Apparently, the ‘Muchuzi’ singer was supposed to perform at the UNAA causes festival which is meant to bring together all Ugandans in USA.

However, according to Rema, she got information that her baby Aamal had a tense medical condition, which prompted her to jet back to Uganda as soon as possible.

“I reached Detroit I got a message from my sister that my Aamaal’s sickness had intensified than I had earlier left her, honestly I think I couldn’t think straight no more,” she posted.

It’s from this point, that rumors started circulating that she was arrested for possessing invalid documents, forcing officials to deport her as soon as possible, though she swept it off claiming a job can never be as important as family.

“Just like any parent any job couldn’t be more important than family so I decided to cancel n return to my daughter immediately,” she said.

Below is Rema’s full statement

It’s funny how Ugandans love to come to conclusions most times but anyway Jst to clear the air I Rema Namakula was not detained,arrested or anything of asort and neither was I denied entry coz I HV been to USA before.

I flew from Entebbe to Amsterdam and as I reached Detroit I got a message from my sister that my Aamaals sickness had intensified than I had earlier left her,honestly I think I couldn’t think straight no more.
