From New Vision in Uganda:
FOR Yasin Kazibwe, 23, aka Snake man, his love for snakes is his way of contributing to protection of the species.
In Mutabani [=My son], Kazibwe makes a case for snakes and their natural habitats. The song opens with a son warning his dad about the folly in befriending snakes. The father laughs off his son’s fears and tells him that most deaths are caused by ignorance.
The song has found favour with radio stations like CBS and Akaboozi Kubbiri. “I wrote this song after getting tired of people advising me on the dangers in keeping snakes and accusing me of using occult powers,” Kazibwe says.
He is planning a video for the song. Suffice it to say, expect to see more snakes than queen dancers.
