BET award winner Edrisa Musuuza was the first Ugandan to be featured on 25th September 2020 when he announced a song ‘Missounua’ featuring Monique Séka
Bobi Wine made it after he ended his inaugural season of The Messenger podcast while speaking to Sudanese-American rapper (turned podcaster) Bas.
During the podcast, Bobi Wine narrated how he was held under house arrest with his wife Barbie Kyagulanyi in Magere for eleven days after they cast their vote on January 14th, 2021 adding how there has been a lot to keep track of.
The Messenger podcast acted as an anchor point for his fans and supporters to digest his latest updates in relatively real-time as well as relying on the events leading up to and following Uganda’s 2021 presidential elections.
