As the race for the 2021 General Election looms nearer, politicians are doing everything possible to woo as many supporters as they can to their side.
As you read this, Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake Butebi has since joined the singing bandwagon, with intent to use music to rally his supporters.
Zaake, who is member of People Power and the National Unity Platform (NUP) candidate for Mityana Municipality MP seat in the 2021 election, has since released a song titled ‘Tebatusobola.’
A collabo with veteran musician Omulangira Suuna aka O.S Suuna, Zaake’s song is already blaring on radio stations and public address systems in various parts of the country as the two work upon shooting the video.
We hear that Zaake intends to use the songs as his campaign slogan ahead of next year’s election, although it is not yet clear whether it will be endorsed by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to be played on local radio stations.
It should be noted that several politicians often use music as a medium to reach out to their supporters.
During the 2016 General Election President Yoweri Museveni and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) used the ‘Tubonga Nawe’ song, which recorded by several musicians to rally support from millions of Ugandans.
Indeed several musicians, among them Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone, Hillary Kiyaga aka Dr. Hilderman among others have since joined the political arena and are vying for seat in the 2021 election.
