It might be two more years to Uganda’s next general election, but MP Bobi Wine’s dream to oust president Yoweri Museveni has just received a much needed boost.
This is after Jamaican dancehall musician, Clifford Smith, popularly known as ‘Mr Vegas’ vowed to personally fly to Uganda and campaign for the ghetto president when the time comes.
The ‘Heads high’ hit maker made the powerful promise on Twitter, where he heaped praises on Bobi Wine for his continued resilience, passion and sacrifice on in fight for his people.
He went on to mention the fact that despite Bobi Wine’s success in music, he never sat back and watched as his people suffer but made it his duty to step out of his comfort zone.
I will come and campaign for you when you are ready bro! Africa Stand Up!
This is the future! I met this man! He could have stuck to his music & watch our people suffering continue. The sacrifice is real. Wrote Vegas.
Vegas was reacting to Bobi Wine’s tweet where he expressed his honor and pleasure upon holding discussions with the legendary reverend Jesse Jackson sr.
Jackson worked with the late icon, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in their fight against social injustice in America.
Bobi wine’s tweet read:
It was an absolute honor and pleasure to meet with and hold a discussion with
@RevJJackson, a towering leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, who worked very closely with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in the fight against injustice, poverty and discrimination.
