The Ugandan government, through Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa, has been apologizing to Nigeria for the arrest and detention of Nigeria singer artists Stanley Omah Didia aka Omah Lay, Temilawa Awomiyi alias.
Police arrested the trio on December 13 for illegal concerts in Ddungu Resort Munyonyo in Kampala.
The fee was dropped after discussion between the main ranking ministries of foreign affairs officials from Uganda and Nigeria.
“We involve Uganda’s authority at the best level,” Nigerian Foreign Minister Geoffrey Jideophor Kwusike Onyeanama revealed on December 14.
Uganda has apologized to Nigeria for the arrest and detention of the trio that has caused social media storms, with the top of Nigeria vowed to boycott Mamas next year in Uganda.
The Kutsa Minister conveyed Kampala’s apology to his partner in Nigeria Onyama.
“Previously today [December 15], Minister of Foreign Affairs Uganda, Sam Kutesa came to me to say in-depth apologies on behalf of the Government of Uganda, the disposal of Omah Lay, Tems and Awonyi,” Onyeam wrote.
