Nambooze Attacks Kusasira: You Bangled Up A Stolen Song

Published

on

Mukono Municipality Member Of Parliament (MP)Betty Nambooze Bakireke has attacked musician Catherine Kusasira over her recent ‘tears of a woman’ concert at Serena Hotel.

In a letter on her social media page, Nambooze blames Kusasira for failing to represent the tears of the Ugandan women and wasting a great opportunity.

“Tears of women by Kusasira needed a more composed singer who is nonpartisan but somebody who wants to bring out a voice for the women,” Nambooze said.

Nambooze said, “to Catherine Kusasira this must have been her attempt to rebrand…Moving away from funny love songs to venture into the world of using her music for advocacy and maybe sing some English. Am not one of those who were decampaigning Kusasira ‘s concert for we must teach ourselves not to persecute people we don’t agree with politically. We should be different from the junta that stops concerts by opposition Musicians.

In the song video Kusasira places her big bum before a piano and tries playing out lyrics of the song entitled “Tears of a woman”. Advocacy is one of the great things Musicians can ever engage in,it’s not our usual Music, it’s sang for the World and this is what Kusasira tried to put her hands on.”

She adds, “Yet the launch at Serena,fell far below that…in the end the message was lost and a great opportunity was wasted. Tears of women by Kusasira needed a more composed singer who is non partisan but somebody who wants to bring out a voice for the women.

Kusasira was singing about Domestic violence that target women as victims, she was singing against torture BUT maybe because she just bought that song from a composer who wanted money, Kusasira and her Chief guest Mr.Musevèñi forgot about the crusade and sank themselves in the petty beefing and vindictive politics that now characterise our Music and Politics in Uganda.

I am tempted to think that Kùsàsira’s song was drawn through perjury of Oleta Adam’s Tears of Fear a renowned song that calls on the World to free women from the bondage of Chains. So, I waited for Mr. Museveni to address this matter but he didn’t, instead he praised himself for having “ushered in peace which sees many Ugandans happy ” as exemplified by the audience at Kusasira’s show.”

Nambooze adds, “According to the latest Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) of 2011, 56% of women from age 15 to 29 years have experienced physical violence and 28 percent of women have experienced sexual violence in their lifetime. That means that more than half of Ugandan women have been abused at home, at school, or at work.

Sexual violence, especially against girls, is equally widespread with 77.7% of the primary school children and 82% of the secondary school students experiencing sexual abuse while at school.

The attacks differ: 8% of girls are subjected to defilement, 24% are spoken to in a sexual way, 18% receive marriage proposals, and 25% are fondled/touched in a sexual manner while 29% are made to watch sexual scenes (pornography). Of the female students sampled, 67% of reported to have been sexually abused by a male teacher.

Prevalence of child marriage in Uganda is 40 %. Prevalence of child marriages is highest in northern Uganda estimated at 59%, followed by Western region (58%), Eastern region (52%), East-central (52%), West Nile (50%), Central (41%), Southwest (37%), and lowest in Kampala (21%).

The estimated prevalence of FGM/C among girls and women between 15-49 years of age is 1.4%. Up to 134,000 women are affected.”

“Up to 25 percent of adolescents aged 15-19 have begun childbearing and 19% of women aged 15-19 years have given birth. Adolescent childbearing is more common in rural than in urban areas (27% versus 19% respectively).

These are the tears that Government must wipe off women faces of course plus other things that have made the lives of Ugandans miserable. This was also the right moment for Museveni to tell us about how far he has gone with the provision of free sanitary pads for school girls,…he forgot or he doesn’t have anything to tell the women; his government has let them down,” she notes.

Nambooze says that, “The song which Kusasira domesticated runs:

Lyrics

You better love loving and you better behave

You better love loving and you better behave

Woman in Chains

Woman in Chains

Calls her man the Great White Hope

Says she’s fine, she’ll always cope

Woman in Chains

Woman in Chains

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man’s deal

And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel

It’s a world gone crazy

Keeps Woman in Chains

Trades her soul as skin and bones

Sells the only thing she owns

Woman in Chains

Woman in Chains

Men of Stone

Men of Stone

Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds Time can’t heal

And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe

Well you know what I mean

It’s a world gone crazy

Keeps Woman in Chains

It’s under my skin but out of my hands

I’ll tear it apart but I won’t understand

I will not accept the Greatness of Man

It’s a world gone crazy

Keeps Woman in Chains

So Free Her

So Free Her

Published

on

City socialite Suleiman Kabangala Mbuga alias SK Mbuga has asked Bryan White to stop blaming the mafia for his debt woes.

While appearing on a local TV, Mbuga said that Bryan White should stop blaming the Mafia and look for money to compensate his creditors.

“Byran White is just broke but there are no Mafias against him, he used to dish out cash to people without minding (those who he owes), it is time for him to pay,” he said.

Mbuga challenged Bryan white that if indeed he has proof that it is the mafia fighting him, let him expose them before police.

“Let him come out and expose the Mafias to police if he is not lying. He brags that he has money, let him use the money to attack them back,” he added.

“We used to see him posting photos with the president, can’t the president help him out?” he asked.

He further advised Bryan white to always save instead of dishing out money because he cannot sustain it.

“What I can advise Bryan White is to save instead of dishing the little money he has. He should select true friends not parasites,” he advised.

Bryan white was recently arrested and detained for failing to pay his creditors who included Cpt. Mike Mukula, Yassah Matovu and his land lord.

Musician Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo has revealed that he is ready to meet the man who snatched his woman from him so that he can officially hand her and his family over to him.

While appearing on NBS TV’s “Akatebe”, Kenzo said he would like to meet Ssebunya and thank him for caring for his family and officially handover to him.

“I really want to meet Hamza and handover my family to him, it may sound funny but Rema went with my child Amaal so I want to thank him for taking care of her and give him the overall control over my family,” Kenzo said.

Kenzo added that he misses bonding with his daughter as a father. He further revealed that he was aware of Rema’s departure because they discussed it with her earlier.

“I knew that with time Rema will move on because we had our own disagreements so it was not a surprise to me though I was hurt so much,” a disappointed Kenzo said.

However, Kenzo said he is still waiting for president Museveni’s promise of supporting him and the Ghetto upcoming artists and once the promise is fulfilled, he will be happy and grateful.

“I met president Museveni and I am now waiting for the results from the meeting since he promised to support my career and also those in the Ghetto who have talents but are struggling to breakthrough because of financial hardships,” he added.

When asked his political party, Kenzo said he has no political party but he is a supporter of Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu’s people power movement.
