“... It's also good for you to think you are better than me. The competition is good. But remove words/gossip from it, especially remove women... What annoyed me most are the people who involve women. I have to pass this warning, that if any musician involves my wife in music industry things, I'll beat you. I've said this publically. You involve my woman who is at home sleeping with children…” said Cool in an old video seen by this reporter.

Cool is one of the most controversial musicians in Uganda and once in a while, he utters outrageous statements that budding singers latch on to trigger him so they get his attention for media clout.

King Saha’s hit song Zakayo was composed to diss Cool. While Saha is a talented singer, one could argue that the angle of dissing Cool also gave momentum to the song’s popularity.

Cool has beefed with almost every big artiste in the industry, including Jose Chameloene, Bobi Wine, Eddy Kenzo, A Pass, and Cindy Sanyu.

The latest recurring feud is with Gravity Omutujju with whom they even have a song together.

Omutujju is one of the musicians that have attacked Cool’s wife.

During a media interview, Omutujju made fun of Zuena’s song titled Owa Boda.

"Make your cakes, romance your man, but leave industry issues alone. You know nothing about them. Just because you tried singing [mimics her singing her song titled Owa Boda] and failed. So, madam, us who have been able to sing well-received music, and your husband tried to elbow out one of them, don't judge. Don't come out to say that he wishes well for others, he only wishes well for you, when you are in bed together," Omutujju said.

Omutujju’s beef with Cool stems from a number of issues, including the time he [Cool] found him singing at a bar and took a microphone away from him.
