Singer Catherine Kusasira has apologised for pleading with the government to compensate musicians for concerts that have been cancelled.
Here is her full apology:
I would like to take this opportunity to categorically apologize to all Ugandans that watched the video in which I appeared to suggest that I and other artists should be compensated for the concerts that have been cancelled in the coming 30 days.
It was an error of judgement on my part and I regret it. The entire nation is in distress because of the effects of corona virus therefore we as artists and entertainers should not get any preferential treatment.
Kindly accept my apology.
