Barbie to Bobi: You’re the ‘most inspirational man of the century’
Today, National Unity Platform (NUP) honcho, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine turns 40!
As we report this, BD messages are flowing in from all corners of social media platforms but particularly, the one from his wife, Barbie Itungo caught our attention.
In Barbie’s heartfelt message, he described her special man as the ‘most inspirational man of the century’.
“My best friend is 40 today! If I were to write another book today 10 years after my first, I’d still say that my biggest achievement at this point in life is to be married to you Mr. President. I have been a beneficiary of everything good that a human being can get from having the honor of living with the most inspirational man of the century. Happy birthday my Love.” She shared the message on her wall.
Bobi Wine has also taken to his Facebook page and congratulated himself for having hit the fourth floor. In his message, the NUP darling also named his idols and revealed that they all never made it to 40.
These include; Jesus, Bob Marley, Malcolm X, Dr Martin Luther King, Herman Basudde, Steve Biko, Philly Lutaaya, Thomas Sankara and Tupac.
Below is his message:
“Looking back on my life, I feel like I have lived all my life at just 40.My father was 40 years old when he had me and 40 years later, here I am at 40 with 4 lovely children. I was 4 when our country was taken over and now am 40. What’s with the number ‘4’ and me??
Most of my idols never made it to 40 – Jesus, Bob Marley, Malcolm X, Dr Martin Luther King, Herman Basudde, Steve Biko, Philly Lutaaya, Thomas Sankara, Tupac, etc. I have had the rare opportunity to live this long.For all the mistakes, I take the blame. I hope to use the lessons learned in my next phase of life. For all the accomplishments, the glory goes back to God.I want to thank all of you wonderful people – friends and family for being part of the first part of my life. They say life begins at 40, so let’s toast to life.”
