Musician Alexander Bagonza aka A Pass has become the latest person to weigh in on the big 3 (Dr Jose Chameleone, Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine) debate. It should be recalled that these three have been in the news in the past couple of days.
Comparisons as they have already arisen about them were again in the news. These three musicians also came out to add fuel to the debate. It all started with Bobi Wine who said that he has been better than his two peers in a number of aspects and this has been so for the past 20 years.
Bobi Wine said that academically, philosophically, financially, academically and musically he’s always been clear. Chameleone the replied and said that anyone who wants to battle him should come out. This triggered singer A Pass so badly.
Bebe Cool also said that financially, Bobi Wine is nowhere near close. Further he said that his A’ Level PCM combination is better than Bobi Wine’s MDD Diploma. Other musicians such as Buchaman, Jamal, King Saha, Kabaya, Ziza Bafana, Sheebah, Ray G among others came out to take sides. A Pass however feels this is unnecessary and these will always be the diamonds that paved the way current artistes are enjoying.
“I laugh when I see people discussing Bobi Wine, Chameleone, and Bebe Cool. I personally love to focus on the good things, these guys have created music that has made many of us happy and proud to be Ugandans.” He started his say.””
“There is so much to learn from these guys, what to be like and what not to be like. Judging them is from a place of self-righteousness but remember, everyone makes mistakes and we learn from them. So learn, don’t judge.” A Pass continued his rant.
“Whether it’s now or then these guys are diamonds, will always be and will forever be. They are not changing into copper. They will always be remembered as great men that changed the face of Ugandan music. If you are an artist and you have anything disrespectful you want to say to these guys save it because they paved a way for you to enjoy yourself as a Ugandan musician.” He continued.
“Learn from them, and don’t make fun of them. When a man falls, don’t laugh, learn. Lastly, if you spend most of your time looking at what other people are doing with their own time, you need to look closely at yourself and not at them. Let me go back to the studio and work on being the big one.” A Pass concluded.
