On Easter Monday, musician Bobi Wine was slated to hold his Kyarenga xtra concert at Busabala beach. The singer turned politician was told in writing hours to the concert that he had failed to adhere to some of the guidelines set by security hence stopping the concert.

Bobi Wine and his promoters spent the better part of Monday morning in running battles with the Police. In one of the fights, Bobi Wine was seen in a video, seated in his car with his security and promoters as police broke in using batons and gun butts.

He was later captured and taken to his home where he has been under house arrest. In a statement, he called for mass protests against police.

Today, the U.S. Embassy Kampala has spoken out about the Bobi Wine concert saga in a statement issued on their website. They called for freedom of speech and expression in the statement. Here is the full version.

Today we join the many Ugandans asking why their government has recently blocked musical concerts and radio talk shows, disrupted peaceful demonstrations and rallies, and deployed heavy-handed security forces against peaceful citizens.  Uganda’s constitution guarantees freedom of assembly and expression.  We echo the Ugandan people in calling on the government to respect these rights.  Strong leaders and states do not stifle speech – they allow their citizens to participate fully and without fear in a vibrant multi-party democracy.

Bobi Wine

The Police is yet to respond. We will keep you posted.

They are rich and famous, but the love of their life somehow continues to elude them. That’s a story that is all too familiar. We have seen way too many celebrities struggle with love. And, often, their tumultuous relationships are displayed for all to see in the tabloids making fodder for idle street talk.

That is what to expect in new TV series, Loving Tyra, that is now showing on Pearl Magic. Tyra is a successful musician with everything she can possibly need in her life; the money, the houses, the fame, the cars, the talent, all except LOVE.

However, in a twist of fortune, she unsuspectingly gets entangled with a fugitive and conman who is out hunting for his next victim. With her weak emotions and pressure from her fans and media, she ends up opening up to him.

She soon finds herself trapped in a web of love, music and mending old friendships, all that will challenge her beliefs and turn her life upside down.

The TV series stars Vivian Gold Kaitesi in the leading role as Tyra. Kaitesi has featured in several hit films and TV productions including Pretending To Be Fine (2014), Damage (2016), Hustle (2017), The Game TV Series (2017), to mention but a few.

The drama unfolds in a 13-part series that airs every Thursday at 7.30pm on Pearl Magic, available on all DStv packages, and available up to GOtv Value.
