People Power leader Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine has lauded his fellow singer and political aspirant Ronald Mayinja for what he termed as “call out the dictator in his face.” His remarks come a day after Mayinja performed his song Bizzeemu which is considered as anti-government in the presence of President Museveni at Catherine Kusaasira’s concert ‘Tears of a Woman’ held on Friday at Serena Hotel, Kampala.
“In a time when so many people have chosen to remain silent in the face of so much injustice; in a time when many artistes have chosen to play it safe; in a time when many Ugandans are putting their careers, safety and comfort ahead of their nation’s redemption, we must celebrate those who have chosen courage over fear; good over evil!” Bobi Wine wrote.
“When some of my colleague artistes used a music concert as an opportunity to massage the dictator and make personal requests for assistance, Ronald Mayinja used the opportunity to call out the dictator in his face. Thank you brother for being courageous and selfless. Just continue on this path- history will be kind to you!”
He also blasted those who cut Mayinja’s performance short calling them cowards. “Even if those intolerant cowards cut your performance short because they could not stand the truth, the message was delivered loud and clear. I salute you Sir!”
