This comes as a clear notification that what Bobi Wine said at the recently concluded Save Uganda Music meeting has started yielding fruits. Leaving alone the musician turned politician Bobi Wine, Ziza Bafana has become the first top artiste to produce a song with lyrics clearly directed to Members of Parliament and government particularly about the ongoing parliamentary confusion.
Following the tabling of the controversial age limit which seeks to lift the presidential age limit capped at 75 years, Bafana hit studios this month and produced a reggae tune titled Batutunze literally meaning they have sold us a clear face punch to our greedy Members of Parliament. And given the current political situation, the song has easily found its way into the masses in addition to his image as a big artiste.
In the song, the king of dancehall and self proclaimed god of raga music cites that leaders have sold off the country Uganda. He also speaks of uncertainty of the future generation in what he sings as deteriorating state of affairs with moral degeneration, corruption, cultural erosion.
In the same song that was produced by Rickson Kuzim and video directed Jerome Kakande, Bafana prays that God saves Uganda from vultures and greedy leaders. This is a clear sign that now artistes have fully joined the Tojikwatako campaign and since they are the educators of the masses through lyrics, Ugandans can hope for the light at the end of the tunnel.
