Starboss alias Big Eye, a ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM-leaning] musician who was hit with bottles on Wednesday, has finally met President Museveni.
The Friday meeting took place at Nakasero State Lodge.
Big Eye was taken to the president by city events promoter, Balaam Barugahara.
During the same meeting, Museveni also interfaced with “one of Uganda’s finest talents” in the stand-up comedy industry, Patrick Idringi aka Salvado of Ombokolo village.
“Alhamdulillah,” Big Eye blurted out.
He went on: “Its absurd when your very own people take your painful situation for granted.”
The singer has been in great pain after being hit with bottles at Uganda Museum during NBS “Uncut” first anniversary.
He was also stopped by Balaam from marching to Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s Magere home to protest the mistreatment of NRM-leaning musicians by People Power supporters.
On Thursday, he said: “Uganda is my home. Museveni is my president. I was born here and I will die here.”
Indeed his praise paid off. He finally met the president.
Responding to Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze who seemed to cheer his troubled days, Big Eye said:
“I am so disappointed in how the opposition leaders are talking about this violence matter. It’s very absurd.”
