That is after I survived gun attacks more than once, more than twice, I was targeted. My car was riddled with bullets, flattening old tyres. And at one occasion, the military shoot into the windscreen of my car.

“Miraculously, I’m still alive and nobody was shot dead in my car. However, many of my close allies have been shot dead.”

Bobi Wine started his music career in the early of year 2000 with lyrics that talked about urban poverty and political oppression, and backed by good beats.

The 38-year-old rose from the slums of the country to become a popular musician, and now harnessing on his popularity to contest in the upcoming election.

He has made a promise of equality to fellow Ugandans, “a Uganda where we are respected and applauded on an international platform, not known for poverty, disease, corruption, and for dictatorship – that’s the Uganda we envision as a generation”.

Wine claimed that the election has been stolen and rigged for not being allow to campaign, he said: “the election is being stolen and rigged,

By the mere fact that I was arrested on the day of nomination, that I’ve been blocked from campaigns, that my posters are not allowed to be there, that I’m not allowed to have any billboards, that I’m blocked from radio and TV stations, that I’m a presidential candidate who’s not allowed to drive on main roads or even to address people in towns – that’s a rig.”

Wine is banking on the population of young people in the country, as the country is one of the countries with youngest population in the world,

According to Sky News, Wine has suffered multiple arrests from the government who has also deployed the military to prevent any opposition attempts to create civil unrest that could cause regime change.

With doggedness, Wine has said that he will continue despite saying his life is at risk. “I live every day as if it’s the last day. My life is threatened, the life of my wife is threatened, my close allies and everybody that associates with me.

But we keep going knowing that our lives do not end with us. So many people have already paid the ultimate price, and my life is not any much more valuable than the lives of the people of Uganda.”

He called on Ugandans to vote and change the country forever, as the election comes up on Thursday.

This is our only opportunity,” he said. “We are non-violent. So we are using this election as a protest to speak – and speak loudly.”

Copyright Suit: Tracy Chapman Wins $450K Against Nicki Minaj

Tracy Chapman has won the Copyright Suit against Nicki Minaj.

Nicki Minaj will be paying Tracy Chapman to settle her copyright infringement claims over “Sorry,” a derivative of the song “Baby Can I Hold You.”

Minaj is expected to pay a sum of $450,000 as the penalty for taking another person’s work without permission.

She made the offer to Chapman so as to avoid prosecution on the illegality which was accepted by Chapman.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote: “On Thursday, documents became public in California federal court reflecting the fact that Chapman had accepted Minaj’s offer of judgment. As a result, the two will not proceed to a trial later this year. By accepting Minaj’s offer, Chapman not only scores a win in the case and $450,000, the esteemed singer also avoids being responsible for costs had a jury eventually decided her claims weren’t worth that amount“.

Chapman had filed the case in October, 2018 but the hearing came up months after Minaj had released her album, “Queen”.

The single “Sorry”, a collaboration she did with Nas, not in the Queen album but was actually leaked by a popular radio DJ, Funkmaster Flex.

According to report, Minaj and her representatives had earlier approached Chapman for the usage of the content which Chapman rejected.

On summary judgment, U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips came to the interesting conclusion that Minaj had a fair use right to use the song in the studio to enable musical experimentation — “A ruling uprooting these common practices would limit creativity and stifle innovation within the music industry” — while setting up a trial to explore the facts and responsibility for the leak and ultimate distribution of the song. Minaj may have had some hopes of ultimate prevailing, though there was still significant evidence against her – The Hollywood Reporter reported

Finally, both sides have now agreed to settle with $450,000 as a reasonable amount for compensation.
