Bobi Wine’s tight friend Nubian Li has opened up on how his colleague stepped into a political office saying that life has changed ever since the singer cumed politician became the Kyadondo East legislator way back in 2017.
According to him, “I remember we were driving from Jinja. Then we read a news headline by New Vision that the Kyadondo East MP sit had fallen vacant, “As we conversed, I told him ‘Bobi, do you know this is luck knocking? You stay in Kyadondo and now there’s a vacant seat’. But he didn’t care at the time”. Nubian Li stressed when speaking to NTV on Friday.
“I told him ‘You stand a chance if you contest as MP. Just make consultations with the people’. He was like ‘Yeah?’. Initially, he wasn’t convinced, but when he consulted, the feedback was encouraging”. Nubian Li noted.
He also stressed that Bobi wine’s victory in 2017 as the Kyadondo East Mp has played a big role in changing the perceptions surrounding the role of youths in politics and governance. “Bobi’s involvement in politics created a spark. It opened up many people’s eyes. Politics was known to be for the old folks, and the young folks had been relegated to alcohol and entertainment, our generation had been sidelined. We were losing our country yet we will be the old generation tomorrow. It would be unfortunate if we did nothing”. he said.
Speaking on Bobi Wine’s cancelled concerts, Nubian Li says “I don’t see this ban will be lifted unless the current government changes. Me myself I have seen many of my colleagues’ shows stopped simply because I was on the poster and authorities fear if I perform, Bobi might come along with me”.
