Renown People Power pressure group founder and member of parliament for Kyadondo East Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has urged fellow artists to use their talent wisely in the fight for political change in Uganda.
Bobi Wine cautioned artists from selling their souls to the regime at the burial of the late Hannington Ssewankambo popularly known as Sweet Pepsi who died of his injuries sustained last year when the military clamped down on a ‘Free Bobi Wine Protest.’
“As an artiste, you have a chance to live forever or live only during your lifetime,” Bobi Wine said.
“Artistes should use their talents to stand for the truth instead of selling their souls to the dictator for short-term personal gains,” Bobi Wine.
In reference to Sweet Pepsi, Bobi Wine said that although he (Sweet Pepsi) was not a popular artiste, he used his talent to speak for the dissatisfied Ugandans.
