Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine has made a name for himself in the political space in his home country, Uganda. Through his music, Wine has become the biggest critic of the government and the voice of the people.

In his quest to check the government, his single “Situka” which means ‘rise up” in the Luganda Language was released in 2016. The song placed a target on him from the government of the day.

He was arrested, beaten and charged in military court but released later.
