Omah Lay a top Nigerian super star was arrested yesterday by Uganda police on allegations of holding what police described as an illegal music concert.
The National Unity Platform presidential candidate Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine a musician by professional has come out to condemn the arrest of his fellow singer.
He said , the arrest of Omah Lay, the Nigerian artist is not about COVID19, it’s an act of shame by a corrupt government that operates on double standards.
The artist( Omah Lay) was booked, obtained a work permit and performed under police protection, why arrest him? Bobi Wine wondered.
While some Ugandan artists are staging pro M7 shows with thousands of people in blatant violation of the same SOPs under the guard of police and the military, a foreign artist is persecuted to cover up the shame. Bobi Wine fumed.
The Kyadondo East MP has joined other Ugandans who have condemned the arrest of Omah Lay who is followed by millions of Africans for his music.
He was sent to Kitalya prison until Wednesday when he will be back to court for mention of his case.
