Bobi Wine's new song Tuliyambala Engule has become talk of the nation, attracting both approval and reproach from several Ugandans.

Some, including Pastor Martin Ssempa, an activist and founder of the Makerere Community Church accused the Kyadondo East MP, real name Robert Kyagulanyi of trying to replace Jesus and distorting the Christian heritage to push his political campaigns.

But the singer has today defended the lyrics, calling it a song of hope for Ugandans.

"That song is supposed to re-emphasise confidence in the minds and hearts of all Ugandans. To make them know that the times we are going through are not easy but at the end of this struggle, after we win, we shall wear the victor's crown," he said in an interview with NTV Uganda.
