Popular Nigerian artist, Omah lay and others were arrested by officers of Uganda in Kampala earlier today for reportedly violating Covid-19 guidelines.

The artist was arrested after his performance last night at The Big Brunch, which was held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Rd, Kampala, Uganda. His arrest was confirmed by Luk Owoyesigyire, Assistant Superintendent of Police and Deputy Police Spokesperson, Kampala Metropolitan Police.

Owoyesigyire also confirmed that Dungu Ivan, the manager of the venue where Omah Lay performed and Prim Kasana, the event manager were arrested alongside the artiste.

According to the Ugandan news outlet, The Independent, the organizers of the event disguised the show as a lunch and dinner event but later on, at night started inviting artists to perform.

The Independent added that Omah Lay and the others are currently being held at Katwe police station and are being charged with doing “acts that are likely to cause the spread of infectious disease Covid-19.”

The Ugandan president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, suspended music concerts and that directive still stands, The Independent reported. Uganda’s Ministry of Health on Sunday reported 461 new confirmed coronavirus cases, taking the total number of cases in the country to 27,532.

In an update to the story, Nigerian music & entertainment consultant, Bizzle Osikoya revealed that Omah Lay has been released:
