Nigerian fast-rising singer, Tems, has dropped her official statement after her arrest and release from the Ugandan prison
This statement is coming on the 18th of December after her arrival to Nigeria on the 17th of December from Uganda where she and her colleague, Omah Lay, were arrested for allegedly going against the COVID-19 laws of the country.
According to the statement, Tems revealed she had no idea her performance will jeopardize a lot of people’s health or place people at risk of contracting the viral 2020 epidemic and for that she pens her apology to both the fans and the government of Uganda.
“I am truly saddened that attendees could’ve possibly been exposed to COVID-19. I would’ve never participated had I even the slightest knowledge that the event would not meet standard operating procedures and put Uganda citizens at risk. The seriousness of COVID-19 requires responsibility from everyone as a world citizen, responsibility I take very seriously”.
