Why Do Africans Love Bobi Wine?

Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, better known as Bobi Wine, is the 36-year-old who uses his politically charged songs to call for change in the country that President Yoweri Museveni has led for more than three decades. Wine has suffered serious physical abuse at the hands of state security forces, and been arrested and charged with treason. This has not only won him international sympathy but put him in the ranks of the top young Africans challenging the old guard's hold on power.
