Media house Vision Group will soon be in the dock if Ugandan reggae musician Moses Ssali a.k.a Bebe Cool’s recent Facebook threat is something to go by.
The singer revealed on Sunday he plans to take legal action against vernacular paper Bukedde over defamation after the paper alleged in its Monday edition that his dreadlocks were chopped.
According to the paper, Bebe Cool while at Sophie Nantogo’s concert in Kasangati, a Kampala suburb is alleged to have got into a fight with bouncers at the event as he demanded payment for his performance. However the bouncers are said to have overpowered him and in the process cut off his dreadlocks.
Now, the singer through his Facebook page says that he intends to sue the paper he referred to as ‘Donkies’ for defaming him.
Below is what Bebe Cool posted on his Facebook page
