Last week as Uganda’s president Yoweri Kagutta Museveni was swearing in at Kololo Ceremonial grounds, there was a marijuana raid carried out on singer Bobi Wine’s Fire Base studios by security agencies including the army and the Uganda police and four people were arrested.
“They were bundled up into a car, humiliated, and are now detained at Kira Road Police station. The arrested artists include: Red Aya, Dex, Wagi, and the CEO of Bigs promotion who had come to book these artists for a small gig.” said Bobi Wine.
Good news now is that all the four musicians who were captured have finally been released after spending close to four days behind police bars and the news was confirmed by the Fire Base president himself while condemning the police.
“Finally our artists have been released from jail since Thursday morning. We have done post-detention counselling and they are now already in a good mood heading to one love Beach Busabala for the Carnival. We are musicians not politicians…We are citizens not criminals!”
