The police in Uganda, has confirmed that they have arrested and detained Nigerian singer Omah Lay. Mr. Lay who performed last night at a concert held at Speke Resort Munyonyo, was picked by Katwe Police together with the venue manager Ivan Dungu and events manager Prim Kasana.
His arrest follows a public outcry by Ugandan entertainers who castigated the Police for allowing international artistes to hold concerts while the local ones are denied.
A recent tweet from Ugandan Owoyesigyire, reads; “Nigerian Artist Omah lay has been arrested by katwe police, the manager of the venue one Dungu Ivan and the Events manager Prim Kasana are also in custody…”

“But under normal circumstances, the artist was just fulfilling his contract obligation. If its to arrest, the venue owners and l also don’t think this concert tk place without the area police knowing. We wld want to see the OC of the nearby Police arrested!” – Nsubuga Stephen

H.E @KagutaMuseveni ,these people saw adverte but they didn't take action now they have arrested artist after the event,I was suggesting, let the area commanders be held not artist for negligence

As you carry out your investigation, help us answer these very crucial questions.
Did that foreign artist quarantine for the mandatory 14days upon entry?
Who cleared that gathering to take place?
Does he have a covid 19 clearance certificate?
