US rapper Abbas Hamad, better known as Bas is set to host a new Spotify podcast which focuses on Ugandan presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Bobi Wine.
The podcast titled “The Messenger” is reportedly debuting today January 15th.
It is produced by Dreamville Studios which is owned by famous rapper J Cole.
Bas is one of 8 musicians so far signed by the record label.
US media reports that the podcast follows Bobi Wine’s career from growing up in the slums, to fighting against President Yoweri Museveni.
Alongside Bas telling Bobi Wine’s story, the podcast will also feature music from the legendary artist and new interviews with him. The series will also highlight some of the political revolutions happening across the continent of Africa. The project is among the first to come from Dreamville Studios, which was announced back in October.
The Messenger is executive produced by Rodney (President of Dreamville Studios), Adam Roy, Ibrahim Hamad, and Jermaine Cole for Dreamville, Jesse Burton for Awfully Nice.
There were also unconfirmed reports that the Studio was working on a movie on Mr Bobi Wine, focusing on the recent election violence and deaths in Uganda.
Our efforts to reach out to Bobi Wine’s campaign team however, were fruitless as our phone calls went unanswered.
