Just hours ago, famed Ugandan artiste, Bebe Cool dropped new music amidst social media heat from Nigerian artistes and Ugandans on Twitter. The heat stems from his alleged involvement in the arrest of Nigerian artistes Omah Lay and Tems on Sunday. Bebe Cool seemingly released this song to shift the conversation from the whining Nigerians.
“Surrender” is the title of the song and Bebe Cool seems to still be relying on the bouncy instrumentation that little-known Producer Ronnie delivered on ‘Wire Wire’. The addition to this is a dominant electric guitar. The new release, ‘I Surrender’ is, however, good on its own even if you have not listened to ‘Wire Wire’.
“It’s been a tough year but we have to co-exist with covid-19 and for that reason, let the games begin with “Surrender”. In this sweet melody, you are letting go of everything you have been doing and concentrating on that one thing. For lovers, this is the best commitment song.” Bebecool captioned his post as he officially released his song on social media.
The arrest of Omah Lay and Tems followed the duo’s performance at an event in Munyonyo. The event dubbed ‘The Brunch’ happened amidst a government-instituted lockdown to avert the spread of COVID-19. The Nigerian duo was later released after almost 12 hours in police custody and another almost 12 hours in prison. The duo has since blamed its arrest and shocking experience on Bebe Cool. They claim he notified, involved, and influenced the authorities.
