Ziggy Wyne, real name Michael Kalinda, was an upcoming musician signed to the Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine’s record label, firebase has died.
According to Bobi Wine’s post on his facebook post, Ziggy died on Sunday night at Mulago National Referral hospital.
“Last night, my brother, friend and fellow artiste Ziggy Wyne passed on at Mulago hospital,” Kyagulanyi posted on Monday August 5, 2019.
The deceased succumbed to the excessive injuries sustained from an attack when he was kidnapped and tortured by unknown people who allegedly robbed him off his belongings.
A CT scan done slightly before Ziggy died pointed to serious brain damage. “We found that he was bleeding in the brain,” one of the health personnel who preferred anonymity said.
“Zigy Wyne’s last days on earth were very painful. Zigy was a solid member of the Firebase Crew, a hard-working young man and strong supporter of People Power. Like many young Ugandans, he was looking forward to a better country,” Bobi Wine said in his post.
