Kyadondo East legislator and Afro beat artist Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has encouraged social media enthusiasts to drop the Hash tag #boycottugandacranes that was picked shortly after the Management of Namboole stadium called off Kyarenga concert.
This is the second time when the Management of Namboole stadium is calling off Kyarenga concert. The music show that is market at launch Bobi Wine’s latest song dubbed as ‘Kyarenga.
The concert was first scheduled on October 20, but was cancelled and the organisers were implored to reschedule it and both parties resolved that the show be hosted no November 11 in 45,202 seating capacity multi-purpose stadium.
The decision was reached after the receiving of a petition that was written by FUFA expressing their worries that the pitch may negatively be affected by the big numbers of people expected to attend it.
In the letter, FUFA contend that following various warning by continental football body CAF, Uganda is likely to be banned from hosting its game against Cape Verde on the November 16 in the famous Namboole stadium if the pitch fails to meet all required standards.
“I have seen some friends act out of anger as a result of the Kyarenga concert cancellation by the Namboole management. Friends, I don’t 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,” Bobi Wine wrote.
He said, Cranes team is just like other patriotic Ugandans striving hard to raise country’s 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 the 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,” he said in a social media post.
