It’s now been Nine years since Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine married his then longtime girlfriend Barbara Itungo in a very publicized wedding. The couple tied the knot at Rubaga Cathedral and there after moved through Kampala streets on their horse carriage to give their fans and supporters a chance to have a glimpse at them.
While we may have watched the wedding on our screens, Bobi Wine has disclosed a piece of advice his father gave him on that day through his Facebook page.
“Son, this ring means a commitment and promise to LOVE someone’s daughter the same way that I have LOVED you. I know you have already loved her for 10years but with this ring, it’s a covenant not only between you and her but between our two families and our communities. If you keep this commitment and promise, I will sleep well even in my grave”, said my father on 27th August 2011 in the dressing room.
Dear Barbie Kyagulanyi, now you know that I LOVE YOU not only on my behalf but on behalf of my parents and all my people. It’s been 19years and you’re still the one that makes my world go around.
Happy anniversary my love.
Barbie also had something special to share about her husband as she posted a picture of her wedding day, while in her husband’s arms with the caption;
“To be held like this by the one I love so deeply is one of my dreams come true.
Being loved back with no reservations is a blessing. Taata, you have loved me at my lowest and elevated me at every given opportunity never making me feel any less. My nineteen years of staying under the same roof with you have been years of self-realization, utmost growth and total bliss. I am lucky to be your wife, to have you for a best friend and to be the mother of your children. I am excited about the coming times ahead. For better, for best, for the good and the pretty!
Happy Wedding anniversary Bobi Wine.”
With the addition of the years the couple spent together before making it official, they are actually celebrating 19 years of love.
My wedding wishes them a happy marriage anniversary.
