Bebe Cool Challenges Bobi Wine to Contribute Shs 5M For Danz Kumapeesa’s Medical Bill

Popular Ugandan singer Bebe Cool has challenged fellow musicians, events promoters and Ugandans in general to contribute towards music producer Danz Kumapeesa’s medical bill.

Danz Kumapeesa is the producer behind hit songs like Winnie Nwagi’s “Musawo”, “You’re Sweet” by Rema and “Mbozi Za Malwa” by Bebe Cool and Sauti Sol among others.

He was in June this year admitted at St Francis Hospital Nsambya after being beaten up by unknown thugs. To date, he is still in critical condition.

Bebe Cool in a lengthy Facebook post revealed that be will contribute Shs 5 million towards Danz kumapeesa’s growing medical bill, which currently stands at more than Shs 19 million.

In what he dubbed the “5 million challenge for Danz Kumapeesa”, the Gagamel Entertainment boss challenged fellow music giants Bobi Wine and Jose Chameleone as well as James Wasula of UPRS and promoters Balam Barugahara and Kavuma to also contribute Shs 5 million each towards the noble cause, an amount he believes they can afford.

In a related development, NTV ‘The Beat’ entertainment show host Douglas Lwanga is organizing a charity music concert whose proceeds will also be used for Danz Kumapeesa’s treatment. The details about this concert have not been communicated yet.

“5 million challenge for DANS KUMAPESA..

Am calling upon the following Ugandan musicians to take a stand and pay these bills for this fellow Ugandan , a producer and youthful soul.

UGANDANS have supported us for long and we have made our lives better through their support.

I also ask Mr James Wasula of UPRS,promoter Ballam,promoter Kavuma to join the list because people have supported your events.

Am sure the list below can afford the kind gesture of 5m ugsh about (1500 US dollars).

Bebecool -5 million

Jose Chameleon -5 million

Bobi wine -5 million

James Wasula -5 million

Promoter Balam -5 million

Promoter Kavuma-5 million

I know you have done this before but let us lead as examples here because even after paying this bill he needs more financial support for the next two years and other brothers and sisters in the industry will come in then.

But we will still appreciate whoever brings in a significant amount at this moment so that Dans can leave the hospital to avoid more bills pilling.

It is our responsibility to give back to those who have given us through their sons and daughters not forgetting who we all claim to be, richest, best, big, number one, educated blablabla.

The above claims come at a cost of responsibility and good leadership.

Pliz drop the kind gesture to the mother called Kisakye Jennifer +256 779 103031 in nsambya hospital

Thank you for your help Uganda.”
