Things are not rosy between former close friends singer Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool and renowned events promoter Balaam Barugahara, who are said to be beefing over President Yoweri Museveni’s campaign money.
President Museveni is currently on his upcountry campaign trail, having been in Luwero on Monday, in Lira on Tuesday and on Wednesday (today) he is in the West Nile.
ExposedUganda.com this week unveiled a list of some of the musicians who are headlining President Museveni’s campaign team.
But it should be noted that the coordinator, mobiliser and payer of all these and more others is none other than Bebe Cool, something that insiders say did not auger well with Balaam after Bebe hitched the deal.
This is because Balaam had anticipated that at least if Bebe Cool scoops the deal to mobilise and pay artistes, he (Balaam) would get the deal to provide a public address system, organize the stage, presidential podium, etc.
However, he almost got shocked on realising that Bebe had actually taken over everything, including providing the public address system, recording videos, engaging social media platforms, among other roles, which left Balaam almost irrelevant at the campaigns, rendering his Balaam Events company out of place.
After being rendered nonessential and inconsequential at the NRM presidential campaigns, we hear Balaam has since decided to remain backstage and watch, although he has no kind words for Bebe Cool and Moles intimate that he is sour-grapping the son of Bidandi Ssali nothing.
The Moles intimate that things worsened between the two after Bebe Cool scrapped off some of the names of artistes that Balaam had put on the list like DJ Michael and others without consulting him.
Meanwhile, we are told that the President is very impressed by Bebe Cool’s performance so far and every evening he asks for a review of recordings for the day’s proceedings as accountability for funds the popular musician signed for when he was being handed the job.
Hey guys, watch this space for all the gossip from the NRM Presidential Campaign Team.
