Bebe Cool has risen above the fray to advise the two dueling artists to focus their creative energies on music production and not on taking potshots at one another.
Focus on music, not fighting one another - Bebe tells son and Saha
Musician and Gagamel top dog Bebe Cool, real name Moses Ssali, has called upon his son Allan Hendrik Ssali and King Saha, real name Mansour Ssemanda, to stop fighting and instead focus on creating music.
However, in a comment sure to spark further dissension between him and King Saha, he maintained that King Saha must stay away from drug use.
"They have time to be productive because they are still young. They should focus on releasing music, they shouldn't go after one another. I just want to King Saha stay away from drugs," he said in an interview recently.
Earlier this week, Allan Hendrick Ssali went after King Saha describing him in with extravagant language after King Saha said he had never heard of him.
However, Ssali later confirmed that there is no bad blood between the two of them even as his latest song "Matayo" points to the contrary.
Ssali’s song was a response to King Saha’s song, Zakayo.
In the song, Saha seemingly takes aim at Bebe Cool, who is purportedly Zakayo in this musical narrative.
In the video for the song, Saha confronts Zakayo and strips him of his titles. A market court finds Zakayo guilty and he is subsequently relieved of his duties.
Stung by this depiction of his father as a defeated man, Ssali took on his filial duties and decided to go after the man who went after his father, King Saha.
It would be touching if it never touched off a war between two artists who Bebe Cool rightly advises to lay down their weapons, and instead pick up their microphones in order to keep Ugandans shaking what their mothers gave them.
