Recall Nigerian singers Omah Lay and Tems were today remanded in prisons until for flouting COVID-19 guidelines in Uganda.
The pair were arrested on Sunday, December 13, together with their managers for holding a concert at Ddungu resort in Munyonyo with large crowds while the country is on lockdown.
Omah Lay and Tems were remanded in different prisons till Wednesday, December 16, following their arraignment before the Makindye Division court in Kampala on Monday.
Reacting on social media, Cindy Sanyu, who recorded a video in her car, said while she and her fellow Ugandan musicians have remained calm, obeying the strict COVID-19 rules, they are ignored the most and yet to receive help since President Yoweri Museveni banned all music concerts, and closed down bars.
She claimed that some of her colleagues are currently starving, sick, and broke because of the strict lockdown. The singer then branded Omah Lay a ‘goat’ for posting about his successful concert in Uganda with fans going mask free and not observing social distancing at the event.
