Cindy survives being held hostage in DR Congo

Ugandan star Cindy has safely arrived in Kigali, Rwanda after rumors of her being held hostage in DR Congo circulated. To put the worries of her fans to rest, her management released the following statement;

‘There are rumors going around about RnB/dancehall artist CINDY SANYU being held hostage in DR. Congo, as her PR team, we would like to set the record straight.’

‘Cindy was contracted to perform in Lubumbashi, D.R. Congo at a concert that was supposed to take place on Monday 30th June 2014. She then arrived in Congo with one of her managers on Sunday 29th June just in time for the show.’

‘The promoter then cancelled the show that was due to take place on Monday for reasons unknown to us. He then suggested Cindy instead performs on Saturday 5th July which Cindy rejected due to the fact that she already had other bookings scheduled for that weekend.’

‘The promoter then decided to hold Cindy and her manager hostage and confiscated their passports. Cindy then contacted her team in Kampala who in turn contacted the Ugandan Embassy in Kinshasa who then contacted the Governor of Lubumbashi who came to their rescue. Travel arrangements were made for them to leave Lubumbashi immediately.’

‘Cindy arrived in Kigali, Rwanda last night in time for the celebration of the 20th Liberation day of Rwanda alongside Davido from Nigeria scheduled for Friday 4th July at Amahooro stadium.’
