Renonwed Ugandan music producer Daddy Andre has been requested to close down his studio following sexual harassment claims level against him by two upcoming musicians.
Last week, Female Ugandan musician and other artiste claimed Andre has made sexual advances towards them, after holding on to their songs longer than expected.
Following the claims, Ugandan Music Association through its president Sophie Gombya has vowed to investigate the issue and take necessary action.
Reports on Sanyuka TV indicate that Sophie requested Daddy Andre to close his studio amid the claims.
On his part, Daddy Andre has maintained that he is innocent, adding that he has never made sexual advances towards Nadia, or any other other artiste who comes to his studio to create music.
"How I knew Nadia, she is an artist just like the rest who come to the studio. We finished our project and she took the song. It is not that I refused to give it to her. I wrote the song, and they asked me for a collabo which I gave them. I do not know what she is saying that I asked her for intercourse. We only agreed to meet for the video shoot, not anything else.
"Maybe she is right about what she said (according to her), but what I did I took it before the courts of law for the lawyers to handle it. That is tarnishing someone's name because she accused me of sexual harassment. I will not say much but leave it for the lawyers,” he said.
Fans of the producer and the upcoming artistes are closely following the claims to see how it unfolds.
