Nigerian Duo Omah Lay and Tems Remanded to Prison

Nigerian hitmakers Stanley Omah Didia, aka Omah Lay, and Temilade Openyi, aka Tems, have this afternoon been remanded by a court in Makindye. And the judge has refrained from issue of bailing them ou and remanded them to Kitalya prison.

This comes after they were charged with committing negligent acts likely to spread an infectious disease contrary to the Penal Code.

It is reported that Omah Lay performed at a concert over the weekend at Dungu Resort in Munyonyo, in which numerous people gathered and broke coronavirus restrictions previously set by President Museveni.

Large public gatherings such as concerts have been halted from March 2020, thus it came as a surprise that the Nigerian artiste Omah Lay was able to perform to a group of revelers.

Tems’ manager, Muyiwa Awomiyi, was also charged alongside four Ugandans by Makindye grade one magistrate Jude Okumu who suspended plans of releasing them on police bond after their case file was sanctioned by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution.

They will all return to court on December 16th for mention of their case. Meanwhile, Ugandan artistes are still boiling in anger having allowed Omah and his crew to perform when they are still locked up by the government.
