B2C Soldiers Blacklisted By UK Promoters After Pocketing Dime And Refusing To Perform At Concert

By Ivan Mwine

Ugandan musicians who perform under their group name the B2C  Soldiers have been blacklisted by events promoters in the United Kingdom  after they received money to perform at a concert in London but later turned around and refused to honour their part of the bargain.

Sources privy to the matter reveal that the B2C, who include; Ssali Peterson aka Bobby Lash,  Kasagga Julius aka Delivad and Mugisha Richard aka Mr. Lee,  had been hired to perform at a concert dubbed ‘Entujjo Y’omwaka 2022’, which is slated to be held at the Royal Regency Hotel, London, this Saturday June 11th, 2022.

Remah Namakula confirmed that she will perform at the concert

The sources reveal that the organisers of the event paid the B2C boys the money they asked for through their manager Enock Katete, and processed travel documents for them including visas and work permits, but after pocketing the dime they   changed colours like chameleons and refused to fly to London, without giving credible explanation.

A statement from the event organisers reads in part thus;

“Dear our esteemed customers.

We would like to let you that Entujjo yo mwaka is taking place this Saturday. Rema Namakula is here already, Juliana will be with us tomorrow Thursday and Mesarch Semakula  will arrive on Friday.

Unfortunately,  B2C have taken a decision not to travel to the UK without the  3rd member.  The other 2 members of B2C have their passports with UK visas. We have engaged the management and tried our best and met all other contractual obligations the two members to represent the B2C but they’ve made a decision not come.

As communicated before the UK visa processing dept  hasn’t returned Carol Kasita plus Madox Ssematimba and the band’s passport.

We look forward to entertaining you this Saturday 11/06/2022”

We have since established that following their refusal to perform at the event, several promoters in the UK have vowed never to book the B2C to perform at any event there and the organisers of ‘Entujjo   Y’omwaka’ concert are considering taking the matters to court such that the musicians can be brought to justice for their  fraud.
