Fresh Kid’s father Paul Mutabaazi has been the butt of insults over blocking his son’s Dubai show. This was after he made demands to be part of his (Fresh Kid’s) entourage and yet the organizers were willing to cater for the transport and accommodation of two people.
While speaking to the Kampala sun, he defends himself saying that he is doing his best to protect his son from becoming a nuisance and all this is done basing on an agreement that was signed under fresh kid’s management and the ministry of Gender.
In the agreement, Mutabaazi says that he is entitled to travel with his son for shows within and outside the country. He backs it up saying that breaking this rule would hold him questionable over breach of contract on the agreement that was signed in the presence of the rapper’s mother, father and manager.
Mutabaazi uses this to defend himself from fighting for an air ticket where an event organizer based in Dubai clarifies that Fresh kid should only come along with his manager but his father insists that Mutabaazi cant travel without his company.
Fresh kid’s father narrates
I introduced fresh to the music industry with the help of manager Francis. I have never wished for his talent to die. As we speak, I have just met the ministry of gender permanent secretary Paul Bigirimana over the issue.
He advised me to sit on a round table with the manager and sort this out. He also said that Fresh kid can travel with the manager on condition that I sign an agreement allowing him to go with my son. He added that manager Francis should provide information about everything concerning how the boy will travel on paper. Basing on the agreement. This is an issue that had to be sorted before the boy travels. I have no problem. Fresh can travel with his manager. It’s the bloggers who have been exaggerating everything. When I feel like traveling to Dubai, I will work on my passport and solicit the money. Someone told me that a flight to Dubai is Cheap. I will go on my own,”
