Popstar turned Politician Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has finally broken his silence about the arrest of Nigerian artist Omah lay. The presidential aspirant has rubbished the Covid-19 talk.
“The arrest of Omah Lay, the Nigerian artist is not about COVID19, it’s an act of shame by a corrupt government that operates on double standards,” Bobi Wine said.
He added; “The artist was booked, obtained a work permit and performed under police protection, why arrest him?”
“While some Ugandan artists are staging pro M7 shows with thousands of people in blatant violation of the same SOPs under the guard of police and the military, a foreign artist is persecuted to cover up the shame” he added.
