Rema Namakula was reported yesterday to have been deported back to Uganda after failing to raise a genuine reason as to why she was flying to the USA. It also said the artiste was briefly detained in Amsterdam before she was put on the next plane back to Uganda.
However, Rema refuted the allegations saying her child’s health was the main reason for her return back home.
“It’s funny how Ugandans love to come to conclusions most times but anyway just to clear the air I Rema Namakula was not detained, arrested or anything of a sort and neither was I denied entry coz I have been to USA before. I flew from Entebbe to Amsterdam and as I reached Detroit I got a message from my sister that my Aamaal’s sickness had intensified than I had earlier left her, honestly I think I couldn’t think straight no more. Just like any parent any job couldn’t be more important than family so I decided to cancel and return to my daughter immediately.”
She also apologized to the organizers of the annual UNAA convention for not turning up at their event.
“I would like to apologize to UNAA CAUSES plus my New York fans. I promise to make it up to you. Thank u all that managed to check on us at case hospital, we are now back home and God willing she will be fine.”
Rema was among the headlined artistes to perform at this convention after becoming one of the best female artistes in Uganda recently with songs like ‘Deep in love’, Lean on me, Oliwange, Muchuzi, fire tonight, Kukaliba among others.
