Bobi Wine’s political victory is a motivation to every Joe and Jerry. More and more musicians are saying they are going to contest for political office come 2021. Just the other week, Dr. Hilder Man hinted that he will be on the ballot paper against Amelia Kyambade in Mawokota County.
Before we could let that sink in, local rapper, Navio Kigozi has also expressed interest in vying for political office.
Navio made it known through his social media platform, Instagram, writing against a picture in which he appears with Bobi: “MC’s to MP’S, RUBAGA 2021”
Navio is a son to, Maggie Kigozi who has held a catalogue of high positions under the current system. Whether Navio and Hilder are serious, only time will tell.
Parliament has become a destination for musicians who have failed to make radio hits. Judith Babirye, Kato Lubwama are some of the musicians who have jumped on the political train in the past.
