The arrest of Nigerian artistes – Omah Lay and Tems in Uganda is unarguably the biggest entertainment story this week.
The duo have had a turbulent week from their arrest and detention at a concert in Uganda.
The fast rising stars have however gotten respite from their legal battles which ensued from their invitation to perform in an event in Kampala.
Following the event, they were arrested by the police for breaching the country’s Covid-19 guidelines. The arrest of the artistes who were immediately arraigned in court sparked controversies online from many quarters as some Nigerians demanded their immediate release.
Many other also questioned the circumstances of the arrest saying it was more than meets the eye.
The Nigerian government intervened alongside the help of Uganda’s celebrated musician, Bebe Cool, and the charges against the Nigerian singers were dropped.
The singers who returned to Nigeria on Thursday have taken time out to appreciate their fans and everyone who showed solidarity.
