A Ugandan court in Makindye has ordered the immediate release of the two fast-rising Nigerian singers in the Ugandan police custody, Omah Lay and Tems.
The two artistes will finally be able to return to Nigeria after being held in detention for the last 3-days for allegedly flouting the COVID-19 rules in the East-African country.
