Ugandan singer Bebe Cool has vowed not to make any public appearance in Uganda till further notice.
The singer has faced the wrath of fans twice while on stage for his alleged mocking of MP and fellow singer Bobi Wine.
Through a post on his Facebook , the singer stated that he had opted to take the decision for the sake of himself , his family and his fans.
Here is the post he did on Facebook.
My name is Moses Bebe Cool Ssali, a Ugandan by birth, a muganda, a muslim, a father, a husband, a brother, a son and a friend to many. I have been in the music business for more than 20 years now and i am proud to say that i have made a great contribution to the development of the Ugandan, East African & African entertainment industry. It gives me great pride to witness several young musicians, comedians, instrumentalists and promoters make a fine living in this entertainment industry. In this same industry, i have built a life for myself, my family, friends and many dependants.The current fruits from this industry would not have existed if Uganda did not have peace, freedom, tranquillity and tolerance for each others’ religious, political and cultural beliefs.
For the last few weeks, i had chosen silence as a means to exercise my tolerance for the political events that are currently transpiring in the country. Unfortunately, while at a performance last Friday, i was pelted with bottles and stones by a group of people purportedly because i do not subscribe to their political beliefs.
For the safety of myself, family, friends and fans, i regrettably would like to announce that i will not be making any public performances until further notice. My prayer is that the current situation in our beloved country doesn’t deteriorate into an unfortunate state. For God and my Country.
On Friday 30th August Bebe was attacked by revelers at the Lugogo cricket oval during the Tarrus Riley concerts.
Fans threw bottles on stage chanting “People power” a slogan associated with Bobi wine.
Bebe cool was later whisked away for safety by police officers
