Uganda President Has Bobi Wine Allies Singing a New Tune?

Social media was abuzz when a photo of President Yoweri Museveni and Lucky Bosmic Otim shaking hands emerged - shocking fans who thought it was all thanks to photoshop. Bosmic, an ally of Bobi Wine and a People Power vocal coordinator and kingpin in Acholi sub-region, has been a critic of Museveni's "bad rule" and leadership through his songs for years. In October 2019, Museveni appointed singer Mark Bugembe also known as Buchman as his adviser on Ghetto affairs, a move Bobi Wine, who is the self-declared "ghetto president" slammed. So just how do these People Power music stars end up at the feet of President Museveni?
