebibuuzo, Obululu and time bomb. Known for his vicious verbal attack on the Museveni administration, he admitted that he could not just get on with music while the country wasted under a president he has no belief in.

Now a huge political figure, he is an independent member of the Ugandan legislature. Today, his signature red beret that forms part of his fashion has become a favorite of young people. And so what does the government do? They ban red berets.
