“When the struggle is over, we shall wear the victor’s crown. We shall walk with swag in the new Uganda,” goes the chorus of the song.
KAMPALA- Ugandan Musician Bobi Wine aka Robert Kyagulanyi has dropped a new song video titled Tuliyambala Engule in which he gives Ugandans hope for a new Uganda.

The song features big artists like of King Saha, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Dr Hilderman, Irene Ntale, Irene Namatovu, and Nubian Li.
The video directed by Kim XP also features several politicians who show face as they sing and dance along to the message being passed on.
Produced by Dan Magic, Bobi Wine's long time comrade, the video runs for 4:32 minutes.
The video which was on Tuesday posted by Bobi Wine on his face book and YouTube pages has been widely shared on various social media platforms.
The Kyarenga singer who is also the Kyadondo East MP stresses the need for unity in purpose and urges Ugandans for more commitment to the struggle to build what he described as a new Uganda.
Kyagulanyi who is the face of a budding movement called "People Power" has of recent been critical of President Museveni's government and has launched a campaign to dislodge him.
In the song he sings of how the People Power movement will celebrate victory after winning the struggle against corruption, dictatorship, embezzlement of funds and land grabbing among others.
It is a song of hope and victory.
"Although challenging, 2018 has showed us how much potential we have to make our country better when we are determined, united and more committed," Kyagulanyi posted on his Facebook page when announcing the new song.
"My wish for the new year is that as Ugandans, we shall be more united in purpose, more committed to the struggle, more courageous to confront the forces of evil, and more hopeful that we shall build a new Uganda which works for all of us," he added.
Pastor Bugembe previously appeared in the Tubonga Nawe song which was a campaign song for President Museveni in 2016.
In the song, Pastor Wilson Bugembe emphasises the need for unity and in the video is seen uniting the people wearing yellow with those putting on red.
Ntale sings of the state of health sector in which she describes how there will be victory against women dying while giving birth.
Asked why she featured on the song, Ntale said she is a musician and had to put a message.
"I'm a musician I sing songs and can sing on anything. I don't have any political ambitions and I shouldn't be misunderstood because I just highlighted the issue and the message is very clear," Ntale says.
Like Bugembe, King Saha also sung in the Tubonga Nawe song.
In Tuliyambala Engule he sings on how when taxes are reduced, and farmers able to get market for their produce, Ugandans will wear the victor's crown.
