Popular reggae group, Morgan Heritage released a special song dedicated to Uganda’s artist turned, Bobi Wine.
The Morgan Heritage band members Mojo Morgan and Gramps Morgan worked in collaboration with Bob Marley’s son, Stephen Marley on the song, “Be Free”, with Bobi Wine in mind.
Bobi Wine was arrested on August 13 in Arua and was tortured and charged for treason.
The activist is currently in the USA getting treatment for the injuries he got during detention and at the same time campaigning and fighting for the freedom of Ugandans.
In a tweet, Mojo Morgan dedicated the song to Bobi Wine encouraging him that the journey has just began.
