Bobi Wine Releases Song About Coronavirus Outbreak

The Ugandan politician teams up with fellow musician Nubian Li to spread awareness about the COVID-19 outbreak.

Ugandan politician Bobi Wine has recently released a song to raise awareness around the growing coronavirus outbreak.

He teamed up with fellow Ugandan musician Nubian Li to spread the message of the importance of personal hygiene and social distancing.


In the song, which has since garnered more than 700 000 views on social media, Bobi Wine sings, "The bad news is that everyone is a potential victim but the good news is that everyone is a potential solution/Sensitise the masses to sanitise/Keep a social distance and quarantine."

Admittedly, there have been a number of songs about the coronavirus that have been released of late but to Bobi Wine's credit, his is one of the really good ones.

According to the politician, there have also been numerous requests to have the song played on television and radio.
