It is the usual unending dissing and bickering between musicians. Now Gagamel big boss, Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool is not having the best of times especially after Ghetto President’s supporters attacked his wife for being unconstructive.
It started at the close of the week when Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine won the Kyadondo East MP by-election.
Ever since, social media has been awash with negative criticism directed towards Bebe Cool’s wife, Zuena Kimera, who was weighed against Ghetto First Lady, Barbie Kyagulanyi, and found wanting.
The gist of the matter is that while Barbie stood with Bobi Wine and lifted him from the sewers to the very steps of Uganda’s legislative house, Zuena on the other hand, is busy enjoying her lavish lifestyle without adding anything on what she found.
Zuena is accused of not being constructive to Bebe, that her job is to ask him for money to go to the saloon, buy cars or fly to the USA for delivery, saying this is the reason the reggae/raga singer has underachieved.
Bebe who is currently in Kenya for the Coke Studio Africa, did not receive these remarks very well.
Here is his rebuttal.
They say silence is golden but they too say too much of anything is bad. Am away at Coke Studio Africa in Kenya for my second week doing international music which I believe is good for myself and my country.
I have seen a lot of people from Uganda attacking me and my wife over a local election in Uganda. To my understanding it was a musician that was voted by a section of Ugandans. But it has come with demands and insults, some of which I deserve, but not my wife.
I am writing this post as a husband defending my wife and family as a whole.
Now let me pump some sense into your heads;
1- The reason I work hard every day of the week is to see a smile on my wife and children’s faces whenever I wake up every morning. If expensive cars, good clothes & shoes, great health care abroad, and so on, is what it takes, I will do exactly those things for them till my last breath.
- It is my choice to see Zuena change her hair every week, drive an expensive car, go abroad for any reason, buy new knickers weekly, not kneel before me while serving me (because I want her knees to remain as smooth as I found them 14 years ago). The reason for all this is ensure the she keeps me turned on.
- Success and achievements are relative. While some of you believe that owning a residential house is an achievement, some of us believe in owning commercial properties that will ensure a steady return on investment for a lifetime.
- I do not believe in announcing my personal possessions and milestones just to impress you. As long as the people that matter to me are aware of my worth, that is satisfactory enough for me. My wife is top on that list, bearing in mind that am the top ranking Ugandan artist presently and that can only be achieved by a man with a very strong woman behind him.
- It would be wrong of me to blame failure of once a top artist in keeping their spot at the top on lack of a strong woman behind them. I am aware that staying in the music business takes wit, determination, Talent, commitment, focus, respect, lots of finances, strategy, clear mental health, but I also know that not many people POSSESS these attributes. I would never in my conscious self-blame their lack of persistence in this competitive music business on their wives.
At this point, I want to ‘re assure you that am very comfortable with my wife’s demands, those who know her well know she’s not demanding at all in fact I force her to spend on herself most of the times…This makes me feel a complete man. Munviile ku mukazi wange, mama wa baana bange. She is NOT comparable to any.
I love you Zuena and I dedicate this new song to you.
