We are just a few days away from the most revered football tournament on the continent, the African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Uganda qualified for the first time since 1978. And as everyone is anxiously waiting for this moment, renowned musician Bobi Wine has urged Ugandans to support the national football team, the Uganda Cranes.
In regard to this, he has taken it upon himself to lead by example, and on Wednesday donated Shs5million to the Cranes.
“Today I have given Five Million Shillings (cash) as my humble contribution to the #UgandaCranes #MujjeTulumbe campaign that will see our boys go make us proud in Gabon. We last qualified for Africa Cup Of Nations in 1978 when many of us were even not yet born.
This is one of the rarest opportunities for us to come together as #Ugandans regardless of tribe, sex, age, Religious or political affiliation…It’s our time to celebrate Uganda,” he informed his fans through Facebook.
However, that’s not all from him as he is to reward fans of the national team too. He revealed that through his beach, One Love Busabala Beach, he is to pay for air tickets to Gabon, where the tournament is set to be hosted come January.
“On this very note, I want to call upon all fellow countrymen to heed to this call and support our team with anything you can afford. On #BoxingDay at #OneLoveBeachBusabala shall give out two air tickets to lucky winners to go and support our team,” Bobi Wine wrote.
