Presidential Advisor on media Tamale Mirundi has applauded Bobi Wine’s influence in recognition of musicians by President Yoweri Museveni.
Tamale Mirundi says the forces that Bobi Wine gathered in a very short time forced Museveni to look down on Musicians as resourceful.
“Bobi Wine has elevated the status of musicians,” says Tamale Mirundi.
According to Tamale Mirundi, Museveni’s 2021 Elections manifesto will be very good if he continues working with the musicians because they are in touch with reality and they know what people want.
“If you want to win elections in Uganda, have a musician as an advisor,” he claims.
Tamale also noted the fact that Bobi Wine elevated the status of musicians, Museveni’s decision to have artistes as advisors will enable very many musicians to go to Parliament adding that Ugandans are realizing that musicians can positively influence their future since they are in touch with the reality.
Tamale’s comments come at a time the music industry is seen as the biggest influence in the politics of Uganda since many musicians are warming up for political offices in the upcoming 2021 general elections with Bobi Wine challenging President Museveni.
