After the cancellation of Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga concert by Namboole Stadium, there as been a trending hashtag on social media calling upon the public to boycott all Uganda Cranes Games that will be hosted at Mandela National Stadium Namboole. This comes after the second cancellation of Bobi Wine’s concert which was to take place on Friday November 9th at the stadium.
As a result, some of the singer’s supporters are reported to have reacted out of anger and are calling upon many more to follow suit and boycott the national team.
However, Bobi Wine has stated that he doesn’t agree with boycotting Uganda Cranes because it’s our national team in which we should always take pride and support with all our abilities.
“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. These young men, just like most of us work hard to raise our flag high, using their talents 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 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.” Bobi Wine posted on his social media pages.
