DJ Michael Benjamin Owor aka Bush Baby is currently bedridden, battling severe kidney disease that is threatening to end his life.
According to sources close to him, Bush Baby, who became popular for working with east African Radio, EATV and Urban TV, plus playing in several Kampala night clubs, is critically ill
He has since appealed out to all his fans, friends and Good Samaritans to help him raise Shs15M, such that he can undergo a kidney operation at a specialized medical facility which is scheduled between July and August 2021, short of which his life will be no more.
We have established that several artists have since started a campaign to create awareness amongst Ugandans about Bush Baby’s health condition such that they can help him raise funds to foot the hefty medical bills.
However, a certain section of the industry is divided. Some people are wondering why such a veteran DJ is failing to get help from different media houses he has worked with before. There is an allegation that all the huge media houses have ignored him to the last.
Celebrated artist Juliana Kanyomozi has already shared on her social media platforms a video of Bush Baby in which he is seen pleading with all Ugandans to help him raise money for the operation such that he can have another chance to life.
Bush Baby is one of Uganda’s longtime media and entertainment personalities who scooped the following awards for his great works; Buzz Teeniez TV personality – 2011, Abryanz dressed for success – 2015 and Buzz best radio show – 2019.
