Omah Lay

Singer Omah Lay has said he did not organize the show that took place in Uganda on Saturday.

The 23-year-old made this statement in a series of tweets on Monday.

He said the Uganda police are blocking Nigeria from securing his release.

“I didn’t organize a show, I came on stage and saw teeming fans and sang to them,” he wrote.

In another tweet he said, “Why is Uganda not letting @NigeriaMFA step into this? They have been trying to secure our release to no avail.”

Omah added that he and Tems are in cuffs.

“I’m in cuffs in Uganda right now with Tems,” he wrote.

Omah and Tems performed in Uganda on December 12.

They were arrested by the Uganda police on Sunday.

The Uganda police in a tweet said the singers and some other people were arrested for holding an unauthorized concert.

“Those arrested are Ivan Ddungu, the manager of the place where the concert was held, Omah Lay the musician and Prim Kasana, Events Manager, who contracted Omah Lay to sing,” they wrote.

Tems is yet to speak on her arrest as of press time.

Omah and Tems are one of the nominees for the Headies next rated category.
