Mikie Wine Controversy

Mikie's real name Michael Mukwaya, has come out to address his stand on their beef saying he has no issue with the Gagamel boss as an individual but just disagrees with most of his beliefs and ideologies.

This was during an interview with Spark TV where he spoke on the relationship between Solomon Kampala, Bobi Wine's son and Bebe Cool’s son Alpha Ssali. This is after a photo of the two boys chilling surfaced on the internet shocking fans since their parents allegedly do do not see eye to eye. 

‘’Solomon and Alpha have been friends since childhood because they went to the same schools. So they got used to each other and always met on a daily basis."

Mikie Wine also shared the two are on good terms and have a cordial relationship as they had met at a certain hangout and actually exchanged pleasantries showing that the beef is nothing personal...or is it?

Mikie Wine was a victim of a house break-in which was quite traumatizing especially for his wife. It was reported that a group of thieves broke into his house and they were armed. According to Mikie Wine as he had a chat with media.

"It's a sad morning, Today morning at around 3:00 am I was attacked by thieves who broke into my house with pangas... they woke us up and told us to be very silent, they asked for our phones and all the money we had in the house Fortunately they threw the phones at the fence from where they made their exit and took off", he said.

Mikie Wine continued talking about the incident and mentioned that they took money which was to sustain his family throughout the lockdown. He reported the matter to the local police station and they arrived an hour later to run a search.

"We immediately contacted police which came about 1hr later with sniffer dogs but they could not trace the thieves. They said more investigation will "be carried out. They took all my money that has been sustaining us in this lockdown and no other valuables where taken. We thank God that no one was hurt but please keep us in your prayers in these trying times. For God and my country."

Mikie Wine was once arrested at his own home and this came after a missing school girl was found in his house. When the girl's parents found out that their child had not been to school for a while they reported the matter to the police. 

Upon investigation, the police found out from the girl's friends, that she had been seen hanging around with Mikie Wine. When the police stormed Mikie Wine's house, they found him with the missing girl. 

The matter was handled between Miki Wine's family and the mother of the girl. 

Mikie Wine House 

The house is located along Gayaza road near Bobi Wine’s home.

"I began constructing the house four years back. It has been so hard building this house but the more it has been hard, the more I have been determined not to stop.
At some point, I thought I wouldn’t finish it up but I said no way because if left it halfway, I would be looser. So, by all means - had to make sure I completed it.” he said.

Mickie Wine says this house is the fruit of hard work, persistence and the need to prove to some people that he is not a loser.
