Police in Kampala has arrested Nigerian Artiste Omah Lay for flouting COVID-19 guidelines. Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Oweyisigire has confirmed.
The manager of the venue where the concert took place Ddungu Ivan and the Events manager Prim Kasana are all held at Katwe police Station.
Nigerian Afro-Fusion singers Omah Lay and Tems whisked away from singer Bebe Cool who had called on Ugandan authorities to block the singers from staging a successful concert at Speke Resort Munyonyo last Saturday.

The ‘Lo Lo and Damages’ singers staged The Big Brunch singers AfroBeats Edition that saw the seemingly hungry revelers get out of the lockdown stress to party like no more.
Bebecool had vowed to suffocate the Nigerian artistes’ show down after all Ugandan artistes too had been denied access to stage performance since March in respect to the set Ministry of Health guidelines against the spread of COVID-19.
With several local artistes still swimming in extreme poverty because of being jobless yet the government had not supported them with compensation despite adhering to the strict COVID-19 health guidelines, Bebe Cool expressed his dissatisfaction as he believed the development would be a bit unfair to the local entertainment industry.
