Musician Bobi Wine has come out to comment about the currently trending hashtag advising Ugandans to boycott Uganda Cranes matches after his Kyarenga concert being cancelled on grounds of a Uganda Cranes match.
Bobi Wine says the cranes should not be boycotted as it would be adding salt to the wound, since this is a talent that is left after his musical talent being suffocated.
I have seen some friends act out of anger as a result of the Kyarenga concert cancellation by the Namboole management.
Friends, I dont agree with the trending hashtag #boycottugandacranes. Uganda Cranes is our national team in which we should always take pride and support with all our abilities. These young men, just like most of us work hard to raise our flag high using their talent even when they are insufficiently facilitated. If musical talent is being suffocated, let’s not take all the other talent down the drain. Our national team is the mirror of the best and worst in us as a nation so all they need is Love and understanding, not condemnation. We are all Uganda Cranes and Uganda Cranes is us.
