Tarrus Riley was confirmed three months ago to perform in a show in Uganda on December 1 alongside Maddox Ssematimba and other Ugandan artistes.
The show which was scheduled to take place next Friday at Cricket Oval in Lugogo can only be confirmed as failed.
RED FOG a new event orgsaniser which was responsible for bringing him here released an official statement after he posted on his verified Facebook page and issued a statement that indicated why he won’t perform in Uganda.
Earlier, it was stated that Tarrus Riley was booked for a Festival in Jamaica and he was to be paid twice the Ugandan money and it was the reason he called off the Ugandan show.
All these were false stories because according to the singer’s statement, the event organizers were failed by the official Sponsors of the show and this failed the show from going on. They sent Tarrus an email asking if they could fix another date for the concert.
