Big Eye StarBoss makes music comeback with song 'Uganda Olemwa'

Ugandan musician Ibrahim Mayanja, popularly known as Big Eye, releases new song titled 'Uganda Olemwa' loosely translated to mean 'In Uganda you easily give up or accept defeat', addressing the socio-economic situation in the country.

After cutting ties with the National Resistance Movement (NRM) a few weeks ago, the singer decides to investigate the public's hostility towards him. He finds that he has been detached from the grievances of the people, while being 'Big I' forgetting those who supported him to become the 'StarBoss'.

Unlike the eye of Sauron in 'The Lord of the Rings', Big Eye turns his support to the public as he addresses the issues it relays to him in a summary under the white flag slogan 'Uganda Olemwa'.

Speaking for his people, he highlights the price fluctuations that have left many feeling out of control, and the malnutrition that runs rampant in many homesteads due to lack of resources to sustain the three-meals-a-day lifestyle.

The high maternal mortality rate during childbirth and bad roads especially the one leading to Kiruddu Referral Hospital that worsens the health condition of sick people headed for treatment.

Although he must be talking about his bumpy experience of being pelted with bottles and his music career suffering when he decided to walk with the NRM party. Some music critics are suspicious of Big Eye's motives behind the song citing that he might be a 'prodigal son' seeking public sympathy to return to stage.

The StarBoss employs a cover art for the audio as a child looking at a number of screens with headlines about corruption, high prices, high taxes, government bill scandals, and police brutality.
