Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has shared the horrible experience he had in Uganda after he was arrested and locked up in prison for flouting COVID-19 rules.

Recall that the singer was arrested for flouting COVID-19 guidelines while performing on Saturday night at a concert held at Speke Resort.

Following diverse reactions from Nigerians and an immediate call for their release by the Nigerian government, the Ugandan police on Tuesday announced that the duo have been released.

According to the police, ”Omah Lay and Tems regained their freedom following a ruling by Okumu Jude Muwone, Chief Magistrate of Makindye.”

The duo arrived Nigeria on Thursday.

The singer took to his Twitter account to share his experience in Uganda, describing the past few days as the toughest days of his life.

According to him, the show promoters confirmed and proved they’d secured all clearances, including COVID-19 compliance, proving that it was ok for him to go ahead with the event.

“Firstly, I want to thank all the amazing fans that came out to see me in Uganda, the smiles on your happy faces that evening would be one of my happiest memories.

“Also I wanna clarify that putting you in harms way was never my intentions! Before we came out to Uganda, the show promoters confirmed and proved to us they’d secured all the clearances including the Covid 19 compliance.

“At that point, my priority became to make myself available to be taken to the venue and entertain, which I did in the full protection of the Ugandan police.

”Secondly, to my mom, my family, my team, my fans, friends that I caused sleepless nights waiting and praying for me, I apologize for putting you through all that and I can’t stop thanking you enough. I almost lost my mind but your prayers and messages kept me going.

”Finally,I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your efforts, prayers, messages, tweets. You all went hard.

“Big shout out to my fellow musicians, fans, my family, my friends, my Label, The Nigerian Mission in Uganda, The Presidency, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Madam Abike. Thank you all so much!

”I have put this behind me and back to what I know how to do best. One Africa.Omah is home. He wrote.

Oh my loving Desdemona

Time could not wait for you

Your owners procastinate your life

But could not procrastinate your death

Delay caught you by the throat

Even when your owners were ready

Ready to save your life

Mr A was the problem

But Mr B cure was administered to you

Different pins went into your skin daily

These wicked vets., refused to allow your owners know about the nature of your sickness

These vets became useful fools

Even when the nature of your sickness was discovered

It was already too late

Too late to revive you

For the cold fingers already held you by the throat

For the sickness has eaten you deep

Deep beyond measures

The last pin entered your skin

Its content deliberating life or death

The last pin entered into your skin and its content sent you packing

Out of these beautiful world

Oh no the youngest owner watched

Watched the world crumble

For our beautiful Desdemona breath her last

Breath her last; at the same time tears dropped

Out of our last born’s eyes.

“Nigerian pastors are fraudsters” – Singer, Samklef says, reconciles with Daddy Freeze

Published

on

Nigerian Singer, Samklef and Daddy Freeze have ended their squabble 3 years after they mercilessly dragged and blocked each other on social media.

Recall that in 2018, Samklef and Daddy Freeze disagreed over religion.

Trouble started when Freeze criticized a report about the healing of a mentally challenged man at an RCCG church.

Samklef, who was displeased with his critics against men of God, slammed Freeze, telling him that his constant criticism of the church was getting boring.

The exchange heated up, with Freeze telling Samklef his career was dead which led to the singer calling him a “fake ass oyinbo” and his followers “mumu Satan followers”.

What Daddy Freeze said about Sound Sultan after his death

Following the development, they later blocked and unfollowed each other on all their social media platforms.

However, Samklef took to his Instagram account on Sunday to reach out to Daddy Freeze, stating that he can now see “clearly”.

He said most religious leaders are “419” and Freeze was right all along.

“I was blind and ignorant but now I understand and can see clearly.

“Everything Daddy Freeze has been saying is the truth. 90 percent of the so called Nigerian men of God are fraudsters.

“It’s your faith that makes you whole so they collect money for miracles that happens through you.

‘Praying to Lucifer more effective than praying to Jesus’ – Daddy Freeze

“Daddy Freeze is the John the baptist of this generation. I can finally see,” he wrote.

In his response, Freeze acknowledged his acceptance and admitted he should have been patient with Samklef at the time.
