Bebe Cool, a popular Ugandan musician, has spoken out about the dangers of making unfounded allegations online. Speaking to the press in Nkokonjeru, Mukono district during the burial ceremony of Isma Olaxess, who was shot dead on 6th May 2023 in Kyanja, Bebe Cool urged online users to be cautious with their words.
According to Bebe Cool, he was devastated by the news of Isma’s death and could not believe that he was gone. He even attempted to reach out to Isma via a phone call, but his calls went unanswered. It was only after someone sent him a video of the incident that he realized the gravity of the situation.
“I kept trying calling Isma’s phone until they sent me the video and then I accepted that he had died. I want Ugandans to learn from his good deeds and leave the bad behind,” Bebe Cool revealed.
The musician went on to caution online users to be careful about what they post on social media. He emphasized that making false accusations or spreading rumors can have serious consequences. Not only can it ruin people’s reputations, but it can also lead to violence and even death.
Bebe Cool stressed that the internet is not a place for people to vent their anger or frustrations without any regard for the truth. He called on online users to exercise restraint and to always verify their information before sharing it with others.
Bebe Cool’s words of caution are timely and relevant. In an age where social media has become a powerful tool for communication, it is important for online users to use it responsibly. Making false allegations or spreading rumors can have serious consequences, and it is up to each individual to take responsibility for their actions. Let us all heed Bebe Cool’s advice and exercise restraint and caution in our online interactions.
