Singer Michael Mukwaya alias Mikie Wine has cleared the air on the ongoing reports about him joining politics.
Wine said he was “considering a leadership role” in 2021.
And just as his brother Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) normally says — he noted that he preferred being called “a leader, not a politician.”
In a phone interview, the self-styled “Sulu Bada” headmaster said that it has always been his dream to join leadership although he hasn’t known where and how to lead.
“I am waiting for the people to point me out and tell me where I will lead best,” he said.
“Just like they told my brother, Mr. Kyagulanyi who even didn’t have a hint that he was going to be an MP.”
When asked whether he asked his brother for advice, the “Aneganye” singer said that he was an old man who needed to make decisions on his own.
“I am happy he (Bobi Wine) is in parliament already, but that doesn’t mean I can’t think for myself anymore. I know what is good for the people and the people know it even more,” he added.
Wine also rubbished claims that he was joining politics due to a failed musical career, saying that he was even having other projects set to release soon.
“People have known me for music and I don’t think I can run away from it. My career is not down and it will forever be on,” he said
Mikie Wine joins a number of entertainers who intend to join politics, including rapper Navio who also declared his intentions for joining parliament come 2021.
