Swangz Avenue singer Winnie Nwagi has retracted her comments she recently made about legendary band UB40 concert in Uganda. Next Media Services took to their platforms and announced how UB40 and Ali Campbell will be performing in the concert in December.
Quickly Nwagi took to her social media pages and expressed her disappointment in this concert. She said that she couldn’t believe the company had put everyone on tenterhooks just to announce UB40.
The Matala singer added that these artists are of long ago and not suitable for the current market. She added that she expected someone like Beyonce or even at least Westlife if they had decided to go old school.
Now in a twist of events, through her Snapchat, the singer apologized for the comments. And this is just surprising since she rarely gives a damn about her comments.
According to the singer, she grew up listening to the Red Red Wine singers. And in fact, they are her inspiration.
“The reason why I love you is that you light up my day; you are my sun. UB40’s music was a major inspiration for me when starting out, and I respectfully retract my earlier statement. I sincerely apologize to Talent Africa and NBS TV,” she wrote on her Snapchat.
However, sources have it that she apologized because her label, Swangz Avenue asked her to. Her comments were not received well by Next Media and Talent Africa who are behind the concert.
And the two companies have a swift working relationship with Swangz Avenue. In short her apology wasn’t voluntary but rather a forced one.
