KAMPALA – Gagamel International C.E.O musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool on Tuesday faced the wrath of the angry staff at the Nigerian High Commission in Uganda in Nakasero when he was bitterly thrown out of the embassy premises.
Bebe who had accompanied the two Nigerian artists Omar Lay and Tems that had just been released from prison had an intention of having a live interview with the artists on a local entertainment TV show to assure the nation they were safe and sound.
Stanley Omah Didia alias Omah Lay, Temilade Openyi alias Tems were released from jail after spending a night in the coolers. They had been accused of violating the Covid-19 rules in the country after they held a concert in Kampala.
However, after working closely with the police to secure their release, Bebe Cool, who was trending on social media for having done a good job, was left in total shock after being bounced at the embassy.
“Their conduct has not been good. I don’t know whether it’s the ambassador or an official from the embassy but a gentleman told me; ‘a person called Bebe Cool should get out of this place’. This was really uncalled for,” Bebe said.
With the gossip that was flying around on social media of how the ‘Wakayima’ singer had snitched on the Nigerian stars, some officials at the commission accused Bebe Cool of masterminding the arrest of the artistes but he denied the allegations.
He however understood their anger and said that given the fact that so much had been said ever since the two were arrested, the embassy could not have a warm reception to Ugandans at the time since they had heard quite a lot.
Bebe advised Ugandan musicians to learn to stand together and defend their country because this where they have their roots.
“So much has happened to humanity in the world due to Covid-19, there is a need to focus on not hurting each other more than what the pandemic has done to us.”
