Former presidential candidate and NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu seems to be a man destined for greater heights owing to the recent achievements he’s getting brought about by his adventure in politics.
Despite the ongoing fracas of the aftermath of the January 14th presidential election where he emerged runner up to incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, his star has kept shining elsewhere.
Kyagulanyi who garnered 35% in the election, a record no opposition politician competing against Museveni has ever achieved recently appeared on the famous and renowned New York Times Square Billboard.
This happened after the singer cum politician was featured on ‘The Messenger’ podcast hosted by Sudanese American rapper Bas who hosts it.
Bobiwine was narrating about how the election transpired and what has happened post it and what he plans to do ahead.
The ‘Situka’ singer talked about how his campaign team was derailed by security operatives, how he was put under house arrest after the election and the tumultuous period ongoing at the moment and all the injustices meted against him after he had declared his presidential intentions.
Bobiwine in the podcast tried to tell his supporters and urge them not to be diverted from the gospel he’s been preaching to them since he declared his presidential intentions.
In the podcast Bobiwine also discussed with Bas the pros and cons of juggling two roles, music and politics. The two also talked about how celebrities and other people with a bigger voice can use it to shape the destinies of their societies.
By appearing on the Times square, Bobiwine became just the third Ugandan to achieve such a feat after music producer Herbert Skills and Eddy Kenzo appeared on it before.
