Our relationship was not love at first sight- Bobi Wine says as he celebrates 20 years marriage anniversary with Barbie

Singer and politician Bobi Wine has come out to reveal that his love life with wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi wasn’t love at first sight.

Despite being one of the most influential, lovely and adorable couples, the singer says the love grew and is still growing.

The ex presidential candidate made the remarks in a Facebook post as he celebrated 20 years anniversary since he met Barbie.

He recalled the first words he told Barbie about his struggling lifestyle.

She neither accepted nor rejected him but took him on and since then the two have been together.

“Barbie Kyagulanyi, on the 16th of February in 2002 at the National Theatre, I whispered my first words into your ears.

I told you my story, my fears and my hopes and I asked you to trust me. You didn’t say no and you didn’t say yes, you just held my hand and took me for a walk,” Bobi posted on Facebook.

Bobi Wine also added that he and Barbie were cast to play the President’s and first lady’s role in a play at the National Theatre.

Little did they know that this was a prophesy for the future.

“Dr Mercy Mirembe Ntangaare wrote that play ‘Lady will you marry me?’ and cast me to act as President and you as the first lady but little did she know she was fulfilling a prophesy. As we acted on stage, deep inside I meant every single word in my lines. No wonder I brought out the character perfectly. It was a love affair conceived in art and born on stage. It was not love at first sight, it grew and still growing,” BobiWine further added.

Among the promises Bobi Wine made to Barbie was that she would never have to share him with anyone.

He’s therefore glad to have kept this promise and said that he’s not sure where they are going but one thing he’s sure of is that they will always walk together.
