Rema Namakula Distances Self from Corona Virus Song Making Rounds Online
7 April 2020
With confirmed cases of corona virus in the Uganda going up every day, different people especially celebrities aren't staying quiet about the pandemic.
Instead, they are speaking out on social media not only to keep fans informed but, in some cases, to urge followers to stay home in order to help reduce the risk of transmission.
We have seen quite a number of songs from different artistes like; Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool, Vinka, A Pass, John Blaq, Azawi, Fik Fameica, Fresh Daddy, Fresh Kid, Lady Akira, Allan Hendrick alias Paper Daddy, Lydia Jazmine, Eddy Yaweh, King Saha, Levixone, Aziz Azion, Irene Kayemba, Lyto Boss, Geoffrey Lutaaya, Joanita Kawalya, Moses Matovu among others raise their voices in awareness, also urging their followers to follow the directives given by Ministry of Health.
With this much awareness, some artistes have chosen not to sing about the pandemic.
There has been a song about corona virus making rounds on social media with a female voice so similar to that of Ugandan songstress Rema Namakula.
Her fans were excited that she has finally spoken out, but unfortunately, we have some bad news for you.
Rema through her social media pages has come out to publicly deny the song.
"Not a good time for this but just for clarity that corona song going around with my names and picture does not belong to me," she said.
Well, she isn’t the first artiste to do this. A few days ago, lugaflow rapper Gravity Omutujju appeared on national TV branding all these corona songs boring.
"I'm fed up. Even the artistes releasing these songs are annoying me more because they are boring. Thing is, people are not well so they need food so you can't sing for them songs. Who doesn't know that corona is here?" Gravity posed.
