In a surprising turn of events, the meteoric rise of Ugandan rookie singer Patrick Mulwana, famously known as Alien Skin, has been marred by a fierce backstage battle involving veteran event organizer Abbey Musinguzi, popularly known as Abitex, and fellow musician Pius Mayanja, also known as Pallaso.
The controversy reached its climax recently when units of the National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters launched a scathing attack on Alien Skin, threatening to boycott his future shows and music due to alleged political affiliations. However, it appears that the true instigators behind this turmoil are not the NUP supporters, but rather the tangled web of disputes involving Abitex and Pallaso.
The drama began when Alien Skin found himself caught between Abitex and Pallaso over a performance fee dispute for the upcoming “Nkwacho” festival. Sources reveal that Alien Skin initially agreed to Abitex’s offer of UGX15M for the show, but upon consultation with his team, he reconsidered and requested a revision of the offer. This decision sent Abitex into a fit of rage, resulting in threats and a cancellation of the show.
As the situation escalated, Abitex allegedly took further measures, including patenting Alien Skin’s brand name ‘Fangone‘ to undermine the singer’s business prospects. Despite these attempts, Alien Skin stood firm and unfazed.
Meanwhile, Pallaso, who had been a central figure in Alien Skin’s rise, made his own contribution to the controversy. Pallaso’s infamous slap on Alien Skin earlier in their careers propelled the rookie singer into the spotlight and garnered attention from fans and critics alike. However, Pallaso’s involvement in the ongoing feud has added another layer of complexity to the unfolding narrative.
While NUP supporters attempted to attribute Alien Skin’s success to their party and its leader, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the singer himself dismissed any political allegiance claims. He affirmed his commitment to producing music that transcends political affiliations and resonates with fans of all backgrounds.
It is worth noting that despite the social media storm surrounding the controversy, genuine music enthusiasts have shown an unwavering support for Alien Skin. The feud and political posturing have done little to dissuade loyal fans from embracing the artist’s work and attending his shows.
As the drama continues to unfold, it becomes clear that the rise of Alien Skin, far from being solely attributed to any political party, is the result of his undeniable musical talent, fan engagement, and the unique circumstances that have shaped his career. In a landscape where music transcends political boundaries, Alien Skin remains a shining example of how art can triumph over the noise of political discord.
