Recall that the duo were arrested on December 13 and detained at the Katwe Police Station in Kampala for performing at an ‘unauthorised concert’ and breaking COVID-19 protocols.

They were, however, released to the Nigerian embassy after two days in custody and being arraigned in court.

Reacting to the incident, the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, confirmed their release.

According to her, the musicians would fly out to Nigerian as soon as possible.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa, whose commission worked closely with several bodies to secure the release of the musicians in Uganda, shared photos of the singers on Twitter to confirm their release.
