When KCCA brought Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz to perform at the Charity concert and later at the annual city carnival, it had no idea of the indirect punches and wounds imparted on the hearts of Ugandan musicians despite the earlier cries by some artistes that KCCA was not getting patriotic.
Openly it was Gravity Omutujju expressing his disappointment to KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi on the main Carnival Stage and just when we thought the musicians had stomached the underestimation, Big size and Gagamel International boss Bebe Cool popped up with a daring game.
According to a one town promoter, Big Size wants to battle with Diamond Platnumz at Lugogo Cricket Oval with an entrance fee of 100,000 shillings per head. What compelled him not to stomach this is that Bebe Cool is famous for thrilling the crowds when it comes to live stage performances something that he feels Diamond Platnumz failed to do despite the huge sum of money KCCA paid him.
It should be noted that Bebe is the king of battles since 2012; he dared Bobi Wine in a battle at Kyadondo Rugby grounds where thousands of fans turned up setting the grounds on fire where he emerged the winner. The second battle was with the Goodlyf boys Radio and Weasel and he emerged the winner still. Bebe Cool has now taken the battle to the East African level and he is ready to face the stage of Diamond the multi prestigious award winning Bongo flava star!
