Top of the charts

Picking up on a story first posted by Margaret Nunne on October 25, 2010, President Yoweri Museveni has become a rap-superstar in Uganda. DJs in Kampala are expecting a slew of requests at clubs this weekend, all for "You Want Another Rap?" by the pop-star president. Some of the DJs have even refered to Museveni as "a big name artist." Although many are viewing the song as a political tool for the incumbent of 25 years, others disagree, stating "it's not political. It's just a song. I could play it even if there were opposition supporters here. I wouldn't worry." Museveni's opposition have been working on a rap-song of their own, with the title "Your Rap is Crap," although expectations for its success are low.
