Nigerian singers Omah Didia aka Omah Lay and Temilade Openiyi alias Tems Wey have apologized to Ugandans for having held an illegal concert on Saturday at Dungu resort Munyonyo which got them arrested.
These have issued statements on their Instagram accounts explaining, appreciating, and apologising to Ugandans.
“First of all I want to thank all the amazing fans that came out to see me in Uganda, the smiles on your happy faces that evening would be one of my happiest moments. Also, I wanna clarify that putting you in harms way was never my intentions. Before we came out to Uganda, the show promoters confirmed and proved to us they had secured all the clearances which included Covid-19 compliance…..,” – Omah Lay said.
Tems also posted saying “I am truly saddened that attendees could have possibly been exposed to Covid-19. I would never have participated had I even the slightest knowledge that the event would not meet standard operating procedures and put Uganda’s citizens at risk. The seriousness of Covid-19 requires responsibility from everyone as a world citizen, a responsibility I take seriously”
Both artists have revealed that the experience was a hard one although it taught them a number of things for example Tems says she was able to meet a number of women and children in prison who changed her life.
They have thanked the Ugandan government and its citizens hoping to meet them again.
