Nigerian singer, Mr Eazi has announced the release of Omah Lay and Tems from police custody in Uganda.
The two musicians were arrested over the weekend for flouting COVID-19 guidelines in Uganda. This is after they performed at a concert in the country’s city, Kampala.
However, after calls on social media for their release, they have been set free by the police. Mr Eazi broke the news on Twitter.
Pleased to hear that My brothers and sisters are to be released & the case is resolved, Big love to everyone who worked on this & Special thanks to @adoniaayebare & The Government of Uganda, Chief Of Justice In Uganda. African relations must keep fostering strong!
On the said issue, Promoters must adhere to Rules and Regulations & be held accountable for flouting these rules. We African Creatives get Little or no support, for the soft power & amount of Jobs we create! The sector must be looked at holistically! God bless Africa.
