Omah Lay Writes On His Ugandan Experience After Arriving Nigeria

Fast-rising star Omah Lay has spoken out for the first time following his return to Nigeria after he was arrested and locked up in prison for flouting COVID-19 guidelines in Uganda.

The singer was arrested on Sunday alongside fellow singer Tems for holding an ”illegal concert” at Ddungu resort in Munyonyo where they gathered big crowds, contrary to President Museveni’s directives on the prevention of the spread of Covid-19.

Taking to Twitter to share his experience, Omah Lay described the past few days as ‘toughest of my life’ and claimed he was treated like a common criminal after his arrest.

In one tweet, the singer appreciated fans who came out to watch him perform, before clarifying that it was never his intention to cause any harm that could have likely caused the spread of infectious disease.

According to him, the show promoters confirmed and proved they’d secured all clearances including COVID-19 compliance, paving the way for him to make himself available for the event.
