Early today fast rising Nigerian singer Tems, gives report and word of appreciation concerning her arrest along side with her colleague Omah Lay in Uganda.
On saturday 12 December 2020 i was scheduled to perform with Omah Lay in at the Big Brunch Afrobeats Edition organized by kasana event in Kampala, Uganda. When we arrived 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 the authorities at the event, assured us that the necessary approval 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 Covid 19. I would have never Participated, had i even have the slightest knowledge that the event would not meet standard operating procedures and put Uganda citizen at risk.
The seriousness of Covid 19 requires responsibility from everyone as a world citizen, a responsibility i take very seriously. I am thankful to the Nigerian and Uganda government and everyone behind the scene who played a part in resolving the matters.
To my amazing fans in Uganda i absolutely love you, thank you so much for all your love and support, it has really touched my heart i hope we can meet again in the future. This past week has been difficult but extremely eye opening for me.
I know some may have been worried but despite everything, this experienced has helped me see things for myself. While i was been detained i met some amazing women and children and my eyes were opened to the strife and hurt a lot of women are going through i am so blessed to have experienced the strength and bravery that these women passes to keep them going.
I have newfound compassion and desire to be more involved in making life easier for people such as these, no matter the circumstances. Overall, i am extremely grateful for all the love, the enormous efforts, the countless number of supportive tweet, messages, and posts are overwhelming, and full blown support.
