Aside the musician turned politician Bobi Wine, Ziza Bafana becomes the first big artist to produce a song with clear lyrics directed to Members of Parliament and government.
Following the tabling of the controversial age limit which seeks to lift the presidential age limit capped at 75 years, Bafana hit studios this month and produced a reggae tune titled “Batutunze”.
Given the current political pressures, the song has easily found its way into the masses in addition to his image as a big Artist.
What is in the Song?
The self-proclaimed Katonda wa Ragga cites that leaders have “sold off the country” — Uganda.
He also speaks of uncertainty of the future generation in what he sings as deteriorating state of affairs with moral degeneration, corruption, culture erosion.
In the jam produced by Rickson Kuzim, Bafana prays that God saves Uganda “from vultures and greedy leaders.”
The video of the song was directed Jerome Kakande.
