Singer Catherine Kusasira is not happy with her fellow artist Ronald Mayinja for performing a song which annoyed president Museveni at her concert last week.
At the concert Ronald Mayinja sang one of his songs titled “Bizeemu” which highlights the increasing insecurity, alleged nepotism and rampant corruption in the country.
The song also accuses government of ignoring many issues which affect the people of Uganda including youth unemployment and failure to provide social services on top of charging exorbitant taxes on every item.
However, President Museveni disagreed with the singer and asked him to refrain from propagating lies to Ugandans who are busy enjoying peace brought by NRM government.
In an interview with NBS TV’s Uncut ,Catherine Kusasira expressed her bitterness noting that Mayinja knew very well that she supports NRM and he would not have sang the song.
“I am not happy for what my fellow singer Ronald did. How can he sing “Bizeemu” in front of the president on my concert?” she asked.
She said there is nothing like Bizeemu in Uganda and the country is steadily progressing so the song was uncalled for and such kind of accusations must stop.
“I am a supporter of NRM and I think there is peace and freedom in Uganda. People are not killing each other, this is what he should understand,” she said.
She explained that she asked Mayinja before stepping on stage not to sing a song which can annoy president Museveni.
“we told Mayinja not to sing that song because it would annoy the president but he didn’t listen .Ronald Mayinja should apologise for what he did,”she added.
However, Mayinja noted that his main aim was to deliver the message to the president basing on the current state of the country, so he did nothing wrong.
He said the song describes the current situation where people are being kidnapped, killed and murdered in cold blood and nothing is done by security.
He said he does not regret singing the song because the prevailing circumstances explain all what he meant in the song.
