I drive a 150 million car

Bebe Cool was yesterday appearing on NTV the Beat to throw more light on the Tubonga Naawe song and the Presidential dinner that has since become the talk-of-the town.

He said that since he was a child, he has been supporting President Museveni, and, it's not new for artistes to support the President citing Eddy Kenzo whose Stamina song was more or less the theme song in the last elections.

Bebe Cool went on to say that at this time of elections, you are either sleeping or smiling so him and five others (he did not mention) came up with the Tubonga Naawe project which was a way of linking the musicians to the ruling government like it is the case with other sectors, and to do this, they had to use music.

As musicians, we do travel a lot, so we know most parts of the country as opposed to those criticising the project but only know two places, Kampala and their ancestral homes.

Others on the show were; James Wasula of Uganda Performing Rights Society, Andrew Benon Kibuka aka Dube who is the President for the Federation of Performing Artists in Uganda, Joe Tabula and music critic Eddie Ssendi but trust Big Size, they literally did not say anything as he dominated the show.

Bebe Cool  -  "At this time of elections, you are either sleeping or smiling...."

The show host, Douglas Lwanga, told Bebe Cool that word out there had it that, they had been paid for this Tubonga project so ...."Who works for free," Bebe shot back.

"When you are hungry, where do you go? Do you go to the bedroom or the kitchen..I drive a 150 million car, the other day Kenzo bought a 500 million house, you should give the artists some respect.."

Before the show could end, Bebe Cool tackled "The Maurice Kirya" issue saying that the invitation was clear, It was an invitation for the Tubonga Naawe experience and not a copyright dinner but instead of coming for the dinner, he decided to put the invite under his armpit. He (Maurice Kirya) is not even registered under these associations enforcing the copyright law.

It was then that Eddy Sendi chipped using the local dialect just to drive the point home saying that the artistes and other players in the sector are to blame for the failure of the copyright law, because, they themselves go door to door vending their music on USB's which makes it very difficult for other parties to enforce the copyright law.
