Uganda Communication Commission has clarified on the social media reports that it has banned Bebe Cool recently released ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ song.
The song which simply means “we shall wear the crown after victory” has caused excitement among several netizens especially social media users and many people have posting on social media that the song has been banned by UCC.
This has forced the the UCC to come out and make public statements about the song of Bobi Wine who doubles as Kyadondo East member of parliament.
“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.
UCC has however, trashed reports spreading on social media that the regulatory body has banned the viral song, ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ from playing on radios and TV stations.
The denial by UCC comes after the social media was awash with the report claiming 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.
However, when asked to comment about the legitimacy of the report, UCC public relations officer, Mrs. 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.
