The Omah Lay Saga made me popular in Nigeria – Bebe Cool

ENTERTAINMENT – Musician Bebe Cool real names Moses Ssali has come out and boasted that the arrest of two Nigerian artistes, Omah Lay and Tems made him popular in their country (Nigeria).

In December last year, these two Nigerian artistes were arrested in Uganda for the flouting COVID-19 guidelines following a controversial concert that was held at Ddungu Resort in Munyonyo Kampala. The arrest of the two musicians was blamed on Bebe Cool.

However, according to Bebe Cool, this saga propelled his brand in Nigeria to a level his music had failed. He argued that local artistes have to learn to take advantage of things, fortunate, unfortunate and bend them to their benefit.

“An artiste is supposed to benefit from anything that comes their way, be it positive or negative. Perhaps I couldn’t have penetrated into Nigeria with a song but I did with the Omah Lay situation, that’s what artists should do, take advantage of situations,” he said while appearing on a local television station.

Bebe Cool was particularly singled out for engineering his arrest together with Tems because via social media, he vowed to block the gig.

These two artistes, Omah Lay and Tems were subsequently arrested by officers of the Uganda police force in Kampala, Uganda for reportedly flouting covid-19 guidelines and they spent two days in police custody with a court hearing before they were released and returned to Nigeria on Thursday, December 17, 2020.
