Former FireBase singer Buchaman has asked his former boss to let him perform at the upcoming Kyarenga concert due Saturday, November 10.
Kyarenga is artiste turned musician Bobi Wine’s ‘comeback’ concert. It will be held at One Love Beach, Busabala after Namboole Stadium management blocked it twice.
According to a source in the FireBase army, Buchaman, who was Bobi Wine’s defacto number two for a couple of years, has joined the long list of artistes who want to be part of what has been billed as ‘concert of the year’, even before happening.
It should be remembered that the two had a public falling out, which ended with Lwakyi Temumatila singer being dismissed from FireBase. Since then, his career has dwindled. The singer is often times high on some substances that we shall assume are banned.
But that is beside the point. During the Kyadondo East constituency by-election, Buchaman mysteriously appeared at Wampewo grounds and performed for people who had gathered to listen to FDC’s Apollo Kantinti campaign.
Then, he reportedly told the gathering not to listen to Bobi Wine’s ‘smooth talk’ saying the legislator is a ‘conman’ only interested in money. He also released a song titled Dikula that no one seems to have listened to. It attacks his former boss.
Although Bobi has previously said he does not have hard feelings towards Bucha, we wait to see whether he will allow his former protégée to perform.
Entry fee to the Kyarenga concert will cost Shs10,000.
