The latest on our desk from our United kingdom counterparts, is that singers Winnie Nakanwagi also known as Winnie Nwagi and Fik Fameica, will not not be able to perform in the UK, following a petition by promoter Rizzi Mama Africa to the Home Office over flaunting and defaulting on an agreement made between her and the duo.
Mama Africa informed us that following her petition against Winnie Nwagi and Fik Fameica`s misconduct, the duo had been slapped with a 10-year ban. Mama Africa initially alleged that she paid Swangz Avenue 50k Pounds for the services of house singer, Winnie Nwagi.
She was to perform at the ‘Summer Fest 22’ on 6th July 2022, at Royal Regency, along with Fik Fameica and Haruna Mubiru. However, Mama Africa claims that prior to the show, Nwagi and Fik Fameica attended a rival Meet and Greet party contrary to their earlier agreement, a gesture that spelt doom for her own show.
She also asserted that Nwagi caused her a loss of over 65k Pounds and that Swangz Avenue, the label she had contracted to manage the artiste’s performance and entire trip, failed to meet its part of the bargain. We are now told that Mama Africa, has also petitioned UKICC, to also have all artistes affiliated to Swangz Avenue to suffer the same fate as Nwagi.
One of the roles of the UKICC states that if one is a UK-based consumer, and experiencing a problem with a company in another country, yet unsure what to do about it – “please get in touch.” The UKICC specializes in cross-border disputes, between UK consumers and businesses in other countries.
“We can let you know your rights; help determine the best course of action and, possibly, intervene on your behalf – all for free (we never charge fees or commission – and we don’t sell any products or services). If the said petition comes into effect, Swangz Avenue, star singers like the high-flying news sensation Zawedde aka Azawi will be dealt a huge blow in breaking through the European entertainment market.
