Omah Lay was imprisoned in Uganda along with a well-known Nigerian female artist, Tems. They were detained in December 2020 during their sold-out concert in Kampala, Uganda, and charged with negligently engaging in acts likely to spread an infectious disease (COVID-19). After his arrest, the hashtag #FreeOmahLay started trending on Twitter.

Omah Lay was held after the concert because the country had just come out of the coronavirus lock down. The Nigerian government and a number of celebrities attempted to gain their release.

3. Tems

Because they both performed at the same sold-out performance in Kampala, Uganda in December 2020, Tems and Omah Lay were both imprisoned there.

Her arrest also gave rise to the #FreeTems. Tems and Omah Lay were eventually released after the charges against them were dropped.

Oluwatobiloba Daniel, better known by his stage name Kizz Daniel, is a Nigerian singer who was allegedly arrested in Tanzania for skipping a paid concert there.

Videos that went viral purportedly showed the singer's assembled crowd of Tanzanian admirers storming out in a frenzy and destroying the venue.

The Buga crooner was scheduled to play at the Warehouse, Old Nextdoor Arena in Tanzania on Sunday night as a part of his Afro Classic World Tour.

A video of a furious fan damaging the event's location showed up when he didn't show up earlier that day.

However, a new video making its way around Twitter depicts the musician being led into a police vehicle while donning a hooded jacket.

Although I only selected to mention five of the many Nigerian celebrities that have been detained abroad, if you are aware of any others, please let us know.
