I will die before you, Bobi Wine tells wife
Ugandan musician and politician Bobi Wine has paid glowing tribute to his wife Barbara.
Bobi Wine, born Robert Kyagulanyi, explained in the emotional tribute his better half has touched him in a way no one else has.
He wrote: “When I am no more, and my corpse is laying cold in a wooden box. When the world is actively discussing what kind of life I lived and my loved ones are preparing a send off for me. When speeches are being written, when my burial dress code is being agreed on and death announcements are going around!”
Adding: “She is the reason I am alive today. I do not think you have touched anyone’s life like you did to mine. I however will say that while you still live because I will go before you my love.”
Barbara has been praised as a humble and laid back woman who married the popular politician when he was struggling to make ends meet in the ghetto and stood by his side as he made his way to the top.
Now 40, Bobi Wine started as a musician and is known for hits such as Situka, Mr Money, Kiwaani and Afande.
The couple is blessed with four children.
Bobi Wine who contested for Uganda’s presidency in the 2021 polls has in the past been arrested detained for disagreeing with President Yoweri Museveni’s regime.
While in prison, Barbara claimed his husband’s health had deteriorated and they were fears he would pass on.
