On “beef” in
It’s now cliché to say
Bobi wine & Bebe Cool Vs Jose Chameleone
This is probably the first beef story the media brought to us and arguably the first beef feud on the Ugandan music scene. Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool were still comrades under the Fire Base Crew and couldn’t see eye to eye with Jose Chameleone and his
Bobi Wine Vs Bebe Cool.
I can’t claim to know when and why they parted ways. Bobi stayed at Fire Base Crew and became the de facto president, Bebe cool went on to form his own label Gagamel. Back then, they both seemed to have mutual respect for each other’s work and both couldn’t be under the same roof with Jose Chameleone. Recently, Bebe seems to be comfortable in Jose’s company but the animosity with his former comrades at Fire Base Crew has reached alarming levels. At the height of Bebe and Zuena’s mini-break-up, Bobi released a song taking a swipe at Bebe’s marriages woes. Bebe Cool later released his hot single- Bogolako after getting back with wife Zuena. The epitome of this beef came to the fore late last year when they held their album launches on the same day – a feat never seen before on the music scene here. The debate on who got the biggest crowd on the night is still raging on in newspaper social pages and on radio shows at large.

This is the closest you will get to brotherly love gone sour. Jose groomed the two guys under his
Bebe Cool /Gagamel Vs Goodlyf.
This will probably be the mother of all feuds this year-2010. Undoubtedly, this has been boiling in the pot for some time and the beef was well served on New Year’s Eve celebrations at the Hotel Africana in
This beef game is undoubtedly immortalized by two famous American HIP HOP and Rap artists- Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur. Unfortunately, the feuding claimed their lives and a few of their comrades on the sides too. The debate of who killed who, or how who plotted for whom is still a strong one in music chat rooms and on music blogs all over the world. Some people even claim Tupac Shakur is still alive. I hope we won’t get to that in our humble Pearl of Africa.
