The Nigerian singers were arrested in Uganda for violating COVID-19 protocols by performing at a crowded concert, a concert Bebe Cool had earlier ranted about on Facebook.
Despite the arrest, Many Ugandans however noted that the organisers of the concert informed the authorities about the event as it was publicized many months in advance.
Their arrest triggered mixed reactions on social media, as some Ugandans seized the opportunity to slam Nigerians in their country.
Reacting to the comments, Yvonne Jegede shared her experience from working on a movie set in Uganda.
The actress who recalled being labelled proud after she said she doesn’t know any Ugandan artiste, stated that their self esteem issues, have nothing to do with Nigerians.

I was in #Uganda in 2013 to shoot a film, after every sentence came “you Nigerians are very proud”, even when I said I didn’t know any Ugandan artist I was labeled proud. I am proud of where I come from, your self esteem issues has nothing to with Nigerians
