Using Music to Inspire Social Change

In well packaged lyrics backed up with hip rhythms, Bana Mutibwa’s music rails off the conventional course, conveying messages of direct inverse to political proposals to the powers that be.

His two songs, Tetubonga Nawe and Tojikwatako Nawe, have been released in politically torrid times. Tetubonga nawe, loosely translated to ‘we are not with you’, was a response to tubonga nawe (we are with you), a song that rallied support for the re-election of Mr Museveni as President in 2016 after 30 years in power.
