@burnaboy – “They should not be treated like this! @PoliceUg ?! they were invited for a show organised by your citizens, granted visas, tickets were sold publicly on the WORLD WIDE WEB! this anarchy should not be targeted at the artists! #freetems #FreeOmahLawn – “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. #FreeOmahLay #FreeTems @GovUganda @abikedabiri”
@phynofino – “This is crazy .. If u Knw u would arrest them after the show .. why let them into your country in the first place .. africa sha”p
@cuppymusic – “Please keep Omah Lay and Tems safe, they shouldn’t be targeted or treated unfairly. #FreeOmahLay #FreeTems.”
@Johnnydrille – “#FreeOmahLay #FreeTems. The artistes didn’t invite themselves, Uganda did. Why are they getting embarrassed? Release them now @PoliceUg”
@fireboydml – “what is going on? @PoliceUg why are Omah Lay and Tems being mistreated?! #FreeOmahLay #FreeTems everyone please let’s create more awareness on this, it’s no longer funny !”
“Wasn’t there prior publicity about the show? Why wasn’t it shut down before it was held? Why are you arresting some popular artiste that performed? Who organized the show?
