Oyogist.com has learnt that Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Tems, has narrated her ordeal in Uganda prison after being detained for violating COVID-19 guidelines in the country.
Oyogist. com had earlier reported that Omah Lay and Tems were arrested by the Ugandan police days ago after their performance on Saturday night at The Big Brunch, a concert that was held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Rd, Kampala.
Taking to her Twitter page on Thursday, Tems thanked everyone who supported them during their trying times.
The statement partly reads: *On Saturday, 12 December, I was scheduled to perform with Omah Lay at the Big Brunch: When we arrived Uganda we were met with such a warm reception, including press events promoting the event.
“This promotion alongside the safety terms outlined in the performance agreement, and the presence of authorities at the event, assured us that necessary approvals had been fully met by the organizers to ensure a safe and compliant event in Kampala. I’m truly saddened that attendees could have possibly been exposed to Coronavirus
“I would have never 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 Coronavirus requires responsibility from everyone as a world citizen, a responsibility I take very seriously.”
