The producer called for help and urged fans to demand for his release with the hashtag, “UgandaFreeRexxie.”

The ‘Ko Por Ke’ crooner wrote; “I’ve been arrested at the Ugandan Immigration. Pls I need help. This is so unfair! HELP HELP HELP!!! #UgandaFreeRexxie”

Meanwhile, in another news…

CorrectNG reports that ace singer, Temilade Openiyi, known professionally as Tems recounted her unpleasant experience when she was detained at a prison in Uganda.

Tems and Omah Lay had performed separately at a concert which held in Speke Resort, Kampala, on the 12th of December, 2020. After their arrest which made headlines, Tem and Omah Lay were subsequently detained in prison, but released days later after the Nigerian government’s intervention.

Revisiting the experience during an interview, Tems said she spent two nights in jail. The ‘Try Me’ hit-maker, however, insisted that neither of them broke the COVID-19 restrictions as alleged and she claimed “it was a setup.”

The Grammy winning singer said she thought she was being sent to jail as part of a higher purpose and she was “already settling in” as she emphasized that she adapts very quickly.

Tems said in part; “We didn’t break the [COVID-19] rules. It was basically like a set up. We went to Uganda, I had a show there. It was during COVID year but they had opened things up that time. They had just had a rally in Uganda. People were going out. It wasn’t on lockdown. It was the aftermath.”
