Singer Hillary Kiyaga, known to many as Dr Hilderman has named his newly born son after fellow musician and politician, Bobi Wine.
Hilderman christened his baby ‘Bobi Criston Wokota’.
Amid the excitement of birthing a bouncing baby boy, the musician famous for his song ‘Mazongoto’ took to his social media to post: “Welcome to the world my son. I have today named you BOBI CRISTON WOKOTA”.
“Be aman of courage like the great man i have name you after,” he added.
‘Wokota’, the other of the three names is drawn from Hilderman’s place of birth, Mawokota in modern day Mpigi district.
“I was born from a great family in mawokota, automatically you are a Mawokotanian. Like your name WOKOTA, let it be a password to remind you that you are a born of this great land, work towards making it a better land always. God bless you my son always,” the singer wrote.
Going by how events have unfolded recently, it might not come out as a surprise that Hilderman chose to name his child ‘Bobi’. He has in recent political campaigns been seen alongside Bobi Wine and actually subscribes to the ‘People Power’ movement.
When Bobi Wine, other artists and concerned individuals were strongly protesting the taxes on social media and Mobile Money transactions, Hilderman was closely involved.
He has recently labeled himself a campaigner for justice.
