For the 1st time ever in Uganda’s entertainment history, 2 of the biggest rivals in the showbiz industry: Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool will share one stage this weekend during Radio & Weasel‘s Album Launch Titled #BestofRadioandWeasel Concert at the Hotel Africanna in Kampala.
The 2 musicians have never seen eye to eye and their beef not only is in the music industry but trickle’s over even to family & friends. Most recently Bobi Wine told Bebe Cool to stop singing or have all his songwriters fired for being weak. Bebe Cool retaliated by hitting Bobi Wine in the media saying he is a failed musician and should quit music.
The #BestofRadioandWeasel Concert comes a week after Weasel’s big brother Dr. Jose Chameleone held a concert dubbed “Wale Wale Double Trouble Concert’ that saw at least 82,700 people pack the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
Bobi Wine is also a movie actor, mainly starring in a few local movies commonly known as Binayugandda. He is well known for his love of cars and has quite a fleet of them, including the famous American SUV the Escalade. Bobi Wine is also associated with a famous TV show that is filmed at his plush lake-view mansion. He has recently released a brand new song entitled “Dilemma” featuring Mr.G from Jamaica & Cindy.
On 11 July 2010, Bebe Cool was performing at the Kyadondo Rugby Grounds when a bomb set by Islamist terrorist group Al-Shabaab exploded (July 2010 Kampala attacks). According to Bebe Cool, “Most people who died were just in front of me. The blast was so loud—the next thing I saw were body parts flying over.”
