By BigEyeUg Team; In the face of being one of the most rewarded musicians by the President of Uganda for the past two years, Big Eye feels life is not worth to live.

Even not the recent 10 hybrid cows can console him back to his flamboyant lifestyle.

Apparently, struggling singer Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye StarBoss is out of sorts after accumulating over Shs. 450Million in debts.

In a live Facebook video, the ‘Ndi Single’ singer has cried out his heart to the President of Uganda, H.E YK Museveni, fellow NRM members, and fans at large to redeem his current financial crisis that may ride him into jail.

The self-proclaimed ‘Star Boss’ says he purchased a residential house worth Shs. 460Million but he managed to make an initial deposit of Shs.60Million with hope of mending the balance in the shortest time possible.

On a sad note, all his plans were doomed earlier this year after being pelted with bottles as he was performing live on stage which pursued concert promoters to also shun his bookings.

After mounting unbearable pressure from the bank over the debts, Big Eye’s hopes drained and he resorted to selling his own car which has not also matched the debts to date.

Big Eye also says he has defaulted additional Shs.50Million as rent for the past 6months.

He also notes that he has a limited grace period to make the full payment for the house if he is not ready to lose even the initial deposit of Shs.60Million.

I am left with limited time to complete the house payment or else am likely to lose even the Shs. 60Million that I paid at first,” said Big Eye.

He further claims to have not received any payment from the NRM political party despite offering campaigning services for H.E YK Museveni in the 2010 and 2015 campaigns.

As usual, the singer is receiving severe controversy all over the media as majority ascertain him to be a ‘mere beggar’ who is often drawn to seeking public sympathy, a mark he seems not to be bothered with.
