Nigerian have come together to campaign for the release of singers Omah Lay and Tems following news they have been remanded in prisons for flouting COVID-19 precautions in Uganda.

Recall that on Sunday, the fast-rising stars were arrested together with their managers for holding an illegal concert at Ddungu resort in Munyonyo, which drew a huge crowd despite President Yoweri Museveni’s directives on the prevention of the spread of the pandemic.

Earlier today, Omah Lay and Tems were arraigned before the Makindye Division court in Kampala and remanded in different prisons till Wednesday, December 16. An action which has since angered many celebrities in Nigeria.

Responding to the drama, Omah Lay, whose real name is Stanley Omah Didia, took to Twitter to lament his plight. According to him, he’s just “a singer trying to entertain”, then he proceeded to ask why he’s “being set up in Uganda?”

He followed up with more tweets where he accused the Ugandan Government of not giving him a fair hearing and for blocking the efforts of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from securing their release.

Meanwhile, celebrities including Burna Boy, Runtown, Peter Okoye, DJ Spinall, Tekno, Teni, Do2tun, Fireboy DML, Rema, and others have taken to their social media platforms to call for the immediate release of both Omah Lay and Tems.

P-square’s Peter Okoye also shared an update on the ongoing issue, notifying his followers to be calm as he’s just reached out to the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
