Nigerian Artist Rexxie Arrested in Uganda, Sparks Outcry with #UgandaFreeRexxie


Nigerian record producer and singer, Chisom Faith, widely recognized as Rexxie, has found himself in legal turmoil in Uganda. The ‘KKP’ hitmaker took to Instagram on Monday morning to disclose his arrest by Ugandan Immigration, leaving fans in suspense about the reasons behind this unexpected development.

Rexxie, in a plea for assistance, refrained from revealing the circumstances surrounding his arrest, branding it as “unfair.” The artist is now urging his fan base to rally behind him with the hashtag, “UgandaFreeRexxie,” amplifying the call for his release.

This incident echoes recent events involving Nigerian musicians Omah Lay and Tems, who faced arrest and court charges in Uganda after performing at a concert in violation of COVID-19 social distancing regulations. The two artists were subsequently detained in prison but were released after spending two days behind bars.

As the situation unfolds, #UgandaFreeRexxie gains momentum on social media, drawing attention to the uncertainties surrounding Rexxie’s arrest and adding to the ongoing discourse on artists facing legal challenges while pursuing their craft abroad.
