UCC Trashes Reports Of Banning Bobi Wine's 'Tuliyambala Engule' Song
Recently, musician Bobi Wine released a controversial song, 'Tuliyambala Engule' loosely translated as we shall wear the crown after victory.
This trending song has raised eyebrows and some Ugandans having been expecting the song to be banned by Uganda Communications commission ( UCC).
UCC has trashed reports spreading on social media that the regulatory body has banned the song, ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ from playing on radios and TV stations.
This was after reports appeared on social media suggesting that UCC Executive Director Eng. Godfrey Mutabazi had issued a directive to all broadcasters against playing the song as well as people having it on their phones.
"Radios or TV stations that are going to play Bobi Wine’s new song ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ are at risk. That song should not be played anywhere, it’s treasonous and it disturbs the peace of the president. I even warn those who have it on their phones, we can track you and you will be forced to answer some questions," one of the local media outlets through their facebook platform quoted Eng. Mutabazi.
However, when asked about the legitimacy of the report, UCC publicist, a one Pamela Ankunda trashed the social media allegations.
"Not true," she replied to a question from one of the social media gurus known as Paul Mugume, who was inquiring about the legitimacy of the report.
