Disturbing news coming in from Iganga Road based Queen’s Palace is that Gagamel boss and self-styled Big Size Moses Ssali a.k.a. Bebe Cool will not be performing at their 5th Anniversary on Saturday 15th December 2018 t TransAfrica.
Bebe Cool was lined up to perform alongside Swagg Mama Sheebah, Ghetto President H.E. Bobi Wine, David Lutalo, Gravity Omutujju and dancer Eddie Wizzy. The lineup was a perfect blend of different audience needs but Bebe Cool cool has had to be dropped.
According to one of the event’s publicists, Job ‘DJ Baby Job’ Bageya, Queen’s Palace received communication from the joint town security team about a security threat posed by their (Queen’s Palace) artist lineup.
“Considering the current tension and political atmosphere, we have been advised that we can’t have both Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine in the same space,” said DJ Baby Job in a phone interview with Skizar. “We have been given three options; 1) drop one of the two 2) drop both of them and 3) have the show cancelled. We have taken into consideration a number of things and have resolved to drop Bebe Cool,” he added.
This comes after close to two months since Bebe Cool was booed off stage in Kampala at Club Amnesia and forced off stage at Lugogo Cricket Oval during the Swangz AllStar Concert where he was pelted with bottles. At the height of this public animosity, Bebe Cool has had several run-ins with social media users where each party has provoked the other into bitter exchanges.
It is likely that the joint security team has foreseen an unavoidable faceoff thus advising Queen’s Palace on how to proceed.
“We are proceeding with the Sheebah, Bobi Wine, David Lutalo, Gravirty Omutujju and Eddie Wizzy and are still committed to giving you an experience to remember,” concluded DJ Baby Job.
Queen’s Palace’s 5th Anniversary Street Jam is scheduled for Saturday December 15th at TransAfrica, a city center venue directly opposite the hangout. Entrance to the concert is 10K for ordinary access tickets, 50K for VIP access and 300K for table reservations.
