Just one week after it’s release, the song has gainned popularity in Northern Uganda and the entire world.
Now security officials in Uganda have directed all radio stations playing the song to stop with immediate effect claiming it’s message is misleading.
In the hotcake song, Bosmic starts off by attacking political figures, particularly sons and daughters of former presidents who have crossed over to the ruling party such as Tito Okello Lutwa, Dr. Apollo Milton Obote, Okello Oryem and Amin Dada.Names mentioned include Jimmy Akena, Taban Amin, Beatrice Anywar.
Kitgum District Security Committee chaired by Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Mr William Komakech, sat last Friday and resolved to ban the song on radio stations, discotheques and other public places.
“It’s on the grounds of inciting violence that we are stopping the reproduction of more copies of the song,” the RDC said.
The Kitgum District Internal Security Officer Lawrence Asiimwe added: “Any radio station found playing this song will be closed since the song is misleading the masses.”
Some leaders have proposed that Acholi paramount chief Rwot David Onen Acana mediates between the musician and politicians.
MP Anywar’s aide Felix Ocan said Mr Bosmic should be investigated and penalised, but the artiste quipped:
“I was exposing the leaders who run away from people and side with government for their selfish interests, which is wrong for any leader who is authentically elected.”
Rights activist Richard Komakech criticised the song’s airplay ban and Mr Sebastian Oguti, a teacher, said the message in the song is “factual”.
