Nigerian artistes have called for the immediate release of Omah Lay and Tems following their arrest for flouting COVID-19 guidelines in Uganda.
Omah Lay and Tems performed at Ddungu Resort in Munyonyo for hundreds of citizens despite an existing ban on music concerts in the country. They have since been remanded until Wednesday when they will be produced in court for further hearing of the charges pressed against them. In response, Nigerian artistes are now standing up to the authorities using the hashtag #FreeTems and #FreeOmahLay, calling for the artistes’ immediate release.
Wizkid, Burna Boy, Olamide, Teni, Maleek Berry, Mr P, Ycee, Joeboy, Fireboy DML, Rema, Shizzi, and many more are making rounds with a common message.
