Ugandan musician, Cindy Sanyu, recently reacted to the arrest of Nigerian music stars, Omah Lay and Tems, for performing at a packed concert in the East African country.
In a video that has since gone viral on social media, Cindy, criticised the Nigerian musicians for holding a concert in her country while their own artistes starved.
According to the East African singer, artistes in Uganda had their means of making money taken from them due to the coronavirus lockdown as they could not perform at shows.
Cindy said that while Ugandan artistes respected the lockdown, they were the ones ignored the most. She then said that a foreigner then filled up a concert in their own country without social distancing or wearing of masks taking place.
In her words:
“In all our silence, a foreigner had a concert in this country and filled up a concert where there was no social distancing, there were no masks and this idiot even posted it online. He was very proud about the fact that he had a successful concert in Uganda.”
Speaking further she said: “I don’t agree with this. It’s not fair, it is not right by any standards that you look at it. It was a concert and it happened during the lockdown while artistes here are starving.”
