Speaking during a podcast, he said everybody including the guards were singing along while the songstress led the sessions for the duration of her detention.

Meanwhile, the Uganda police force released Tems and Omah Lay after three days after saying earlier that plans of releasing them on police bond were suspended after the Office of the DPP sanctioned their case file.

They were arrested after performing at The Big Brunch concert which held in Speke Resort, Wavamunno Road, Kampala, Uganda in December 2020.

Assistant Superintendent of Police and Deputy Police Spokesperson, Kampala Metropolitan Police, Luk Owoyesigyire, said in a tweet; “Katwe police have arrested Nigerian Artist Omah Lay, the manager of the venue one Dungu Ivan and the Events manager Prim Kasana are also in custody.

“Temilade Openiyi Aka Ms Tems (Artist) also been arrested with her manager Muyiwa Awomiyi.”
