Burna Boy, Davido and other Nigerian artistes have called for the release of Omah Lay and Tems.
Tems and Omah Lay were arrested in Uganda for flouting COVID-19 order in the country.
They were charged to court and detained in Uganda prison till Wednesday.
Their arrest has since stirred reactions from the likes of Burna Boy, Davido who asked the Ugandan government to release their colleagues to return to Nigeria.
Burna Boy on his Twitter page wrote: “Uganda, Please we need our people home and safe. Free Tems, OmahLay.”
@Davido “ Omo this Ugandan P, how can we help? What can we do? Artists just tryna eat! They didn’t bargain for this! Police BIG CAP!!
@Runtown “ Its a total shame that Nigerian artists Omah Lay and Tems who flew into Uganda LEGALLY for a publicly announced event are being hounded and embarrassed in such a manner.”
