Mr. Eazi has revealed in a fresh update on Twitter that Nigerian musicians Omah Lay and Tems have finally been released after being in Ugandan police custody since Sunday.
Omah Lay and Tems were arrested after their performance on Sunday night at a concert held at Speke Resort Munyonyo along with his manager and events manager Prim Kasana by Katwe Police.
His arrest follows a public outcry by Ugandan entertainers who complained that the Ugandan Police have allowed international artists to hold concerts while the local ones are denied. They are currently remanded in different prisons till Wednesday, December 16, following their arraignment before the Makindye Division court in Kampala on Monday.
The issue has generated a lot of debate on social media as other Nigerian musicians rally for the Nigerian government to intervene. This was after Omah tweeted that he was being treated like a criminal after which photos of him being handcuffed with Tems surfaced online. Fortunately, the pressure mounted on the Ugandan government has yielded results. This was confirmed by Mr.Eazi who said the duo have been released. He posted;
Pleased to hear that My brothers and sisters are to be released & the case is resolved, Big love to everyone who worked on this & Special thanks to @adoniaayebare & The Government of Uganda, Chief Of Justice In Uganda. African relations must keep fostering strong!
